Cross Symphonic - A 20th Anniversary Symphonic Tribute
« on: March 04, 2019, 10:44:24 pm »


We'd like to make all aware that the wonderful composer and friend of the Compendium, CptOvaltine, has officially launched his Kickstarer for the Cross Symphonic album. We love this guy and his work and want to fully endorse his vision with this project. Don't know what Cross Symphonic is, though? Take a look!

Check it out here!

A fully licensed 17 track re-imagining of Yasunori Mitsuda’s iconic soundtrack from Chrono Cross as a symphonic film score

Cross Symphonic is the reimagining of Yasunori Mitsuda's iconic soundtrack from Chrono Cross as a fully 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. With your help, Cross Symphonic will be recorded by a 75-piece orchestra with choir in Nashville, Tennessee by some of the best studio musicians in the industry. They’re known for quickly understanding the music and producing a quality recording without wasting any time in the studio. Hiring a professional orchestra that specializes in recording is key to producing a world class product both efficiently and musically.

I just wanted to give a hearty congrats to CptOvaltine on the successful launch of his Kickstarter, with over $25,000 in donations! It is well deserved!
