The Sedona International Film Festival partners with award-winning surround sound composer and producer Koz Mraz for “Dark Side of the Room” on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Everyone has experienced 5.1 surround in movie theaters, but hearing Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” remixed specifically for six speakers is simply astounding. Be it popular, classical or electronic music, listeners are immersed in ever-evolving sonic landscapes that can only be experienced in a theater.
“Dark Side of the Room” is a no-visuals sonic experience, reminiscent of lost art of listening to music in the dark with the most amazing surround sound 5.1 music this side of the solar system. Come prepared to be blown away.
This special experience is presented by Multi-Award-Winning Surround Sound composer/producer Koz Mraz (The Discus Award, Surround Category 2001, Communicator Surround Award 2002, Aurora Surround Award Surround & Grammy nominee 2005)
Mraz released three albums on surround sound label DTS (Digital Theater Systems) and toured with Alan Parsons (Engineer on Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon). Alan Parsons not only mixed Dark Side of the Moon in stereo, he also mixed a surround sound version.
