Joe Satriani Concert Film, Satchurated: Live in Montreal, First in World to Be Recorded in 3D and Dolby Surround 7.1, Arrives in Theaters March 1

World-famous guitarist Joe Satriani is featured in Satchurated: Live in Montreal, the concert movie from award-winning directors and producers Pierre and François Lamoureux, coming to select theaters nationwide on March 1, 2012. Satchurated is the first concert film ever to be released in 3D and Dolby® Surround 7.1.

The 3D Blu‑ray™ release scheduled for April will be encoded in Dolby TrueHD, delivering a studio master quality 7.1-channel surround sound experience to Satriani fans’ home theaters.

“We carefully selected and placed microphones within the Metropolis in Montreal, and the use of the 7.1 surround palette enabled us to capture the entire essence of the concert event from the sound of the onstage instruments to the presence and dynamics of the concert hall,” said director and producer Pierre Lamoureux. “The result is a dramatic 7.1 experience that translates beautifully for audiences looking to experience the film in Dolby Surround 7.1 at the movies or in Dolby TrueHD lossless 7.1 surround sound at home.”

Dolby plays a critical role in ensuring that the artistic intent of the audio mix is maintained through the entertainment ecosystem, from the concert stage to the movie theater and into the home theater. The soundtrack makes use of the improved panning, sound localization, and enhanced definition provided by Dolby Surround 7.1’s eight channels and four surround zones to deliver an unforgettable experience. Moviegoers will also get to experience Satchurated: Live in Montreal in select Dolby 3D technology-enabled theaters.

For fans who want to bring the concert experience into their living room, the Blu-ray release featuring Dolby TrueHD will providea stunning lossless multichannel audio soundtrack. Dolby TrueHD delivers powerful sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the original studio master, unlocking the full entertainment value of Blu-ray Disc and other HD media.
Satchurated was filmed live on the Wormhole Tour in support of Satriani’s new album, Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards,at the Metropolis in Montreal, Canada, on December 12, 2010. Eight cameras captured the sold-out concert in both 2D and 3D.

Satriani is among the few artists in history to release a 3D concert film. He is a leading force in rock music, having been voted the No. 6 All-Time Best Guitarist by Guitarist Magazine (UK) and Best Guitarist of the Year three times by Guitar World Magazine. In his career, Satriani has sold more than 10 million copies of his studio and live recordings worldwide, has been nominated for 15 Grammy Awards®, and has sold more than 4 million concert tickets.
