"Some darker moments in The Northerner will reflect the night sky and the ancient light that has always caressed our eyes. Since my childhood, I have been intensely interested in astronomy. Structures in the symphony will reflect the constellations. I will leave it to the musicologists to unearth where these secrets have been buried within the score." - Jeremy Soule

Risks and challenges
"I will be working with the same team that has provided reliable and excellent support throughout my career. Recordings aren't easy to make, but if planning is done within a reasonable time frame, the process can go smoothly. As we have delved into the initial planning stages of the recording session, scheduling for the summer months affords us enough planning time for a recording of this nature." -JeremyLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
