Classic Rush Album Going 5.1 Surround Sound

One of Rush's most loved albums is getting a sonic make-over. No, we're not talking about the band's announced plans to remix "Vapor Trails," we have to go back 30 years to the 1981 classic "Moving Pictures" which is getting the 5.1 surround sound remix treatment from producer/engineer Richard Chycki.

Chycki confirmed the news on his website: Ok, so the word is out. I've been in the studio for last month remixing the original Moving Pictures CD in 5.1 surround. I finished tweaks on 'Red Barchetta' yesterday. It really was an amazing experience to spread the original tracks of such a classic CD into the 3D word of surround. (The car speeds off, goes behind and banks a sharp right in rear BTW). The listening experience is drastically enveloping and coupled with songs and performances that epitomize this band, it's definitely a great time to re-discover Rush.

After discussion with the band, the goal here was to pay serious homage to the production of the era so a considerable amount of time was spent researching and working through effects etc. that matched the original but would fare well in the 5.1 world. And of course, placement was also a critical issue. I'm pleased with the results and Alex Lifeson was pretty blown away when he came in to listen to the finals. Richard's site
