2001 v. SPZ in 5.1 surround sound

We're just now preparing to finalize and made public the 5.1 surround sound mix of our film/sync project '2001: A Spiritualized Odyssey'. After a few private screenings for friends and fans, it's coming out better than we'd hoped. Impovements to the new edition include corrected and clearer subtitles, better video quality and normalized volume levels as well as the 2.0 stereo mix in addition to the new 5.1 mix. One year later, version 1.0 was a tremendous success (30,000 downloads and 20,000 YouTube views), but we feel that we've done something REALLY special with the 5.1 surround sound mix.

While you will be able to download a DVD .ISO of the trailer in 5.1 for you to burn on your own and get a taste of the film, the new full version of the film will NOT be available for download. Copies will only be available by special request from independent and locally owned record shops worldwide for the cost of discs and shipping, and you are NOT allowed to sell them, ONLY to give them away promotionally. The reason for that being that the .ISO files are MASSIVE (12GB?).

So, if you own or work at a record shop and wish to recieve a copy for yourself and a few to give away to customers as promos, drop us a line at Promotional items will be available as well, such as posters for you to print off and hang in your store which we will e-mail to you in PDF form as well as making them publicly available (download links to be posted later).

Thank you all for your support, your patience and your kind words. Our new album is still in the works, so stay tuned.
