ScoreKeeper Giving Away Two Bears For the Price of None! THE CAPE & THE MUSIC OF BATTLESTAR GALACTICA FOR SOLO PIANO!!
Greetings! ScoreKeeper here offering you two Bears for the price of none! That's right. Because one Bear just wouldn't be enough, I've decided to bundle "The Music of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA For Solo Piano" and THE CAPE as a single Bear-tastic giveaway!
"The Music of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA For Solo Piano" features 2-CDs of solo piano music from the hit SyFy television series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (2004-2009). Many popular cues including "Roslin and Adama," "Wander My Friends," "Battlestar Sonatica," "Something Dark Is Coming," and one of my all-time favorites, "Prelude to War" have been beautifully arranged for solo piano by Bear McCreary and expertly performed by pianist Joohyun Park. This is a really cool album offering unique variations on the music from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.
THE CAPE (2011) was a short-lived television series also scored by Bear McCreary utilizing a rather large orchestra for each episode. It's not too often you hear music this robust coming from the television world. Despite the show's short lifespan, McCreary composed some of the most ear-catching television music of the last decade. This 2-CD soundtrack is a must-have for any self-proclaimed fan of Bear McCreary.
I have five copies of each of these soundtracks that need to loving ears to nurture and care for them. All you have to do is…
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject: GIVE ME A DOUBLE BEAR! and include your name, mailing address, a valid email address, and your favorite Bear McCreary score (film or television). I'll cull the names and randomly select five winners who will be receiving "The Music of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA for Solo Piano" courtesy of BSX Records and THE CAPE courtesy of La-La Land Records. The deadline for submission is Saturday, May 26, 2012 at 11:59pm CST. Only one entry per person. International entries will be accepted. Duplicates will be discarded.

Even hardcore BSG fans would want the rest of the orchestra.

It's true that the orchestrated versions are generally better, but a few tracks do translate well and as a pianist I love being able relive some of those moments at my own ivories (I happily own the sheet music).

Although now that I think about it, they'd probably want the sheet music instead. Hmm..

They are truly awesome. Try Shape of Things to Come and Violence and Variations in particular.

As far as who would want these, well I'm with D. Sullivan. Bear's killer, man. Not since Chris Franke's B5 work have I heard a television composer that really stands out to me. In fact, he's the only reason I can stand the Walking Dead. Last I heard, Bear was also going to be involved in some project with Pete Griffon, as Pete had stated after he left ZPZ. I was one of the original Dweezilla campers, so I was pretty shocked to see him leave the band. I'll have to make it out to LA pretty soon and say hey. Back to Bear, he really stands out melodically, and he has an actual identifiable writing style within all of the soundtracks that I have heard him do. This is pretty cool in a day and age when it is rare. B

Bear's work on Eureka was streets ahead of his work on The Cape. The Cape, as a show overall, was such a massive letdown. I guess I can't give them shit for everything though - at least they tried to make their generic idea work. But when you base a show around a hero, he better be goddamn interesting and The Cape... was far from it.

The Cape sounds a little too much like Human Target - two "comic book" heroes? Or leftover music from HT? Still, Bear, very good work for TV.
