George Oldziey's campaign to create a high fidelity remaster of his famous Wing Commander music has reached another big milestone! The digital reorchestrations that he has been working on to fill out the full album are now complete, and a download link has been sent out to fans who backed the project. If you didn't receive it, log in to Kickstarter to access the files. They include seven more tracks that very nicely complement the ten recordings that were performed by a live orchestra last year. This supplemental package includes lots of great foundational music that players of WC3&4 should readily identify with. They're a joy to listen to! George has provided the full scoop below. He's now working on getting the physical album discs into contributor's hands by the end of the year. Fans have had to wait a bit to get this far, but the audio goodness is worth it!
Greetings my VERY patient friends!If you haven't yet seen the documentary that chronicles the effort to get this music recorded, be sure to check it out below!
I hope you all enjoy the sample based bonus tracks that I'd promised you all. They obviously don't have the amazing breadth and, as conductor Allan Wilson so poignantly said in his interview, "soul and spirit" of music recorded with a real orchestra, I think they they are light years ahead of the original versions of 20 years ago!
Next step is to finish off the physical CD, which I promise to have shipped out to the appropriate tier levels by the holidays, along with the other bonus prizes that were bid upon.
Again, thank you to all of you for your amazing support! Shall we think about volume 2 for next year? :)
