Many people may think of remixing as the exclusive territory of DJs and rock musicians. However, remixing has made its way into new classical music. Now, according to Christian Carey’s post on Sequenza21, renowned minimalist composer Steve Reich will integrate the technique into one of his own compositions. Reich, Nonesuch Records, and Indaba Music have kicked off a contest for collaborators to remix the third movement from Reich’s 2×5. The work will join his Pulitzer Prize-winning Double Sextet on an upcoming Nonesuch CD.

Aspiring collaborators have four weeks, beginning October 12, 2010 at noon, to visit Indaba’s website and create their own version of the movement. Reich, along with fans and a panel of judges, will review the submissions from November 9 to 23rd. The winners will be announced on December 7th. In addition to a grand prize and 2 runners-up selected by the jury, 10 honorable mentions will be selected by the public.

Prize winners will receive:
