Amoeba Review

In the two decades-plus he’s represented the Scott estate, producer/archivist Irwin Chusid has sought to reinvent and rebrand Raymond for the 21st Century. On Raymond Scott Rewired, he lets others take the parts and reconstruct the legacy. Chusid commissioned three remix artists to reconfigure Scott. The Bran Flakes (Otis Fodder, Montreal), The Evolution Control Committee (TradeMark Gunderson, U.S.), and Go Home Productions (Mark Vidler, U.K.) were given hundreds of recordings owned by the Scott estate, in all genres, including unreleased material, spanning the 1930s to the 1980s. They were invited to have fun, keep it rhythmic, and make it percolate. Each chemist concocted six audio montages with new titles, and they collaborated on Scott’s signature tune “Powerhouse.” Approximately 250 sample sources were used in the construction of these 19 tracks. Those samples have been edited, looped, flipped, and stretched; they were tweaked with equalization, pitch-shifted, compressed, and subjected to all manner of digital cosmetology. Scott fans will recognize some passages, but in countless cases, the source recordings have been rendered unrecognizable.
