We love Jeremy Soule's music here on Dealspwn. We even have a little MP3-playing hair doll of the musical maestro in the office that busts out 'Dragonborn' on loop.

Well. Not really. That would be weird. But there's definitely a shrine. Maybe.

Anyway, the BAFTA-award-winning Mr. Soule recently began a Kickstarter campaign for his first, unrestricted foray in classical music: Symphony No. 1, "The Northerner" (Opus 1). And it's already quadrupled the modest $10,000 goal.

Soule has helped to score any high profile games over the years, including the likes of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the Guild Wars franchise, Neverwinter Nights, Forgotten Realms: Icewind Dale, Harry Potter, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Total Annihilation, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, SOCOM: Navy Seals, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, Secret of Evermore, Warhammer 40,000, Dungeon Siege I & II, Supreme Commander, Company of Heroes, and Prey

"Kickstarter offers us a wonderful opportunity, and with your help, we can kindle the beginnings of what will be a new way in which to bring life to music in the concert hall and into the lives of others," said Soule. "I want to thank you in advance, dear friends and supporters, for your kindness, enthusiasm, and belief in what I do.  I look forward to writing this work for you."

The funds sit at $40,760 at the time of writing, with 26 days left to go. Stretch goals are apparently on their way.
