An album with arranged music from the original Rayman is now on Kickstarter

…and yes, there is a vinyl option.

The album “Rayman by Rémi” has been underway for some time, but yesterday a site describing the album as well as showing off some mockups was revealed. Alongside that site was the information that a Kickstarter would be launched today.

The arrangement is done by Rémi Gazel who is also the original composer from the game. The arranged album is described as being a “Jazz/Rock/Symphonic/Electro” album.

For this album Rémi have teamed up with some labels who are very much familiar with game music – Black Screen Records and Data Airlines. Black Screen Records will be handling the vinyl release which will be a 2LP with one record on orange and one on blue vinyl. The vinyl tier is priced at €32 (with an early bird tier at €29).

If the €140,000 stretch goal is met a third 12″ record with electro remixes will be added to the release.

The campaign will run from today and until December 16, 2016. If the campaign meets the goal of €50,000 then backer rewards are expected to ship out April, 2017.

You can back the project now on Kickstarter via this link.

A Mass Effect Trilogy 4LP set can now be preordered from BioWare

It was teased in a newsletter from BioWare yesterday and now we have it (or at least the preorder)! The soundtracks to Mass Effects 1, 2, and 3 will be getting a 4LP box set release.

The 4 discs will all be 180g and come on a different color each. Disc one will feature the Mass Effect soundtrack on black vinyl, disc two will feature the Mass Effect 2 soundtrack on white vinyl, disc three will feature the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack on red opaque vinyl, and finally disc four will contain bonus tracks from the games on orange translucent vinyl.
The tracklist hasn’t been posted, but due to the length of the soundtracks it must be assumed that each disc only holds a selection of tracks from the full soundtracks.

There are no words on the label working on this (or if this is all BioWare’s own doing).

The soundtrack is expected to release on November 29th, 2016 and can be preordered now on BioWare’s webstore for $100.
