After the coincidental release of ‘The Storm Before The Calm’ on World Goth Day earlier this year, Beauty in Chaos does a darkwave double-down with their new remix release ‘Out Of Chaos Comes…’, to be released on Halloween 2020. Once again, BIC turns the creative reins over to an extremely talented cast of producers, artists and DJs, including Tim Palmer (The Mission, U2, David Bowie), John Fryer (Cocteau Twins, HIM, Depeche Mode), Film Composer Tyler Bates (John Wick, The Watchmen, Guardians Of The Galaxy), The Cure’s Roger O’Donnell, UK-based EDM star Bentley Jones, and Marilyn Manson’s guitarist Paul Wiley.
“I really enjoy the process of handing over the keys and seeing where others take songs that I am so close to. The creative process and result of ‘Beauty Re-Envisioned’ was such an amazing experience that I thought, why we don’t we give that another go!” So basically, ‘Out Of Chaos Comes…’ is to ‘The Storm Before The Calm’ as ‘Beauty Re-Envisioned’ is to the ‘Finding Beauty in Chaos’ LP,” says BIC curator Michael Ciravolo.
Earlier, Beauty in Chaos previewed Tim Palmer‘s‘A Kind Cruelty’ (The Sinistrality Mix)’, featuring Curse Mackey (Pigface, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Evil Mothers) on vocals and an appearance by guitarist Simon Hinkler (The Mission).
The full 27-track collection (available on CD) is deep and diverse and includes a few surprises. Ashton Nyte’s gorgeous acoustic version of ‘The Outside’, Cinthya Hussey (whose beautiful painting also graces the cover) does a beautiful rendition of ‘The Delicate Balance Of All Things’, and an acoustic/mellotron drenched ‘Memory Of Love’ from Human Drama’s Johnny Indovina. You will even find some new and fantastic guitar moments from Simon Hinkler, Richard Fortus (G’nR), Mark Gemini Thwaite and Nick Johnston.
“I have now remixed 2 versions of the wonderful Beauty In Chaos song ‘The Delicate Balance Of All Things’ – one with Wayne and the other with Wayne’s wife Cinthya. It’s a strong composition and works very well with a male and female perspective and performance. The versions are very different. I always jump at the chance of working with a Hussey. Either one of them!”says Tim Palmer, while Roger O’Donnell (The Cure) shouts “First of all I was pissed at Michael for not asking me to play on his album but then I forgave him when he asked me to do a remix and with the incredible Kat Leon on vocals, how could I say no? He wanted to tell me the chords and the structure and I was like fuck that all I need are the vocals hahahahaha! and at the end just for him I played a Moog guitar solo. It took me a lot longer than usual as I really wanted this ‘Stranger’ remix to be special as Michael is a very good and long-time friend and I love his passion for music and this Beauty In Chaos project”
