via Pitchfork:

Rather than remixing a single song off of the new Ra Ra Riot album The Orchard, Peter Silbermanfrontman for Brooklyn indie band the Antlers, has done something out of the ordinary: taken snippets from every song on the album and fashioned them into its own piece of work. You can hear “The Antler Orchard (Peter SilbermanRemix)” above. Below, read what Silberman had to say about doing the remix this way:



"In doing this remix for Ra Ra Riot, I wanted to attempt something different than the remixes I’ve done in the past and the massive amounts of them I’ve encountered recently. My approach was to try something I expected to fail— to remix the entire record into one track, but to avoid a medley. I pulled extremely short samples from every song off their latest The Orchard (before listening to the record) and built something new. The samples were chosen based on the shape of their waveform, seeking out smaller waveforms that, I assumed, would be the sparer, more stripped-down parts of the songs. There are no outside instruments or samples, and everything you’re hearing has been pulled from The Orchard. Now, after getting to know the record, I can safely say the remix sounds pretty foreign from its source.”
