Re: What's this ???

The remix album with no composer...the track with no name. Unlike other remix albums, Chinese Whispers is a hermetically sealed cyclical recording remix project, but with no original track to begin with. All the artists participating had no idea who they were remixing. They were working in the dark, samples arriving anonymously. All they were aware of was who was involved, who these audio snippets might be from. Stereolab provided the original unconnected miscellaneous samples (ie not from an existing track) to start the ball rolling, and nine remixes later were given the final samples from the last artist's track (in this case T Power) back, to create their final track.

I remember this compilation from back in the day, when I still browsed cd sections at record stores. it seemed like an interesting concept, but not enough so that I would spend my money on it - figured their track would end up on the next Switched On, but it's been an awfully long wait
