Hello all! I just wanted to share here as well my far-from-perfect but nevertheless tedious little labor of love, until this is finally officially (hopefully) released. Using a sneakily recorded source shared secretly on the net a few years ago, I have touched up and EQ'd it as best I could while also implementing the usable excerpts heard in the recent Tony Visconti radio interview as well as other snippets heard in the intros of the Five Years and Last Five Years documentaries. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Excellent work, Tyler - I found that strangely moving. I hope TV's original gets a proper release some day.

Thank you! It was lovely to hear in parts at the show - but so much more when there’s really time to listen.

This sounds quite a lot like Fritz von Runte's Bowie2001 uber-mix? http://www.bowie2001.com

yeah it does a little. Just remembering back to that. He had a pretty good product there that we all went crazy for. Bad timing though as it was released only weeks before the Toy leak and that overshadowed everything.

I thought it was a really interesting take on the songs - probably better than everything that had gone before it (including the official remixes).

Wonderful
I especially love the bit from 10.44 on.
The stripped down Starman and the Heroes-Watch that man-Absolute beginners mash up.
Really love it

Interesting to actually listen to it rather than experience it in an Ambient way. It reminded me of listening to the Beatles 'Love' album.

you what's funny... Is, I don't remember this at all from the Brooklyn edition of the exhibition. 

However, I do remember there being a little closet-sized room which did have a weird sound collage in it, but it was literally just like... 'studio fussing about' noises & bits of chat - like Bowie saying 'little mouse fart' before Space Oddity, or people tuning their instruments. I stood in there for what seemed like minutes just waiting for music to start (I expected it to be the Tony Visconti mash-up), but there wasn't anything.

Also - at the previous editions of the exhibition... Did they use the bluetooth headphones like in NYC? Like, I can't imagine seeing it, without them.

They really rushed us through the space with the sound-collage. You could only hear it if you stood in front of the stripe suit at the entrance.

I do know what you’re talking about with the other little closet sized room. It was very strange… Just bits and pieces of outtakes. I stood in there too, waiting for something start.
