TOMB RAIDER SUITE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN
[ 17 May 2017 ]
Tomb Raider composer Nathan McCree
announces an official Kickstarter campaign for a studio
recording of The Tomb Raider Suite with one of England's
leading orchestras in England's most famous recording
studios, Abbey Road in London.
"When Nathan McCree wrote
the extraordinary and iconic music for the first three
Tomb Raider games between 1996 and 1998, it was recorded
using the synthesizers available at the time. But for
20 years he dreamt of hearing his music performed by
a full orchestra and choir and with the 20th Anniversary
of the release of Tomb Raider in 2016, the timing was
perfect to realise his dream.
"On Sunday 18th December,
2016, The Tomb Raider Suite received its World Premiere
in London. Performed live by the Royal Philharmonic
Concert Orchestra and the City of London Choir, it received
a standing ovation from the nearly 2,000 fans who attended
the concert. It was an unmitigated success and the final
event in the Tomb Raider 20th Anniversary celebrations.
"Now that Nathan's themes
and cues from the first three games have been fully
orchestrated for a 76-piece orchestra and 20-voice choir,
it is ready to be recorded to the highest standard to
release as an album in the summer of 2017.
"This is a unique opportunity
for all of us Tomb Raider fans to finally own and hear
a world-class recording of the music as Nathan McCree
had always intended it."
