Hollywood, CA (July 30, 2009)–Composer Bear McCreary, with engineer Patricia Sullivan Fourstar and music co-producer Steve Kaplan, recently visited Bernie Grundman Mastering to master the new two-CD soundtrack, Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.
The composer explores new musical soundscapes with his score to the fourth and final season of the critically lauded SciFi Channel television series starring Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff. McCreary enriches his mix of orchestra, vocals, rock, world-beats and synth, creating a sonic experience that resonates beyond the popular television show.
Disc One collects Season Four’s best musical moments up to Daybreak, the series finale, which is presented on Disc Two. A 20-page CD booklet contains exclusive liner notes from the show’s cast and crew. Released on July 21, Battlestar Galactica: Season 4 marks the 100th soundtrack release from La-La Land Records.
In addition to completing Battlestar Galactica’s final season, McCreary is currently scoring Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, the next chapter in the iconic Terminator franchise. He recently scored Caprica, the highly anticipated Galactica prequel film and has signed on as composer for the full series in 2010. He also scores SciFi Channel’s highest-rated series, Eureka. McCreary’s feature film work includes Warner Bros.’ Rest Stop, (2006); its successful sequel Rest Stop: Don’t Look Back (2008), as well as Twentieth Century Fox’s Wrong Turn (2007) starring Henry Rollins. Both Rest Stop and Wrong Turn 2 quickly became the best-selling straight-to-DVD films in their studios’ histories.
