Bush of Ghosts MP3s

Several months following the launch of the website promoting the re-release of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, David Byrne and Brian Eno‘s trailblazing 1981 essay into trance-inducing sampling and pop minimalism, the public-domain, communal remix portion of that site has finally gone live at Download the constituent parts of two full-length tracks (20 for “A Secret Life” and 24 for “Help Me Somebody”), and upload your own version. There’s a lot of blank space in most of the individual tracks, though several, including the hyper-delicate, tremolo-heavy “Ambient Synth 1” (MP3) and “Ambient Synth 2” (MP3), both from “A Secret Life,” are listenable to entirely on their own. Note: registration at the site may be necessary for those downloads to function.
