Lots going on this month in the Battlestar Galactica universe. Battlestar Galactica:The Plan is airing tonight where you’ll get to “See the war for humanities survival from the other Side”. According to the Wikipedia page, “It consists of newly filmed material as well as a compilation of footage from the TV series and miniseries.” The IMDB listing credits Edward James Almos as the director. The new series Caprica premiers on January 22nd.
Bear McCreary returns as composer for both shows. If you enjoy his music and want to learn more about his work visit his web site and blog.
Battlestar Galactica:The Plan was original released on DVD earlier in 2009 and around the time of the DVD’s release Bear wrote a lengthy post discussing the music.
Spoiler Alert, click hear to read after you’ve seen the movie – http://www.bearmccreary.com/blog/?p=2834. I also found out via his blog that in addition to Battlestar, Bear has been involved with some of my favorite performers via the Johnny “Vatos” Tribute to Oingo Boingo. That connection continues with “The Plan” as the blog entry mentions that Oingo Boing bassist John Avila on the “Final Five Theme”.
Shows and music should be Frakin’ awesome.
