The critically-acclaimed artists Blue Man Group have once again crossed artistic and technical boundaries with the release of ‘The Complex DVD-Audio edition, which became available on September 14th from DTS Entertainment.
Blue Man Group founders Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton and Chris Wink recorded and released the original ‘The Complex’ CD in 2003. Guest collaborators on ‘The Complex’ DVD-A include some of the most popular names in pop, rock, hip-hop, and electronic music: Dave Matthews, Gavin Rossdale, Dan the Automator, Tracy Bonham, Esthero, Rob Swift, among others. ‘The Complex’ DVD-A has been re-mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, making this the first time some of the artists can be heard in the advanced audio formats.
This 5.1 Surround Sound and DTS technology allow fans of Blue Man Group and experimental music a full multi-channel audio experience of this original music. The DVD-A offers still images from Blue Man Group’s rock concert experience, The Complex Rock Tour.
“We’re proud of the fact that we use state of the art technology in our musical endeavours, as well as in our theatrical productions,” said Mr. Stanton. “DVD-Audio is the ideal format for our audiences to experience our music.”
Mr. Wink continued, “DVD-Audio is being embraced more and more by music lovers, and for us, producing ‘The Complex’ DVD-A was both technologically and creatively satisfying.”
Disc features include:
- Exclusive surround re-mixes of all 14 tracks, DVD-Audio surround sound and stereo, DTS 96/24 surround and stereo for DVD-Video players, and DVD-Audio surround sound and stereo for DVD-Audio players
