2012's Visions will be transformed by a Canadian orchestral group.

Grimes' 2012 studio album, Visions, is being adapted into a classical concert series in Canada, called Many Visions: Plumes Deconstructs the Music of Grimes.

A group of 13 composers from the orchestral group Plumes will each take on a Grimes track to reinterpret in a more traditional, Beethoven-esque form. Monica Pearce, a Plumes composer, told NOW Magazinethat the concert would sound "quite different from the album."

"We wanted to see how we could bridge the gap between popular and classical music--we have a suspicion it's smaller than people think," said Luke Nickel, the co-director of Winnipeg's Cluster New Music and Integrated Arts Festival, to MusicWorks. "We want to think about interpretation and rearrangement, not only in terms of musical material but also in terms of the spirit of an artist. That led us to Grimes, whose DIY attitude seems to resonate across genres."
