Wing Commander Music Kickstarter Relaunched - With Extras! Update ID

George Oldziey is back for a third attempt at creating a second album of reorchestrated music from Wing Commander 3, 4 & Prophecy. He's learned some good lessons from the last two trips out, and this time he's significantly retooled the effort with some exciting changes.


For starters, he's framing today's launch as Volume 2, Phase 1. This campaign has a much lower threshold for success at just $15,000, down from the previous $45K, so it's much more achievable. Initially, this will pay for the composition of all tracks on paper so they can be reproduced with high end digital instruments. While George still plans to eventually pursue the funding for a live orchestra in the future, today's more affordable endeavor will still enable fans to hear these enhanced tracks at much higher quality than the original.


And, as an all new super bonus, Mr. Oldziey will also be returning to some of the popular jazz music from the TCS Victory's bar. Several of these fan favorites will be tuned up and recorded live in Austin, Texas. What a treat! Digital downloads of all this start at $20, and there are some cool physical versions and bonuses for Wingnuts who are able to contribute more to help make this a reality. He's already earned $3,000 in 3 hours, so we're looking forward to it being a resounding success. Check it out here!
