As we mentioned in the previous update, we have a gift for all our backers. From the desk of Austin Wintory:
For all those interested, I am happy to share that we will be streaming part of our big, long-in-progress recording session for THE BANNER SAGA! The recording process for this game has already been very elaborate, and next week takes a huge leap forward when I go to Dallas, Texas to collaborate with a truly magnificent ensemble: the Dallas Wind Symphony! This Grammy-nominated ensemble, led by the incredible conductor Jerry Junkin with whom I’ll be tag teaming, will be the subject of a forthcoming in-depth Kickstarter music update. But in the meantime, here are the details for the stream:
Tuesday, July 30th at 4:30pm Central Time.
I have just set up a Twitch account: http://www.twitch.tv/awintory/profile
In theory if you can’t attend live you can see the archive. We’re working very hard to make sure this is a high-quality stream, both visually and aurally. The recordings will be going until 5pm, so you will be tuning in to the last half hour of a full day’s worth. At that point I will send the musicians home, and come to the camera for a live chat. Joining me will be our dear friends from Stoic Studio, Alex Thomas, Arnie Jorgensen and John Watson, along with the DWS’ conductor Jerry Junkin. We’ll have about 20 or so minutes to chat. Remember that during the first half you will be watching a recording session, not a concert, so it might be interesting to see just how different those two can be from each other!
I will also be answering questions about the score to BANNER SAGA in my upcoming Kickstarter update, so feel free to leave your questions here, in the comments, or on the Stoic forum here: http://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?1807-Austin-Wintory-will-be-taking-music-questions-in-this-thread
