Wing Commander composer George Oldziey has posted a really cool video update that talks about the inspiration for the TCS Victory's bar music that will be featured in his new Wing Commander music album. A surprising amount of skill and improvisation were required, and there's some interesting linkage to non-WC music as well.
Additionally, there's some very exciting news on the actual crowdfunding front. An anonymous fan has committed to donate matching funds up to $1,000 for all pledges between now and Friday! So if you've been waiting, now's your chance to help make the new album a success! The project has hit $10,000, so there's less than $5,000 to go to make it a reality, but that amount has to be pledged soon. You can add your contribution and order your copy here.
Wonderful news! A VERY generous Wing Commander fan (who prefers to remain anonymous) has offered to match all pledges DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR up to a total of $1000 between now and 12 noon CDT this Friday, August 18th! That means each dollar you pledge between now and then will be doubled until the pledges reach $1000 during that time span. This is a GREAT opportunity to help kickstart (no pun intended) our campaign again, and will really help to position us as we head into the final week.
SO, please get the word out to all your friends! And if you have already pledged and have the means to contribute more your money will go twice as far!
