Queensryche drummer Scott Rockenfield is to compose the music for an educational project titled Tale Of A City.
The animated series will feature two characters who explore the history of the world’s great cities. Rockenfield and director and writer Richard Jellerson have launched an Indiegogo campaign seeking $70,000 to finance production.
Rockenfield says: “Tale Of A City is a really exciting. I just love the intrigue and fascination about the project – I’m super-excited to be a part of it.”
The first episode will concentrate on Boston while later instalments will look at New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, London, Paris and Rome.
