"Cassette-only release. Limited edition of 250 copies only. This is a remix of Fenneszs Szampler cassette, created by Stefan Goldmann, erasing Christian Fenneszs original samples one by one and replacing them with corresponding samples of his own, made between 1999-2010 for his Akai S5000 sampler, in the same sequence. As a result, this cassette contains no sounds whatsoever from Fenneszs original. While Szampler was a journey through Christian Fennesz own sample collection, Stefan Goldmann structured his own sound archive around the layout of Szampler, replacing it all sound-by-sound. The result is a dialog of the sonic atoms that built the works of two of todays most challenging musical minds. Its a first-ever glimpse behind the curtains -- a full anatomy of sound, more revealing than any interview on "how it was done." When asked for his opinions on the art of the remix, Mr. Goldmann was unavailable for comment. So, instead, heres some words, written by Trevor Horn in 1986, that appeared on the rear sleeve of Frankie Goes To Hollywoods Warriors Of The Wasteland 12" single: "This twelve wild disciples version of Warriors is, of course, a remix of the track that opens the Frankie album Liverpool. The question is now begged -- what is a remix? It used to be a change of clothes, now its a dream come true. There is one answer. On Liverpool, the members of Frankie Goes To Hollywood played Warriors with their own notoriously fair hands: touching their instruments, squeezing, banging, urging, making noises which were recorded by microphones onto a tape recorder. This so-called 12", this marketing invention, this golden gate to possibilities is in fact a total cheat. What is a remix? A total cheat. There is another answer. No one played anything, in any orthodox sense. It was all done by computers, very powerful computers (38 megabytes RAM 600 megabytes hard disk storage) juggling and organizing pre-recorded sounds. We all had a hand in it -- that is, myself, Steve, Andy Richards the keyboard player, the lads, Holly and Paul. We all peered over the computer operators shoulder at the little screen, to see what the hell was going on, willing the circuits to do their uncanny business. From the little screen leapt twelve wild disciples, with their gifts for the listener. What is a remix? A gift. -- when its Frankie, and Frankie only. And this 12" is Frankie. Only." Cover features an illustration by Hau/Viet Hoa Le." -The Tapeworm
