TOMB RAIDER SUITE KICKSTARTER
[ 17 May 2017 ]
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.
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.
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.
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
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."
