Great news for Wing Commander music fans! George Oldziey has finished processing the Wing Commander jazz and bar music recorded earlier this year by his awesome Latin jazz band, and the digital version is now available. If you backed his Kickstarter last year, you should have received a message with download links and a password, so log in and check it out! If you didn't back the project but still want to hear an awesome sample, the Victory's famous tune has been released as a teaser here. It's my favorite - I just love it! More goodies are still in the works, which George details below.
Greetings all. I'm terribly sorry for the LONG delay, but I just sent links to the digital media versions of the Wing Commander Bar Music recording to those that contributed at $20 and more to phase 1 of volume 2, so check your inboxes. The CDs and PDFs of the orchestral music will follow soon. The PDF's are all ready, and if you'd like to receive yours (if you pledged at the appropriate level) before the audio CDs of the bar music are ready I'll be happy to send you those.
I'll also be following up with video formats of the PDFs (generated by Sibelius) playing the mockups of the pieces that will be recorded by the orchestra.
Thank you SO much for your patience and wonderful support!

Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone
Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
