DISTANT SHORES: Dragonlance Soundtrack Composer Karl Preusser
This time we interview Karl Preusser, the composer of the music for the Dragonlance movie. You can find him on MySpace or browse his website.
Also, if you are interested in the innovative way the music was recorded, you can visit the orchestra.net website.
Finally, two important groups contributed to the magnificent sound of Karl’s score: the Mila Vocal Ensemble and the Musica Antiqua. We hope you’ll take a moment and visit the sites of these two astonishing groups.
