  1. If you watched Battlestar Galactica or The Sarah Connor Chronicles, you might recognize this guy. I think he does a great job. Anyone else buy his albums for Battlestar Galactica? He also does an admirable theme for Sarah Connor Chronicles but that's unreleased.
  2. Battlestar Galactica & Caprica

    I noticed something cool during last night's new Galactica. Might've just been imagining things, but it seemed to me that at least part of the battle that consumed the last two acts was heavily influenced by, if not a direct homage to, the Battle of Yavin. Mainly the control/command room, the distorted voices over the radio (this was the one that made me realize it), and even some of the cockpit shots when Vipers were shot down. I know I might be the only one here who saw this, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

  5. Interesting pairing eh? But they remind me very much of each other. They both can write the big boomy scores that studios come to expect these days, and yet they do it in a much more sophisticated fashion than these types of scores are written with. McCreary relies more on ethnic instrumentation to deliver that big sound (with the heavy taiko drums, etc.), where John Powell implements more electronics. To me, John Powell still sounds very RCP, but McCreary has developed a sound signature all his own. John Powell I can still predict the next note on, McCreary takes familiar ideas into new directions. I'd honestly say that McCreary's music is probably the most surprising to me these days in terms of how well I can predict what direction a melody or theme will take. And that's something rare. Vote!
