Queen’s seminal 1975 album and the worldwide hit from it, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, might almost have been tailor-made for surround sound. Now guitarist Brian May and engineer/surround specialist Elliot Scheiner have remixed this masterpiece for what promises to be a genre-defining DVD-Audio release.

If you’re a regular SOS reader, you may recall that we ran a technique series on surround-sound mixing and production. One of the parts of this series (see SOS March 2002, or www.soundonsound.com/sos/Mar02/articles/surround8.asp) featured production and mixing tips from top surround producer Elliot Scheiner, who has been responsible for remixing albums by many big-name artists into 5.1 surround, including REM’s Reveal, The Eagles’ Hotel California, and Sting’s Brand New Day. While SOS were interviewing Elliot for the Surround series, he happened to mention in passing that one of his future 5.1 remixes would involve none other than Queen’s 1975 album A Night At The Opera. Of course, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to find out more about this fascinating project, particularly how Elliot was planning to go about remixing the song that most people consider the centrepiece of the album, the worldwide number 1 hit and all-time rock classic, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
