Allistar Brimble's Kickstarter project got me thinking:

Is there any interest for a freshly produced and updated album of music I created for games? If so, would you fund it on Kickstarter? Just in the feeler stage. I've not yet made a choice.

 

Thanks

Of course I would. I almost always go for a game's soundtrack if there's one available. Not to mention that I gave to the Balance & Ruin (Final Fantasy VI Remix) Kickstarter. I also like your past music, so it should come as a no-brainer for me.

There's a common technique in Hollywood of using a virtual orchestra and then adding a small number of live musicians. So I am considering this as an option. Also might have guest musicians from the Sierra fan base perform along with me.

 

Just thinking out loud

Are there any news on the progress of the album?

 

...this poor fella who came to late to back the dome can't read kickstarter updates. I'd just like to know if everything is progressing well :)
