A surprise release from BT whose This Binary Universe and Soundtrack from "Monster" are two of the better (IMHO) representations of electronica in surround. This is a "greatest hits" performed live with an orchestra.

Here's the marketing blurb;

In 2014 BT announced his Kickstarter-funded Electronic Opus project with renowned video game composer Tommy Tallarico, a campaign to combine his classic dance tracks with orchestral arrangements for a groundbreaking musical experience.

It was a journey no one expected, one that saw 2.177 fans scramble to raise over $ 250K to bring Electronic Opus to life and record his greatest hits alongside a full symphony in Prague, all culminating into a knockout, live performance during Miami Music Week in March 2015.

For the Electronic Opus release, fourteen beloved BT tracks have been reworked and reimagined into a fantastical exploration of classical arrangements, electronic dance frequencies, and experimental sound editing techniques. Thanks to the dedication and creativity of the production team on TanZ, conductor Eímear Noon, Milk & Honey, Tommy Tallarico, and BT, Electronic Opus signifies a shift in the way dance music and EDM will be perceived from here on out.

In 2016 Auro Technologies and Black Hole teamed up to bring Electronic Opus to yet another level, as Auro's groundbreaking technologies will be utilized to create a 9.1 Auro-3D mix for a high-res Pure Audio Blu Ray release. On top of that, a 5.1 DTS-HD and 2.0 LCPM Stereo mix are also added to the disc.

Tracklist:
1. Flaming June
2. Simply Being Loved
3. Dreaming
4. The Ferris Wheel (Theme to the film 'Monster')
5. Love Comes Again
6. The Emergency
7. Suddenly
8. 1.618
9. A Million Stars
10. Skylarking
11. These Silent Hearts
12. Good Morning Kaia
13. Forget Me
14. Satellite

So, the question we won't have an answer to (until we hear reviews) is whether this will be a typical concert ambient mix or one more reflective of the great mixes on his studio albums.
 
I wish I had some ceiling speakers and the right processor for this release in 3d sound!
 
Sounds great. Hopefully this will be the same as latest Mika Blu Ray; orchestra in rears.
 
SO sold. Seeing they're going 9.1 on this, and seeing BT's track record in surround music, I'm almost certain this will be a fully immersive experience, rather than an audience-in-the-rears live mix. Also, amazing track list. Didn't know he had a hand in Armin van Buuren track "These Silent Hearts".
 
I was already pretty excited about this but after finding out that Darcy Proper is in charge of mastering this disc, I'm now really looking forward to hearing this one. I love her work!
