"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

STRETCH GOAL: $100,000 – Record “The Northerner” at an esteemed recording facility.  


NEW BACKER TIERS: 3 for $33 You will receive 3 autographed CD copies of the Soule Symphony No. 1, “The Northerner” recording.

Credited with more than 60 commercial works, Jeremy has been awarded the prestigious British Academy Award (BAFTA), in addition to various other awards and nominations. His music has been distributed across more than 70 million copies sold world-wide since 1994, earning Jeremy the distinguishment of being one of the leading composers of our time.

Symphony No. 1, "The Northerner" (Opus 1) will mark Jeremy's first foray into the grand traditions of classical music. This symphonic work is planned to feature live players and singers in addition to the innovative technologies for which Jeremy has become known.

"Kickstarter offers us a wonderful opportunity, and with your help, we can kindle the beginnings of what will be a new way in which to bring life to music in the concert hall and into the lives of others.  I want to thank you in advance, dear friends and supporters, for your kindness, enthusiasm, and belief in what I do.  I look forward to writing this work for you." -Jeremy

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." -Jeremy
