Since the release of this compilation, the idea of the mix and the methods in which one creates a remix have drastically evolved. For this exhibition, artists were asked to create an original remix of the tracks from TELLUS TOOLS that utilizes an innovative mixing method. These works were composed using a variety of techniques, from algorithmic processing to physical alterations of data from the audio. Each remixed composition is unique and highlights varying aspects of the original tracks. This exhibition displays the multiplicity of contemporary approaches to music and sound composition.
