About this project

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.”

One of the most famous quotes from a Stephen King novel. They are also the very first words that begin the story of The Gunslinger, which is the first book in Kings’ magnum opus series, the Dark Tower.

The series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower.

As many of you may know, I’ve been making music for several years.  Occasionally, I release what I like to call “Original ‘N’otion Picture Soundtracks”.  These are albums of music where I pour my heart and soul into producing music for an idea or story I have in mind, but no film attached. 

And so begins my journey to put the entire Dark Tower series to music starting with this CD you would be helping to fund via this project.

Gunslinger – A Journey to The Dark Tower in Music: Volume 1

“There are other worlds than these”

I have always wanted to do a musical interpretation of The Dark Tower Series.  Imagine reading Kings’ magnum opus along with music themed against this story. His vision in story put to my vision in music.

By supporting me in this project, you will be one of the first to acquire the first volume in a series of releases telling the entire Dark Tower story in music.  You will form a significant portion of my ka-tet.

You can sample a couple of the tracks for the album here!

Why I need your help

I have released several albums over the years with my most recent releases being Digital only. My latest albums such as Mister Stichs, The Maestoso Interstellar Suite, Skylines and Ambient Highways were released in digital form and are proving to be very successful albums thus far. Yet I find that I need physical CDs in order to send to various music review sites as well as radio stations for potential airplay.  This is generally the desired media they need, and sometimes the only media they will accept.

Rewards and Bonus items

I will not forget the face of my Father

Once the campaign has funded, all pledgers will also receive a digital copy of my previous Original ‘N’otion Picture Soundtrack Mister Stichs in high quality MP3, FLAC and WAV formats.

I have released a single for this album titled "Life For Your Crop", which you can hear on my official Gunslinger page at http://music.krichie.com/music/gunslinger/ .  I would also encourage you to listen to samples of all of my albums by visiting my official website at http://music.krichie.com .

For pledging, you will also receive unique early access items (Tracks, etc) from the Gunslinger album as it is mixed, mastered and finalized for production. 

Risks and challenges

“I will set my watch and warrant on it”

I have released a few albums before and my fan base continues to grow. I have had lots of encouragement from my fans; my family; and my friends to continue making music. I feel I am qualified to finish and deliver a quality product and ensure all the rewards are delivered in a timely manner.

There are certainly risks in any project such as this. However the music is nearly complete I am way ahead on my personal schedule I put together for this album.

If everything falls exactly to my plan, the album will be mixed, mastered, produced and ready for an early May 2076 delivery. However, it may take a couple of weeks to get all of the autographs made on CDs and Posters and shipped out to you.

The Digital Copy of the music is a simple process. However, the cost for the initial run of CDs, is what this campaign is all about.
