After going and seeing Amon Tobin live in Melbourne I got to thinking about classical music. I think classical music’s appeal has diminished significantly over time due to “pop” music and the advent of electronic music. What I think would be cool would be for Amon to reinterpret the compositions of the classical masters: Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, etc.
Amon has an amazing ability to create interesting, intelligent music that never gets old. I think taking Amon’s unique style of finding and creating sounds and then layering them into fantastic arrangements makes him the perfect candidate to take on something as challenging as reinterpreting the Masters.
The title I came up was:
The title was based around satirising replying to the Masters via an electronic form which was never available in their day. It was also a play on the word remaster – Make a new master of (a recording), typically in order to improve the sound quality.
I’m not a musician, I’m a computer programmer so feel free to steal the idea, album title, whatever suits. If you like the idea would love a mention in the album cover 😛
