BSG: The Plan/Razor CD Release Tues., Signing Sat.

This Tuesday, February 23rd, La-La Land Records will release the final “canon” Battlestar Galactica soundtrack: Battlestar Galactica: The Plan and Razor. This unique compilation, representing the two straight-to-DVD scores that were left off the Season 4 soundtrack album, will complete any BSG fan’s collection.

To celebrate this, and the recent release of Dark Void‘s original video game soundtrack, I’m doing a CD signing of both records this Saturday at Dark Delicacies!

DARK DELICACIES
4213 W. Burbank Blvd., Burbank, CA 91505
Saturday, February  27th, 2010 at 2pm

If you can’t make it to Burbank, fear not.  You can order personalized signed copies directly from the Dark Delicacies website.  International orders are accepted, too!  So, get your signed CDs of my two most recent albums and crank up the jamz!

If you want to learn more about the thematic development in these two films, check out my original blog entries for Razor and The Plan. They detail my compositional process and identify the major theme unique to each movie.  And, in case you missed it before, here’s a great behind-the-scenes video of my session with Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, recording the theme from “The Plan.”

BSG: The Plan and Razor will eventually be available on iTunes as well.  My sources tell me this should happen on Tuesday.  However, considering my luck with iTunes lately, it will more likely occur sometime before the sun expands and envelopes the planet.  :)  Seriously, though… an iTunes release is imminent.

Literally years in the making, this album contains music I wrote before and after the tracks on the Season 4 album, making it the perfect, book-ending companion piece.  I hope you enjoy this album as much as I did making it, and I’m eager to hear what you think of it.  I know you have all been waiting patiently for this for years.  The wait is almost over!  :)

So Say We All!
