Humanity, And Composer Bear McCreary’s Music Live On With Soundtrack Release

Burbank, CA – February 9, 2010– La-La Land Records revisits the acclaimed TV seriesBattlestar Galactica with the release of the soundtrack for the two[feature-length] TV events, Battlestar Galactica: The Plan and BattestarGalactica: Razor on February 23, 2010. Both The Plan and Razor feature music by series composer BearMcCreary. La-La Land Records isreleasing the The Plan/Razor soundtracks through a license agreement with NBCUniversal Television, DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan/Razor composer McCreary’s Galactica score has beendescribed as "sharp and sensitive" (The Wall Street Journal), "akey element in establishing the show's dark, complex tone," (The HollywoodReporter) and "rich, raw, oddly stirring... kick-ass and powerful ashell," (E! Online). It"fits the action so perfectly, it's almost devastating: a sci-fi scorelike no other," (NPR). McCreary has performed sold-out shows with theBattlestar Galactica Orchestra during Comic Con in San Diego, and in LosAngeles at the Grand Performances series and at The Roxy.

McCreary currently scores the new FOX series Human Target, NBC’s Trauma and two seriesfor Syfy -- Eureka and the Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, both of whichare produced by Universal Cable Productions. McCreary’s credits include the Capcom video game Dark Voidand the feature films Wrong Turn 2 and the Rest Stop films. McCreary was among a handful of selectprotégés of late film music legend Elmer Bernstein and is a classically trainedcomposer with degrees in Composition and Recording Arts from the prestigiousUSC Thornton School of Music.

“After finishing my four season journey scoring Battlestar Galactica and releasing four remarkable albums with La LaLand Records, I am thrilled to be able to return to this musical universe,”said McCreary. “These two scores make any fan's album collection complete.”

Edward James Olmos (Captain William “Husker” Adama) directed Battlestar Galactica: The Plan,which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray in 2009, and aired on Syfy in January2010. The Cylons began ashumanity'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 theirdevastating 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 adevastating Cylon attack, this time from the perspective of Officer Kendra Shaw-- who reports for duty on the Battlestar Pegasus. When mankind's future isforever changed on that fateful day, Kendra is reshaped into a 'razor', a toolof war, under the ruthless guidance of her commander, Admiral Cain. Battlestar Galactica: Razor tells theuntold story of Pegasus and provides chilling clues to the fate of humanity asthe final chapters of the Battlestar Galactica story unfold. Battlestar Galactica: Razor originallyaired on Syfy in November, 2007 and was released a week later on DVD andBlu-Ray.

“When I compiled the Season 4 soundtrack, it became clear that there was not enoughroom on even a two-disc set to accommodate cues from Razor and The Plan,” saidMcCreary. “Combining them on toone album made perfect sense, because both narratives flashback to the sametime period within the larger BSG story and offer different perspectives on thesame events. The scores to Razorand The Plan are two sides of the same musical coin.”

Also available from La-La Land Records are McCreary’s soundtracks for BattlestarGalactica Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 4, Caprica, Eureka, Terminator: The Sarah ConnorChronicles, Wrong Turn 2 and the Rest Stop films.
