Send In Pix and Video from LA Concert Tomorrow! (UPDATED)

What a week!  I’ve been in final rehearsals for tomorrow’s big free concert in Downtown LA.  If you’re in the area, don’t miss this incredible event under the stars.  There will be some VERY EXCITING surprises that I wish I could spoil for you now, but it’s only a day away… might as well save it for tomorrow.

You are all welcome to bring a video camera or take photos at tomorrow’s concert.  If you get some video or stills, I’d be grateful if you could share them with me: the higher quality the better.  After the concert, just leave a comment below and we’ll coordinate with you.

UPDATED: Photography is fine, but DO NOT USE A FLASH! Thanks!

Battlestar Auction Panel This Thursday

As many of you probably already know, this week is the second and final BATTLESTAR GALACTICA AUCTION, May 8 – 10, 2009 at the Pasadena Convention Center:  your last chance to own a little piece of BG history… at least until half the stuff ends up on eBay again for ten times as much in a few years!

(This piano is up for auction, however Slick’s piano from Joe’s Bar was sadly destroyed because it was deemed damaged beyond repair.  Too bad.)

Thursday May 7th is PREVIEW DAY and there are some very special events happening (all the details are available at the official site).

At 6pm, I’m taking part in the Production Executive Panel.  The official line-up also includes sound designer Daniel Colman, producer Harvey Frand, VFX superviser Gary Hutzel, co-producer Paul Leonard, director Michael Nankin, director Wayne Rose, editor Andy Seklir and the dynamic writing due of Bradley Thompson and David Weddle.  I will screen an exclusive sneak-peek at the Music Documentaries included on the forthcoming Season 4 Blu Ray and DVD sets.


2 BG Mx Docs Coming Soon!

I have exciting news!  NBC Universal recently announced the “Battlestar Galactica” Season 4.5 DVD and Complete Series Blu Ray releases.  These will include TWO documentaries about my work: “The Evolution of a Cue” and “The Musicians Behind Daybreak.”  

These two docs were directed and co-produced by Matthew Gilna, who did our last film, “Inside the Secrets of the Behind the Making of the Music of Battlestar Galactica: Revealed.”  I know many fans who enjoyed that movie, but were disappointed that it didn’t actually reveal anything about how my music team and I work.  🙂  You will all be pleased to know that both of these films are serious documentaries and run a combined 60 minutes! 

“The Evolution of a Cue” (DVD and BluRay) will walk you through my entire process of scoring, from the editor’s temp score, through sketching, writing, recording and the final mix.  “The Musicians Behind Daybreak” (BluRay only) features interviews with each principle musician and goes into further detail of the Daybreak score, including several music videos like this one that went up on Hulu recently
