Engineer Explains Rush 2112 Reissue
Sound engineer Richard Chycki talks about the origins of the project in his online blog. "Let's go back in time a bit to late December 2004," writes Chycki. "I had just finished a 19-hour studio day working with Rush (for the first time) on a Tsunami Relief Charity which was broadcast on CBC in Canada, also late 2004. When I first met with Alex [Lifeson] in early 2005 about the possibility of doing more work together on R30, our first conversation veered off to a coffee laden all out bond-fest about how exciting 2112 would be remixed in 5.1. Our second subject was the mixing of R30 – go figure."
"In a nutshell, this concept has been in stasis for quite some time," he continued, "and it's a pinnacle moment with such a revered artist (and with my gratitude meter completely pinned) that we finally see this project come to light." more on this story
