BluWave Audio, a division of Universal Sound Department, has completed the foreign-language remix for the DVD Region 4 releases for seven of film director Stanley Kubrick’s works: Lolita, Barry Lyndon, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut received new Brazilian, Portuguese and Latin American Spanish dialog tracks. With the exception of the 1962 Lolita, which has a restored mono soundtrack, all of the newly recorded dialog accompanies a remastered 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack.
Manager of audio restoration services Tom Regal and re-recording mixer Jim Fitzpatrick did the remix, and Leon Vitali from the Kubrick estate supervised.
While restoration was being performed in Universal City, Calif., actors were recording the dialog in Mexico City and Buenos Aires. The recordings were converted into digital files and posted to an FTP site and then downloaded to BluWave Audio’s Stage B, a state-of-the-art mixing room dedicated to soundtrack restoration. All the files were then incorporated into the mix. The remixed versions were completed in just 37 days.
