...yep, you guessed right - this is a competition open
to any aspiring electronic muzak hacks out there, and it's open until january 2007.
Is Ary Barroso's Aquarela do Brasil (otherwise known as just plain Brazil) the best song penned to
We here at this de-VICE think so, and it's
been crooned, remixed, reshuffled, and reinterpreted by people as far afield as Frank Sinatra, S-Express, Little Nobody,
Kate Bush, Xavier Cugat, Toots Thielemans & Elis Regina, Dionne Warwick, Desi Arnaz, Joao Gilberto, the Three Tenors,
etc., ad infinitum - not to mentioned used as the signature
theme for Terry Gilliam's excellent movie 1985 celluloid romp ironically also titled Brazil.
...anyway, if you find yourself at all vaguely
interested in submitting your own interpretation of this enigmatic ditty, in an electronic muzak style - with a definite
sense of humour in the mix - then start a-tweaking!!
Our buds at Melbourne/Tokyo label IF? Records
will be releasing a compilation of Brazil mixes in 2007, so the final date for submission will be January 1, 2007.
