|Christopher Tin can now have another claim to fame: the most funded classical music project on Kickstarter|
Earlier this month, I mentioned how Christopher Tin had launched a Kickstarter project to raise funds for a new album called "To Shiver the Sky". The new album is to Sid Meier's Civilization VI what "Calling All Dawns" was for Sid Meier's Civilization IV; Tin composed the main theme "Baba Yetu" (which is the first piece of music intended for a video game to win a Grammy) for Civ IV and expanded upon that theme in the album "Calling All Dawns". He wants to do the same with his theme for Civ VI "Sogni di Volare" and "To Shiver the Sky" is the album that will expand upon that theme.
The project got off to a great start and was successfully funded after 3 days, but now the project has become the highest funded classical music Kickstarter project ever, surpassing a project called "Let's Save Classical Music (And Our Social Lives)!" (which raised $140,005 USD). Tin's project has raised $142,964 USD (or $182,189 AUD) so far and the funding campaign isn't over yet.
Tin has promised more stretch goals which includes more music and even vinyl records if the $200,000 stretch goal is reached.
