Default Crowfunding for physical album "WORLD OF SEIJI YOKOYAMA: SERENADE"

This is a small event for fans of the late Seiji Yokoyama! There is currently a crowfunding on Kickstarter for the physical release of a tribute album on Seiji Yokoyama which will be titled "WORLD OF SEIJI YOKOYAMA: SERENADE".

All information is provided in English and French on this link:

The producer and the initiator of the project is the French Gérald Ory, great connoisseur of the musical work of Seiji Yokoyama, who has already released the various albums of Ragen Blue. We can therefore be sure that this is a solid project. The majority of the tracks on the album come from the Saint Seiya universe, but there are also other lesser known compositions from live action films and radio soap operas. Each piece is reinterpreted by the famous Budapest Symphony Orchestra with the upmost respect for the composer.

And good news, the album will come out well because the fundraising objective has already been reached! For the moment, 19980€ committed on a target of 13000€!

The album composed of 15 tracks for the moment will therefore be released on CD version, on vinyl and also on digital from November 2021. You can obviously choose your reward according to the amount of your contribution.
So 23€ for the physical CD album in digipack case, and 45€ for 12 inch 33 rpm LP Vinyl Album record with color disk. For each of these 2 contributions, the digital album and a photo of Seiji Yokoyama with his signature are also provided. Other contributions with more rewards (postcards, posters, shikishi ...) are also offered.

VERY IMPORTANT POINT: Other than distribution to contributors on Kickstarter and limited edition sale for cultural events, there will be no retail sales after the albums are released. IT WILL THEREFORE BE A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO OBTAIN THE PHYSICAL EDITIONS BY PARTICIPING IN THIS CROWFUNDING.

But that's not all: there are several additional objectives; the first at 18000€ has already been reached and will allow contributors to receive a new original artwork by an artist from the Saint Seiya animated series.

Then if the fundraising campaign reaches 25000€, there will be a recording one unreleased 10-minutes long suite for violin and piano by Seiji Yokoyama as a bonus, only for CD version.

And even better: if the funding reaches 48000€, a 2nd CD will be added for the CD version, with 7 additional tracks with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra! (4 tracks from Saint Seiya including the new theme "Seiya and Saga" from Saint Seiya movie Abel including the final cut, "Mayu’s Theme" from Space Pirate Harlock and 2 unreleased symphonic suites by Seiji Yokoyama!)

And finally, if the crowfunding reaches 65000€, 2 titles will be added in more with a male chorus: 1 title from the Symphonic Suite Captain Harlock and 1 title from the TV series Saint Seiya Asgard! Hey guys that too I want them!

So you have 10 days left to support this project and achieve the additional goals, and also to show that you are a fan of Seiji Yokoyama by owning this album in physical media! Remember: no retails sale!
