I'm writing this from the Middle East! I was in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) yesterday and I'm currently in the country of Qatar (in the city of Doha). We're putting on a big show with the National Symphony in a few days before heading over to Shanghai, China to perform a Dota 2 only setlist to over 25,000 people at the Dota 2 Championships!
We are SO CLOSE from achieving funding for LEVEL 5! This is a GREAT time and opportunity where I can really use your help! When it gets this close... we usually have a nice rush of people who pledge in hopes that they will be the ones to say they put it over the top to get funded! Can you help? Could you please SHARE our project on Social Media and let everyone know that the project is at 99%! We currently have over 2,100 backers. If I could get everyone to post about the project I'm CERTAIN that not only will we get funded early... BUT we will most certainly start hitting some of those Stretch Goals!
In regards to Stretch Goals... We have been getting an overwhelming response to PLEASE include the game Undertale as one of the Stretch Goals. So I added it! Once the project is over, I will do an online poll for all of the LEVEL 5 backers. That will be how we decide which track (or tracks!) make it on the album as Stretch Goals. There are currently 5 possibilities... Xeno series, Earthbound/Mother, Katamari Damacy, Okami and now Undertale. How AMAZING an album would it be if we could include ALL of them! It's VERY possible at this point... but only with your help! Please blast this project all over social media and e-mail all of your gaming friends.
When I initially did the LEVEL 5 Project video it was around 40 minutes long! (Whoopsie!) I ended up cutting it down to around 12 minutes... but I've uploaded the original extended version if anyone is interested. In goes into a lot more depth and shows a lot more of the backstage and traveling stuff... and best of all... an extended version of Malukah's The Dragonborn Comes performance LIVE in front of thousands of people in her home country of Mexico!! You can check it out HERE:
I also recently posted a 9 minute video during our rehearsals in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last week. I was having a little fun (i.e. annoying) the orchestra and I even put the camera into the tuba at just the right moment! :) If interested, you can see that video here:
Thanks for reading! The next update I'll send will be the FUNDED one! So hope to be writing you very soon! :)
