The Village Hosts Movie Soundtrack Sessions

Mirrors at The VillageWest Los Angeles, CA (July 7, 2008) — Movies starring Will Smith have come to dominate the Fourth of July holiday weekend and this year was no exception, with “Hancock” attracting over $100 million in U.S. box office receipts. The film’s soundtrack was mixed on the vintage Neve console in Studio A at The Village Recorder in West Los Angeles. Composer John Powell produced the sessions with engineer Hugo Nicolson and second engineer Ghian Wright.

The Village has been involved with numerous hit films this year. Composer Aaron Zigman produced sessions for “Sex and the City” in Studios A and B — which was recently outfitted with The Village’s second Neve 88R console — with engineer Tommy Vicari and second engineer Chris Owens.

The 5.1 soundtrack for the remake of “The Hulk” was mixed in Studio B with Brad Haenel engineering, assisted by second engineer Vanessa Parr.

Tracking sessions for the Pixar Animation feature “Wall-E” were held in Studio D, which features a Neve 88R console, with renowned composer Thomas Newman producing and Tommy Vicari engineering. Chris Owens and Ryan Peterson were second engineers on the project.

Composer Javier Navarette also selected Studio D for the 5.1 mix of his soundtrack for “Mirrors,” which is due for release in August. Joel Iwataki engineered the sessions with second engineer Shinnosuke Miyazawa. Pictured are (l-r) Iwataki, Navarette, and music editor Michael Tryan.
