LeHah sent us this announcement about an interesting Wing Commander fan project he's decided to undertake...
Yeah, I know, I never delivered on the Wing Commander: End Run goods, but someone beat me too it when I was 2/3rds done and THEY did as good of a job.
However, I've begun writing music on my computer using various programs like acidburn and whatnot. I've begun early writing on a peice of music (or score) to the well-known scene from FLEET ACTION, where Ian St. John seeks out and destroys the Kilrathi Stealth near Hellhole. I'm going back to make my scoring notes and hopefully will have it posted.
I orignally wanted to do an alternate score to the WC movie, but lets not bite off more than I can chew...
