While technically a remix album, life.refactored is a "total album remix" of the original life.remixed. Instead of focusing on the tracks on an individual basis, elements from the original tracks from the original album were interweaved to become a new, separate work. In some cases the individual tracks have significantly more affinity to their "originals" while others have taken on drastically new forms.
I created life.refactored with the constraint of only using samples from the original album. Only some "stock" samples including a cymbal and an Amen break were used as an exception to that constraint.
life.refactored is intended to be experienced with the continuous mix, but the tracks have been made available for download as well.
A familiarity with the orignal album life.remixed is recommended but not required.
