Great news: together with our Paypal backers, we have now already surpassed the 60k stretch goal (we’re now actually at $60654) and that means that we will create additional music and fill up the album to the brim! :) 

With this milestone we are announcing our next exciting stretch goals:

At 64k (in honor of the Commodore C64 computer) we will give every backer an exclusive download of a special stereo double SID recording of the original Shades C64 piece (recording courtesy of our friend 'Sid Spieler') which was never released before! See a photo of the crazy hardware here (2 SID chips side by side on a special circuit board):

And as a bonus we will also include the arranged Shades recordings from my first album and the Soundfactory.

At 66k (because we were funded in just 66 minutes) we will produce a video of a roundtable discussion / interview with the whole team during gamescom 2015 about the production of “The Piano Collection” and the biographical Score Book.

And at 70k we will create an additional Bandcamp download album with the original arrangements (original sound version recordings of the C64, Amiga and others) of all the compositions that are featured on “The Piano Collection”. This album will be a free download exclusive for backers ($19 reward level and higher) and Paypal supporters of the project.

Piano Dinner update:

We listened to your questions and requests and everyone who has reserved (or will reserve) the Piano Dinner for $109 can bring one extra guest (spouse, friend etc.) for a reduced price of an additional $55 (total would be $164 for 2 people / or about 132 Euros).

We will also have another big surprise for all our backers on Sunday during our weekly Twitch live show (Sunday 21:00 CET / 12pm PST). And we will of course unlock the next Top Ten package with the number [005] during the show! So don’t miss it and tune in:

      Sorry I can not edit comments, but I meant vinyl copy of sid recordings from that amazing stereo sid setup perhaps!

      Could a stretch goal be a vinyl copy of some of your songs? 2 Vinyl? I'm in deep for that idea.

      Two seats booked, thanks for the generous discount. (Wife is happy now, and so is the backer…)
