CHRIS VRENNA AND U2
Grammy-winning producer/engineer Chris Vrenna (NIN, Smashing Pumpkins) was tapped by U2 to remix and re-cut the song “Elevation” for the Tomb Raider soundtrack. The band took a break from touring last summer and flew out to Enterprise Studios in Burbank, Calif. Engineer Paul Leary oversaw the tracking.
“I started some of the stuff at home,” Vrenna explained, “and then they flew in, and we re-cut all of the instruments in Pro Tools. I worked on the mix the following day, and they came in that night to give their feedback. It worked out really well.”
Vrenna, who records under the name Tweaker, also released his long-awaited debut album The Attraction to All Things Uncertain last September on Six Degrees Records.
