Hello, HAL. Do you read me, HAL?

One of KUBRICK’S FINEST FILMS and a personal favorite around here at MixtapeMixtape is 2001: A Space Odyssey.  Few films have married image and sound together in such an intricate and nuanced way as 2001 and even after repeated viewings some FORTY (forty!) YEARS LATER, we are still discovering new things to admire about this film.

And now, as if reading our minds, artist/blogger/photographer TIM JAMES has re-imagined the score to Kubrick’s masterpiece in an alternate universe shaped by Indie and Classic Rock.  Most would break under the pressure of innovating on such a classic film, but Mr. James stared into the abyss and defied it on this one.  You have taken something that we already loved and made it even more interesting…your place in heaven is reserved.

Go to THESUMMERMIXSERIES for more nice mixes…although we’d like to remind you that we were here first.  hugs and kisses, mixtapemixtape.
