Guild Wars 2 Composer Soule Kickstarting Symphony Project

Here’s an interesting Kickstarter wrinkle for you. Instead of funding the usual indie sandbox game, how would you feel about contributing to the first symphonic work from legendary game music maestro Jeremy Soule?

Soule is the prolific composer behind more than 60 commercial scores including memorable soundtracks for Guild Wars 2, World of Warcraft’s Mists of Pandaria expansion, the Elder Scrolls series, and BioWare classics like Neverwinter Nights, Baldur’s Gate, and Knights of the Old Republic.

Soule’s next project is called Symphony No. 1 The Northerner (Opus 1), and according to the Kickstarter page, it marks his “first foray into the grand traditions of classical music. This symphonic work is planned to feature live players and singers in addition to the innovative technologies for which Jeremy has become known.” Soule’s project currently sits at about 75 percent of its $10,000 goal with 30 days to go.
