"Suikoden II" New Orchestral CD Crowd-funding reaches its stretch goal for a full album
The re-launched Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign for a new orchestral CD recording featuring music from "Suikoden II" had reached its first stretch goal at US$27,500 for a full album.
"Suikoden II" is a role-playing video published by Konami for the PlayStation system in 1998. The original music was based on orchestral and ethnic sounds that reflected the many cultures and feelings that permeated the story.
The funding goal of the campaign was US$15,000 in an all-or-nothing format, and the campaign sets two stretch goals at $27,500, and at $40,000 for more music by September 20, 2018.
VGM Classics has invited the award-wining composer/conductor Kentaro Sato to be its music director to oversee and direct the recording. Mr. Sato is the orchestral and choral mastermind behind such video game titles as the "DISSIDIA Final Fantasy" series. The prospective orchestra for the project is the Budapest Symphony Orchestra (Budapest, Hungary). The recording session is scheduled in January 2019.
VGM Classics expects that its projects not only will fulfill the wishes of game music lovers, but also will contribute to the advancement of musical art and culture at large.
