String Arcade on CD

100% of the sales from this recording go to the Alameda Music Project. AMP is an after school, K-5 music program, based on the El Sistema music program of Venezuela and is a tuition-free program featuring strings, chorus and percussion. The String Arcade began as a Kickstarter campaign which was succesfully funded in Aug. 2013.. The project was produced by composer Dren McDonald. He arranged 13 of the songs (4 of them his own compositions), mixed the recordings, oversaw the KS campaign and worked with the musicians during the sessions. 4 of the songs were arranged by Jason Poss (Sonic, Tron, Ecco and Galaga). Tim Lindeen was the remote recording engineer.
