Mission 5 is Alive!
It sounds (pun intended) like Wing Commander composed George Oldziey is making great progress on a second album. On Wednesday, he announced that he was starting to orchestrate another piece from Wing Commander IV:
Just starting orchestrating another mission piece from #WingCommander 4! It's a mysterioso work! Can't wait to hear it with orchestra!
Then on Saturday, he tweeted that orchestration was for Mission 5 was done:
Another #WingCommander orchestration in the can for the next orchestra recording! Mission 5 from WC4. Will launch the campaign very soon!
Mr. Oldziey composed the music for Wing Commander III, IV and Prophecy. In 2014, he launched a successful crowd funding campaign to record some of his Wing Commander compositions with a live orchestra for the first time. A second campaign sought to orchestrate and record additional music, but it sadly failed to fund. It sounds like that was only a temporary setback, though, and we will follow and support any future attempt!
