Steve Reich's "2x5" is a score for double rock ensemble -- four guitars, two pianos, two electric basses and two drum kits. Here, Bang on a Can's 2009 recording of the piece is reworked by the three winners of a remix competition. Dominique Leone, a music journalist and psychedelic disco producer, turns in a flailing, double-time tune worthy of Battles, while the Ukrainian producer Vakula goes for a deep, moody, house-music throb, somewhere between "Strings of Life" and "Music for 18 Musicians." Finally, David Minnick grafts the piece onto Reich's 1967 "Piano Phase."
