Radiohead Reckoner Remix Project

Followup to popular Nude Remix Project.

By Blurt Staff

After the overwhelming response to the Nude Remix Project, Radiohead are giving
fans the opportunity to remix “Reckoner”, another track from the
band’s latest album “In Rainbows” at

To make remixing easy, the separate ‘stems’ (e.g., component parts of the song)
from the song will be available to purchase on iTunes. The ‘stems’ available
are bass, lead vocal, backing vocals, guitars, piano/strings and drums. 
All six stems will be available to buy for the price of a single track. 
Fans can mix them in any way they like, either by adding their own beats and
instrumentation, or just remixing the original parts.

Fans who purchase the ‘stems’ from iTunes during the first two weeks they’re
available, will be sent an access code to a GarageBand file ready to open in
GarageBand or Logic. However, you don’t need GarageBand to do a remix, the
stems are available in the DRM-free iTunes Plus format and compatible with
several music software platforms.

Finished mixes can be uploaded to  where the public will listen and vote for
their favourite. Fans can also create a widget allowing votes from their own
website, Facebook or MySpace page to be counted as ‘mix votes’ back on .

A number of mixes have already been posted to the site. Currently the most
popular one is by a gentleman or entity going by the name of Sebastien Project.
