Musopen Kickstarter #2

I'm very excited to announce Musopen's 2nd Kickstarter! It's hard to believe that our first project was way back in Sep 2010! 

We've spent a lot of time thinking about what to do next, and we've chosen something very ambitious and exciting. 
We would like your help to free the life's work of Frédéric Chopin.

We would love your support, and help spreading the word, so we can make this project a reality.

      Very cool! Thank you!

      Hey Dan,

      Yes apologies, the textbook has undergone a re-write after seeding it out to some professors. Here is a link to the current progress for our second pass:

      As for the benefactors, we have the list live here:
      But we are updating it, and need to link to it from the site which we will do early next week.

      Aaron, can you please provide an update on the Musopen music theory textbook? 54 backers were promised this as a reward. I don't see any information about it in Kickstarter updates or on the website, and I see a comment from you on Apr 3, 2012 about upcoming news but I don't recall seeing any more about it.

      Also, I don't see the "list of benefactors" on the website, also mentioned in the reward descriptions. I don't care about this one so much, I just noticed that I couldn't find it.
