STUDIO VOODOO SURROUND SOUND DVD-AUDIO contains 9 songs, interviews, Binaural stereo mix, Dolby Stereo mix, 6.1 DTS-ES mix, 5.1 DVD-Audio mix. The intoxicating mix of music and technology that is Studio Voodoo is as much about the symbiotic partnership of founders Koz Mraz and Ted Price as it is about the myriad elements that make up Voodoo's visionary sonic and sensory cocktail. The pair met in a Los Angeles recording studio in 1985 where Koz was engineering a session for a now long-defunct band of Ted's. They clicked right away, and their ongoing artistic duet has since generated the award-winning DVD-Audio album Studio Voodoo, as well as a second surround album, Club Voodoo, featuring bold club remixes of their favorite tracks as well four new dance-flavored cuts. Plans are underway for an ongoing series of live 'Club Voodoo' happenings, a full-scale theatrical production entitled Globalingua, and a forthcoming album of all new original material. Both veteran travelers, the team's extensive forays -individually and together-- to Europe, China, and Central America have also lent heavily to Studio Voodoo's exotic world view. Throughout, the sounds arising from Studio Voodoo's convergence of man and state-of-the-art machine--as guided by Mraz's and Price's fruitful creative alchemy-is magic indeed. While Koz often veers towards being the group's uber-producer, and Ted it's rhythm-master, 'nothing happens that isn't completely collaborative,' they insist, with each composing, conceptualizing and crafting in equal measure. The partners profess that artistically, they 'finish each other's sentences,' and their intuitive duet is vividly realized on Studio Voodoo, the self-titled debut album that came out in 2001 on DTS Entertainment, the label component of multi-channel audio pioneer DTS. The disc is historic in that it was DTS's first-ever DVD-Audio release-and the first entire album conceived for and fully recorded in DTS's cutting-edge 6.1 Extended Surround Sound. Studio Voodoo's spatial and aural bravura lends itself perfectly to the multi-dimensional format, and also won the first DVD-Audio award when it was named 'Best DVD Audio Disc' at the 4th Annual DVD Discus Awards and an Award of Excellence for 'DVD Audio Music' at the 2001 DVD Awards. Marrying primal beats and instincts with envelope-pushing technology, the album conjures up a universal and unifying vibe that Mraz calls music's 'ancient future.' So far, Mraz and Price have managed to perpetuate their dream for almost two decades. Studio Voodoo was born when they decided to 'First and foremost, do something just for us,' remembers Mraz. They began with 'Rain' in the late '80s, when they did pioneering work with sampling and the use of musical loops. A later version of the track won 6th place a 1995 Keyboard Magazine contest out of a field of more than 800 entries, inspiring Ted and Koz to forge ahead. Their next creation was 'This Beat Is Voodoo,' followed by 'Fire,' first recorded at Ted's house in San Diego. Shortly after, Koz, who was doing some work at L.A.'s Westlake Audio, attended an early seminar on surround sound, which was an epiphany to him, as the technology offered the ideal format for Studio Voodoo's environmental mixes. Mraz and Price came up with a surround mix of 'Fire'-at Glendale's Front Page, the first studio in the L.A. area equipped to do so-and sent it to DTS's highly regarded Technical Director and production supervisor, Jeff Levison. DTS loved it and invited Ted and Gary to make a full-length 6.1 surround sound disc-the company's first ever--and the rest is Studio Voodoo history. And Studio Voodoo is history in the making... Today, in the Long Beach-based 'Voodoo Mansion,' Koz Mraz and Ted Price have assembled two fully-loaded surround sound production studios in which they realize their audio visions, wielding magic with new technology and newer ideas while creating the ground-breaking musical and sensory experiences that are Studio Voodoo.
