The Turrican Soundtrack Anthology project surpasses 100k !!!
Everyone, this is absolutely incredible... this is history in the making! The Turrican Soundtrack Anthology project has reached and surpassed $100.000 in funding. I don't think any music artist could ask for better fans and supporters!
This means that the album and box set can be made exactly as I envisioned it; a complete set of my music from the Turrican Series, arranged and recorded with modern studio sounds and even bonus versions with live orchestra. I had a feeling that this could be made possible, but I also had some doubts and the descision to go for it wasn't easy. In the end you all came through and made this an amazing experience!
I also have great news about the art: Halil Ural is now fully on board and will design a brand new poster and box set sleeve art. But even more incredible, we were also able to get an additional deal with the Kandemiroglu brothers (Celal and Ogan), who made most of the cover art for the classic Turrican games. They will create another poster, which will also serve as the cover for the CD box itself.
Finally, as a last special item, we would like to create a mechanical music box in a hand-crafted wooden case, that will play "The Great Bath". This will be quite expensive to make, but it could be the ultimate collectible item of Turrican music. In fact, there will be only a maximum of 16 made (to honor the 16 bit era) and 6 are already reserved for members of the team (who will pay themselves for them), so that leaves 10 for potential backers. We are adding this item to the $1500 pledge level for an additional perk. To get an idea of how this could look like, here's a link to a video for a similar music box playing music from Final Fantasy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgcdEk3LWzM
I can't wait to get started with the music production and one of the first things is the track that everyone including and above the $5 pledge level will get before the funding campaign ends on June 3rd.
More news and updates about the project are coming soon when I return to the US.
