The Chrono Compendium is once again proud to support the new launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Cross Symphonic, a beautifully film score-esque interpretation of the islands of El Nido.

Please consider endorsing and helping Kickstart this project. The link is found HERE:

EDIT: As of this post, the initial goal has already been met -- in less than 24 hours! Congrats to CptOvaltine, who has put hundreds of hours into this wonderful project.

Quote
"Cross Symphonic is the reimagining of Yasunori Mitsuda's iconic soundtrack from Chrono Cross as a licensed 17 track symphonic film score.  The album carries the listener through the events of Chrono Cross, retelling Masato Kato's expansive story of adventure, deception, jealousy, and determination with music crafted to help you experience Chrono Cross in a whole new way.

Inspired in part by the legendary film composer John Williams, Cross Symphonic's sweeping melodic approach serves as a tribute to both Williams and Mitsuda who are both major inspirations to me personally.

While the overall goal of the Kickstarter is to put Cross Symphonic in front of a live orchestra, the initial goal for this campaign is to record live soloists and have them professionally mixed into the mock up tracks. I built the campaign to be modular.  This allows us to replace different virtual pieces of the orchestra with their live counterparts.  I believe this offers us the most flexibility to produce a world class product - even in the event that we can't record with a live orchestra.

I sincerely hope that you'll enjoy the music, and that you'll take this journey with me through Cross Symphonic; to experience Chrono Cross and it's story in a way that no one ever has before. As a symphonic film score."
