Launched on May 10 by Songlines magazine and in partnership with PRS Foundation, the Songlines Remix Competition was open to UK music creators to remix one of David Attenborough’s sound recordings from his critically acclaimed album, My Field Recordings From Across The Planet. The track, ‘Gender Wayang’, was recorded in Bali over 50 years ago:
From over 300 submissions our distinguished panel, comprising Sir David Attenborough, Cerys Matthews, Ghostpoet, Gilles Peterson, Hannah Peel and Matthew Herbert, as well as gamelan expert Andy Channing, whittled down the entries to a shortlist of six. The public have been voting on their favourite remix (voting ended September 15) and you can still listen to all six remixes below.
The winner will be announced on November 1 in the December issue of Songlines (#153) and will be presented with their award and perform their remix at this year’s Songlines Music Awards ceremony on November 30 at EartH in Dalston.
