I have always wanted to do a musical interpretation of The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, but I was holding out till I could do some equipment and software upgrades. However, during a Facebook Live session on 1-16-2017 I was working on something from scratch and it was very close to the sound I wanted to produce for this Dark Tower series, so I decided to polish it up and begin the journey. It sparked in my mind the various themes I want to include for the various characters in the series.

“Wait, so you’re gong to do a musical interpretation of the ENTIRE Dark Tower series? That’s certainly something extremely ambitious”  Yes it is, and yes that’s my goal.

Obviously this is not something that’s going to all be flying out at everyone this year.  This is a multi year project, and in between I’ll still be releasing the occasional ambient styled and chill out styled albums I have released before.  However, I play to have one Dark Tower release each year.

I’ll be doing another read through of the series while I take detailed notes and form the themes throughout the series. My current plan is to have 1 release per book in the series.  The names of the releases won’t match exactly to the titles of the book, but will be close.  For example, my thoughts on the title for the first release is the title of this post, “Gunslinger – A Musical Journey to The Dark Tower: Volume 1”.

We’ll see if that sticks.

So with that said, here is my “Tentative” release schedule for these.  Of course, if inspiration hits early and work is completed early this will adjust.

The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger – 2017
The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three – 2018
The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands – 2019
The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass – 2020
The Dark Tower: The Wind Through the Keyhole – 2021
The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla – 2022
The Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah – 2023
The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower – 2024

You’ll notice that I include The Wind Through the Keyhole in the middle of the main books as it is set chronologically between Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla.

This single, Life for your crop, that I’m sharing with you represents a common theme that will be carried out with the series.  A sort of march or cadence to follow us along through the journey.

For your father’s sake, listen. I will set my watch and warrant on it that you will enjoy.

I can’t wait to share more with you from the music of Mid-World.
Thankee Sai!
