Symphony inspired by Skyrim: Kickstarter for Fantasy Symphony No. 1 "Dragonborn" Album Release

Dear friends,

I am so proud and happy to have prepared a musical experience that I would love to share with you! During the past 10 months, I have been writing a fantasy symphony, combining the traditional musical language and techniques with fantasy elements, themes, and sounds. The inspiration for this work came from Skyrim, video game world of fantasy with incredible gaming aesthetics and profound mythology. The power and missions of the main character, Dragonborn, became my inspiration for this work, Symphony No.1 in D minor "Dragonborn". The symphony is in 4 movements, each featuring different atmosphere and characters, that are united through motives, rhythms, and themes to create a symphonic portrait of Dragonborn and the external and internal realities of being immersed in the world of fantasy.



I started a Kickstarter project to record, produce, and release the symphony in December - as a CD and digital download featuring live and synthetic instruments. This is the first composition of such complexity and scale I have ever written, and your support means the world to me. Please visit the project at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/okrusko/fantasy-symphony-no1-dragonborn-album-release to learn more, and THANK YOU so much for your enthusiasm, help, advice, and inspiration.

Thank you!

Dear friends,

Dear friends,

I wanted to thank you for welcoming the symphony inspired by Skyrim, and to invite you to join the Kickstarter project to release this new work, Symphony No.1 in D minor, "Dragonborn" - you could visit the project at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/okrusko/fantasy-symphony-no1-dragonborn-album-release

For those of you who would like to hear some of the musical sketches, I have created a Soundcloud fragment which you could listen to, download, and share if you would like! This fragment is taken from the 1st Movement of the symphony, and it shows some of the thematic elements and atmospheres of the second subject group within the movement.

Julia

Hey Julia, nice to see your

Hey Julia, nice to see your project inspired by Skyrim and I hope your time at Berklee? is going well. Tesrenewal has a policy about not advertising commercial projects and as much as this is a great project, we prefer if people don't use the site as a promo tool and post multiple times as it clutters of the active thread feed. I'm locking the thread as per rule #4 of our site rules, but I wish you the best of luck. The community has seen your project and those who are inspired to support will have had ample exposure. Cheers.
