Last year, Thom Yorke had electronic artist and composer Clark remix his track "Not the News" and now he's returned the favor. Yorke has remixed Clark's "Isolation Theme" from the composer's score for thriller Daniel Isn't Real. "I took Clark’s score of ‘Isolation Theme’ and simply made it feel like the moment we were entering; being told to stay indoors, entering a new type of silence," Yorke says. "I guess I simplified it in a way, into waveforms that were being disrupted. I was surprised how frightening it became."
Clark adds, "I started working on Daniel Isn’t Real around the time I was asked to remix Thom’s track ‘Not The News’, so it has a neat circularity closing the expanded edition of the score with him remixing me. I was surprised how well the midi translated to his remix. He got such a good pure electronic tone out of it. It amazes me how simple note information, if it has a nice shape, can transmit to multiple voicings. This isn't good news for genres. It's good news for me though."
