Refashioning classical music by contemporary, often electronic producers, seems to be quite popular these days, with varying results. Austria has done a similar project with recontextualisations of Haydn or Schwanensee and this time, it’s a mutual collaboration between Romania and the Czech Republic. An open call for remixes of the Czech composer Antonín Dvořák invites young or established producers to create their modern versions of the 19th century master on the occasion of his 170 birthday anniversary. 

During the whole month, aspiring Dvořák remixers should recreate any piece or fragment from his ouvre, all styles are welcome. The remixes will be uploaded here. The remixes shouldn’t be longer than 5 minutes. They will be sent in mp3 format, 320kbps, at (via, wetransfer etc). All the received tracks will be subjected to the Creative Commons license.

Deadline: December 31st, 11:59pm.

The best tracks will also be broadcast on Radio Romania Cultural and the Czech Radio and the winner will receive a trip to Prague.
