Themes of Battlestar Galactica, Pt I

      I get asked pretty frequently about the use (or lack thereof) of “themes” in Battlestar Galactica. The word “theme” was something that the producers wanted to avoid as they re-launched Galactica, I think because they felt that strong, orchestral fanfare had been done to death in science fiction. Beyond that conceptual premise, the reality is that orchestral bombast in the score would ruin the carefully constructed sense of realism in the writing and production.


Diving Into Season Three

      Hey BG fans, I just thought I’d let you all know that the beginning of Season 3 truly kicks ass. I’ve started writing music for it and I think it’s safe to say you’ll be blown away. I won’t spoil anything (you have each other for that!) but I will say that the season premiere will air as a two hour movie… more intense than most films you pay to see in the darkened theater. 


So Very 21st Century

      The overhauled website is finally done, so this seemed the perfect time to put the blog up as well. How very “21st Century” of me. I’ll try to update this as often as possible. Once Battlestar Galactica goes back on the air, check back each Friday for the weekly dirt on that episode’s score and the enthralling antics that go into getting this music finished. I might even throw some freebie music samples up here from time to time.
