From the Marillion web site:
We invited talented bunnies out there to remix any of their chosen songs from our Anoraknophobia album. We provided a series of CDs which were effectively the multitracks (or multitrack "stems") of each song on our Anoraknophobia album so that anyone with appropriate music software could deconstruct and rebuild the songs to their hearts' content. We hope you had fun whether or not you made it all the way on to this CD and that perhaps you gained further insight into how we arrange our music. The point of this experiment, however, was for you to take some aspect of our ideas and express yourself.. and as you can hear, the results are many miles away from our originals!
As this experiment took the form of a competition (the Anoraknophobia Remix Contest), we have selected winners from over 500 entries and all five of us voted for our favourites. Winners have been awarded a cash prize and a place on this CD. The wide range of approaches and styles really surprised us. Some entries made us laugh, some made us grimace, and some knocked us out. It's probably unfair to single out any one remix here so we won't, but it's true to say that one or two of the tracks here really blew us away. We don't pretend that this is a Marillion album, but we hope you enjoy the new and radical takes on our music.
Runners-Up of the contest will appear onthe Web Christmas 2004 CD, sent out free to all Web Fan Club members in November/December 2004
