LA-LA LAND RECORDS TO RELEASE BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE PLAN/RAZOR
Humanity, And Composer Bear McCrearyâ€™s Music Live On With Soundtrack Release
Burbank, CA â€“ February 9, 2010â€“ La-La Land Records revisits the acclaimed TV series Battlestar Galactica with the release of the soundtrack for the two [feature-length] TV events, Battlestar Galactica: The Plan and Battestar Galactica: Razor on February 23, 2010. Both The Plan and Razor feature music by series composer Bear McCreary. La-La Land Records is releasing the The Plan/Razor soundtracks through a license agreement with NBC Universal Television, DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group.
Battlestar Galactica: The Plan/Razor composer McCrearyâ€™s Galactica score has been described as "sharp and sensitive" (The Wall Street Journal), "a key element in establishing the show's dark, complex tone," (The Hollywood Reporter) and "rich, raw, oddly stirring... kick-ass and powerful as hell," (E! Online). It "fits the action so perfectly, it's almost devastating: a sci-fi score like no other," (NPR). McCreary has performed sold-out shows with the Battlestar Galactica Orchestra during Comic Con in San Diego, and in Los Angeles at the Grand Performances series and at The Roxy.
McCreary currently scores the new FOX series Human Target, NBCâ€™s Trauma and two series for Syfy -- Eureka and the Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, both of which are produced by Universal Cable Productions. McCrearyâ€™s credits include the Capcom video game Dark Void and the feature films Wrong Turn 2 and the Rest Stop films. McCreary was among a handful of select protĂ©gĂ©s of late film music legend Elmer Bernstein and is a classically trained composer with degrees in Composition and Recording Arts from the prestigious USC Thornton School of Music.
â€śAfter finishing my four season journey scoring Battlestar Galactica and releasing four remarkable albums with La La Land Records, I am thrilled to be able to return to this musical universe,â€ť said McCreary. â€śThese two scores make any fan's album collection complete.â€ť
Edward James Olmos (Captain William â€śHuskerâ€ť Adama) directed Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray in 2009, and aired on Syfy in January 2010. The Cylons began as humanity's robot servants. They rebelled and evolved and now they look like us. Their plan is simple: destroy the race that enslaved them. But when their devastating attack leaves human survivors, the Cylons have to improvise. Battlestar Galactica: The Plan tells the story of two powerful Cylon leaders, working separately, and their determination to finish the task.
Battlestar Galactica: Razor also tells the story of what happens on the eve of a devastating Cylon attack, this time from the perspective of Officer Kendra Shaw -- who reports for duty on the Battlestar Pegasus. When mankind's future is forever changed on that fateful day, Kendra is reshaped into a 'razor', a tool of war, under the ruthless guidance of her commander, Admiral Cain. Battlestar Galactica: Razor tells the untold story of Pegasus and provides chilling clues to the fate of humanity as the final chapters of the Battlestar Galactica story unfold. Battlestar Galactica: Razor originally aired on Syfy in November, 2007 and was released a week later on DVD and Blu-Ray.
â€śWhen I compiled the Season 4 soundtrack, it became clear that there was not enough room on even a two-disc set to accommodate cues from Razor and The Plan,â€ť said McCreary. â€śCombining them on to one album made perfect sense, because both narratives flashback to the same time period within the larger BSG story and offer different perspectives on the same events. The scores to Razor and The Plan are two sides of the same musical coin.â€ť
Also available from La-La Land Records are McCrearyâ€™s soundtracks for Battlestar Galactica Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 4, Caprica, Eureka, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Wrong Turn 2 and the Rest Stop films.
