Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Since the early 19th century, countless millions of people around the world have married to the sounds of just two or three songs: Pachelbel's Canon in D Major, or Wagner's Bridal Chorus for the bride's entrance, and Mendelssohn's Wedding March.
Thomas Krafft, a hopeful new composer from California’s Bay Area, wants to change that.
"People love classical music and tradition, but they also want their marriage ceremony to be unique," says Krafft. "I want to give people more musical choices for their weddings - starting with a very unique proposal for one couple in particular."
While he is preparing to release his music to the general public in coming months, Krafft plans to offer something far more exclusive first. Couples will have the chance to bid for the rights to be the first ever in the world to incorporate these new pieces in their own wedding ceremony.
The couple, to be selected in coming weeks from applications and offers submitted at KrafftMusic.com, will also help choose the names for these pieces that one day might be as well known and popular as those of Pachelbel, Wagner and Mendelssohn.
After the winners are selected, Krafft will devote several weeks to arranging the music to suit the ceremony’s musical ensemble, in addition to finalizing the names of the pieces, and preparing his wedding gift - the original manuscripts of both compositions, signed and dedicated to the newlyweds. Krafft plans to use the proceeds from this promotion to publish dozens of other pieces he has composed over the past two decades, as well as to fund other projects - including an early-stage software startup business, and distribution of another musical piece to benefit women's cancer research.
"Music for me has always been a private thing, but recently I decided I should share what I’ve done." Krafft continues, "My professional life here in Silicon Valley has required me to set aside my own creative endeavors. I'm focusing now on things that make me happy and also give something back to the world."
