My long-awaited “Battlestar Galactica” Piano Music Book is finally available, thanks to Hal Leonard and Universal Music Publishing. To celebrate the release, I have started an official YouTube Channel for fan-made “BSG” music performances: http://www.youtube.com/bearmccreary
Every two weeks, I will upload a new video of me performing a piece from the “BSG” Piano Music Book, at my own living room piano. Let’s kick off with one of my favorites, “Prelude to War:”
This channel isn’t just for me. You are all invited to take part in this “online living room concert.” If you create a YouTube video of your own “BSG” music performance, I want to feature it. Just post a link to your video in the comments section in this blog entry, or email it to us at “staff @ bearmccreary .com.”
I anticipate some beautiful performances, as I’ve already seen in some fan videos. But I’m also looking for creative folks who will reinterpret this material in a unique or entertaining way.
Can you play a “BSG” song on an instrument other than piano? Can anyone out there tackle a duet of “Kara Remembers?” Or a rock band performance of “Pegasus?” There’s plenty of room for inventive performances here.
And who knows? I just may give away some autographed music memorabilia to the creators of my favorite videos at the end of the summer. 🙂
So Say We All!
