Very cool stuff here, and in case you didn’t know, ‘Viva Elvis by Cirque du Soleil‘ is playing at the Aria in Vegas – show is a tribute to the King, featuring all his music (and original vocals) reimagined.

When working on the music for ‘Viva Elvis,’ producer/arranger Erich van Tourneau — aided by Hugo Bombardier, Assistant Producer and Assistant Arranger — spent more than 3,000 hours reviewing countless albums, films, concert recordings, interviews and home recordings of Elvis. More than 17,000 samples of Elvis’ songs — the raw material for the show — were made during the process.
