I can't tell how much he's asking for looking at the page. But it's a cool idea, and I can see this being really good. I always wished modern musicians would approach orchestral symphonies instead of just making arrangements of their own songs.
Best of luck to him, I like this dude a lot.
Digging: Julien Baker - Turn Out The Lights
Wait. Classical music endeavors in the news? On Sputnikmusic? Wat is happening?
he's a total bro and, if called upon, i would def pledge with him.
i have a feeling that everyone on sputnik will like this more than i will
much like all of Casey's work post-TREOS
also apparently all symphonic composers are beethoven now
I still like BTHATS most of all his projects and I doubt he'll ever top it. But still, excited for this.
Digging: The Used - The Canyon
first time pledging for anything
I'm a classical music enthusiast, and I think this is a massive surprise.
Migrant sucked and everything, but if he pulls this off, I will be majorly impressed.
I saw the title and assumed he went deaf
"With 5 full length records, including 36-song rock opera “The Color Spectrum” and most recently “Migrant” under my belt as The Dear Hunter, I am setting out on my next endeavor. To write and record a Symphony with a full orchestra is a MAJOR undertaking, and comes with a tremendous financial commitment. The Symphony will consist of 4 movements and will be recorded by the BRNO Orchestra in the Czech Republic this November."
this is retarded
pretty excited, haven't really disliked anything Casey has done. will probably pledge once i have some funds.
This guy has so much potential.
I saw the title and assumed he turned into a St. Bernard
I wrote the title and assumed he contracted syphilis
Wow definitely going to check this out. This sounds like it could be amazing.
He needs to fucking finish what he started already
too many whiners, let the guy do what he wants.
I would prefer it if he'd just join chiodos instead
Some people have to realize that conceptual music isn't always something you can just 'finish' whenever you have the time for it. It's a state of mind kind of thing, and he obviously has something else on his mind right now.
Fuck you, Coheed and Cambria finished that shit. I hate stories with no ending.
it's easier than you think dummy
I'm working on it ok *:'( I'm still finishing my black metal/pop punk concept album about my ex girlfriend
aww thanks man
Migrant was underwhelming but not terrible. Give it another try, guy. Also, this is interesting.
Act IV would be more interesting
Casey your ego is showing
I like Casey and all, but this sort of reeks of trying to have your cake and eat it too.
Like we get it dude, you're talented, but c'mon, does this REALLY need to happen?
are you guys kidding here? a dude wants to write a symphony and you heckle the man for it?
here's hoping those who think that never progress in their lives since that's what you're essentially wishing on this guy here.
this is my ghetto symphony
