“A long time ago Grizzly Bear asked us to remix one of their tracks, but we never found the boldness to mess with their beautiful songs. So the other day we figured, maybe if we combine great things together (Grizzly Bear, Eno, chance), it would create something good.”
Phoenix recently took some time from its never ending world tour to unveil what it calls “Grizzly Bear’s ‘Foreground’ – An aleatory and combinatory remix by Phoenix”. Basically, the French indie rockers discovered that if you combine Grizzly Bear’s “Foreground” and Brian Eno’s “Canon in D Major”, you get something pretty incredible. Just follow these simple instructions to hear for yourself:
1. Press play on either player (aka the YouTube videos)
2. After an indefinite number of seconds, press play on other player
3. You can create your own mix by adjusting the volume on either player
4. If it’s good : enjoy, if it’s bad : try again !
Have at it.
