Wing Commander composer George Oldziey has published another status update regarding his crowd-funded live album project. The actual orchestration work has wrapped, and he's busy preparing the final materials for performance in Bratislava at the end of this month. This latest update also includes the track list for the 30-minute orchestra and choir session. His selection includes music from Wing 3, Wing 4 and Prophecy, all of which were scored for Origin by George. Check it out! And in case you missed it, the Austin Civic Orchestra did a live performance of the Wing Commander Suite last week.
Greetings all! Just wanted to give you a quick update. I've finished all the orchestrations and am in the process of preparing the scores, parts and session files for the recording in Bratislava at the end of this month. All is going very smoothly!
I also wanted to give you a final list of all the cues (30 minutes) that will be recorded with the orchestra and choir. We will have the Wing Commander Suite, which has already been performed live and features music from the intros of both Wing Commander 3 AND 4. From WC 4 we have the Winning Endgame, Borderworlds mission, Mission 4 (not sure what that's from but you'll recognize the music) and a battle medley. From WC3 we have the Strike and Behemoth mission music. From WC Prophecy will be Mission to Alien Space and Intense Combat.
I think this features a nice cross section from all three games on which I worked. Plus, this does not include the additional 15 minutes of music that I'll be re-arranging using my orchestral samples in my studio. Those are yet to be determined, but I've already created a great template to get started with those.
I'm REALLY excited that this is actually going to happen, and am so thrilled to have such dedicated WC fans out there supporting this wonderful endeavor. Without you it would not be happening.
All the best,
