BSG Piano Book Fan Performances Awards

Last year, I worked with Hal Leonard Publishing to release the “Battlestar Galactica” piano solo sheet music book.  The book contains my own personal piano arrangements of the most memorable and significant cues from the series.  I knew that BSG fans wanted to connect more directly with the score and the piano book gave them the basic DNA to reconstruct the music on their own instruments.

YouTube had already become a forum for fans to post their own performances of my music, even before there was any sheet music released.  So, I was pleased to see a virtual explosion of material pop up on the site after the book was released.  The videos range from the sublime to the ludicrous — some are genuinely skilled performances, others creatively entertaining short films, and everything in between.  A common love of the music of “BSG” threaded through them all.

I began assembling my personal favorites in a special playlist on my new YouTube channel.  And now, I’m presenting my official…  (more…)

Daybreak

I’ve been fortunate to work in a variety of narrative formats — including television, features, videogames and webseries. “Daybreak” is a multimedia narrative that draws the best elements of each together into a totally unique experience, and I’m thrilled to contribute original score and theme music to it.  The mysterious sci fi story unfolds over five chapters, beginning with Chapter 1:

EMP BSG Galactibash

This weekend I was honored to take part in the closing celebration of the EMP Science Fiction Hall of Fame’s “Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition.”  For the past 18 months, the museum has had remarkable memorabilia on display, including two vipers, a cylon raider, costumes and many props from “Battlestar Galactica,” as well as recorded interviews from dozens of the series’ cast and crew.

He Shoots, He Scores

I recently collaborated with a very talented animator named William Levin in a new episode of his webseries: He Shoots, He Scores:

The premise is a little eccentric: Hollywood composers are interviewed by someone impersonating comedian Richard Lewis and hilarity ensues.  Levin produced one last year featuring an actor playing “John Williams,” but this episode is the first where the composer is played by the actual composer in question: yours truly.

New Website and Forum!

Finally, the new and improved BearMcCreary.com is online and ready for prime time!  My previous website (which dated back to somewhere between the Triassic and Permian eras) had served me well, but it was time to create a new site that integrates my blog, multimedia and social media.  So, I hope you will spend a few minutes poking around the site and exploring.  There’s a lot to discover:
