Video Games Live has launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowd-fund its latest album, "Video Games Live: Level 3."
Video Games Live: Level 3 will be recorded with a 72-piece orchestra, a rock band, and a 60-person choir. They are seeking $250,000 to record arrangements of tracks from over a dozen video games such as Tetris, Portal, Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, Dota 2, Journey, Beyond Good and Evil, and BioShock.
"This time around I wanted to create a video game soundtrack that was really special and doesn't have all of the games and music that people have been recording now for years," said VGL creator Tommy Tallarico in a press statement today. "But the music industry doesn't believe there is a market for an album like this, even after all of the ongoing success of Video Games Live."
You can learn more about the third album on VGL's Facebook page.
As of this writing, the campaign has raised $36,891 over its $250,000 goal from 642 backers with 29 more days to go.
