Turrican II - The Orchestral Album update #3 posted - Collector's Box explained

3 likes

Hello friends and fellow fans of Turrican's music!

We're very happy to announce that Turrican II - The Orchestral Album has already seen fantastic support from all over the world. We’re past 73% funded and have over 840 backers after only a week!

We’ve also revealed additional tracks to be featured on the album, so now you can look forward to hearing The Final Fight, Freedom, The Great Bath, Concerto for Lasers and Enemies, The Desert Rocks, The Wall and Traps in all their orchestral beauty!

To make it a success, it would mean a lot if you would consider supporting our new Kickstarter — if you haven’t done so already! It’s the ideal way to celebrate Turrican II’s 25th anniversary, particularly if you’re pledging for the luxurious Collector’s Box. Made from heavy paperboard, coated with chromo paper and high-gloss foil lamination as well as foam padding to protect the contents, this image of an example box gives you an idea of what to expect – although “our” Collector’s Box comes with a CD and a double vinyl instead and will be individually numbered!

If you or someone you know would like to secure one of these gorgeous Collector’s Box Sets (limited to just 1000 individually numbered units), you can find all the information you need on our new Kickstarter campaign page:

Latest updates and album recommendation

Hi everyone,

it's been a while, but I have some cool news;  recently I visited Amiga30 the 30 year celebration of the Amiga in Amsterdam and met with a lot of good old friends. Andrew Barnabas (who helped with our introduction video) and Allister Brimble (who did the great T3 Title remix) were there among many others.

Over there I also finally met the nice people from 010101 music in person, an independent Dutch record label that specializes in game music. They just released their latest brand new album "Insert Disk 2" by legendary Swedish remix legend Instant Remedy - more than seven years in the making, this album focuses on the Commodore Amiga era and features remixes of tracks by Allister Brimble, Barry Leitch, Jochen Hippel, Ron Klaren and myself of course:  included is a Turrican track and a fantastic 17+ minute (!) megamix which ties together several of my compositions. "Insert Disk 2" is available as a gorgeous digipak CD from their website http://www.010101-music.nl/insert-disk-2-order.html or as a digital download via iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play. Be sure to check out this preview on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUSIRBJ7mOw

And as a final news bit, the mini making-of video for the TSA project is still in the works (not forgotten):  I have scheduled a meeting with Co-Producer Jan Zottmann in September where we want to record a mini round-table of us talking about the project, which should tie the different videos together that we already have.

Cheers!
