> LA-LA LAND RECORDS RE-ENGAGES IN THE CYLON WARS WITH TWO NEW SOUNDTRACKS COMPOSED BY BEAR MCCREARY
> Battlestar Galactica: Blood& Chrome on March 12th
> Caprica: Original Television Soundtrack in May
> (February 5, 2013 – Burbank, CA) La-La Land Records announces the release of two new soundtracks
Battlestar Galactica: Blood& Chrome on March 12th and Caprica:
Original Television Soundtrack
in May. Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) composed
the music for both series.
> “In scoring the Battlestar Galactica prequels Caprica and Blood& Chrome, I returned to the unique
combination of world and orchestral sounds that defined my previous
score,” McCreary described.
“But, both prequels had their own distinct approach. Caprica was
interlaced with delicate chamber
orchestra textures, solo harp and other-worldly source songs. Blood&
Chrome is energized by heavy
distorted-synthesizers and searing electric guitar performances.
Listeners will hear, however,
that all three series have a common musical DNA.”
> Battlestar Galactica: Blood& Chrome (a prequel to the critically acclaimed hit series, Battlestar
Galactica) takes place in the midst of the First Cylon war. As the
battle between humans and their
creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial
worlds, a young, talented
fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned
to one of the most powerful
battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and
in pursuit of the intense
action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly finds himself at
odds with his co-pilot, the
battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton). With only 47 days left in his
tour of duty, Coker
desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it.
Though they clash at first,
the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine escort mission with
an enigmatic passenger
(Lili Bordan) turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the
> Blood& Chrome is the second prequel from the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series. The
first was Caprica, which aired from 2009-2010. Though it only lasted
one season, the series
and its music cultivated their own loyal following.
> “The Caprica series soundtrack was made possible by the tireless enthusiasm of the series’
passionate fans,” said McCreary. “After countless Tweets, Facebook
posts, emails, questions
and rants, fans made it clear they wanted to experience this music in
album format. I am thrilled
to collaborate once again with La-La Land Records to release more music
from the Battlestar
> Bear McCreary’s unique combination of atypical instrumental background (he is a professional
accordionist) with rigorous classical training prepared him to compose
for disparate genres. By
the age of 24, McCreary was launched into pop culture history with his
groundbreaking score to
SyFy’s hit series Battlestar Galactica, for which he composed “the most
innovative music on TV
today” (Variety). It “fits the action so perfectly, it’s almost
devastating: a sci-fi score like
no other” (NPR). Io9.com declared Bear McCreary one of the Ten Best
Science Fiction Composers of
all time, listing him alongside legends John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith
and Bernard Herrmann.
> McCreary continues to write for the television show The Walking Dead. In 2013 he will lend his
talents to SyFy and Trion World’s groundbreaking entertainment
experience, Defiance, a combined
launch of a MMO videogame and television series as well as Da Vinci’s
Demons, a bold new historical
fantasy series from David S. Goyer (co-writer of The Dark Knight
trilogy) for STARZ. His upcoming
film projects include Europa Report and Knights of Badassdom. His other
credits include critically
acclaimed scores for series such as Terminator: The Sarah Connor
Chronicles, Eureka and The Cape.
His swashbuckling score for Human Target featured the largest
orchestra ever assembled in the
history of series television and earned him his first Emmy nomination.
His videogame credits
include SOCOM 4 and Dark Void.
> Battlestar Galactica: Blood& Chrome, can be watched as twelve 10-minute webisodes on Machinima.com
and will air as a two-hour movie on Syfy on February 10, 2013. The
DVD, BluRay, and digital download
will be released on February 19, 2013.
