"Legends: Fantasy Violin", a collection of 11 original tracks, will be released as a CD and digital download worldwide, and the Kickstarter funding will cover recording, mixing, mastering, cover design, manufacturing of the discs, and production of a music video.
I started composing fantasy music in 2011, after performing with Video Game Orchestra at Boston Symphony Hall in April. After 20 years of pursuing a strictly classical music career - in just one week I was completely captivated by soundtracks of Final Fantasy VII, Lord of the Rings, Afrika, Metal Gear Solid... Within months after the concert my heart was so full of melodies, I couldn't help but start writing and playing what I came up with. Two years have gone by, and while classical performances and teaching remain a rewarding career, - I now have a dream of sharing my own music too. - Julia Okrusko, violinist
