Acclaimed composer Bear McCreary has mastered the new two-CD soundtrack Battlestar Galactica: Season 4 at Bernie Grundman Mastering with engineer Patricia Sullivan Fourstar and music co-producer Steve Kaplan. The composer explores new musical soundscapes with his score to the fourth and final season of the critically lauded Sci-Fi Channel television series starring Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff.

McCreary's compositions feature a distinctive and inventive mix of orchestra, vocals, rock, world beats and synth, creating a sonic experience that resonates even beyond the popular television show. Disc One collects Season Four's best musical moments up to "Daybreak," the series finale, which is presented on Disc Two. A 20-page CD booklet contains exclusive liner notes from the show's cast and crew.

In addition to completing Battlestar Galactica's final season, McCreary is currently scoring 20th Century Fox's hit Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, the next chapter in the iconic Terminator franchise. He recently scored Caprica, the highly anticipated Galactica prequel film, and has signed on as composer for the full series in 2010. He also scores Sci Fi Channel's highest-rated series, Eureka. McCreary's feature film work includes Warner Bros.' Rest Stop (2006) and its successful sequel Rest Stop: Don't Look Back (2008), as well as Fox's Wrong Turn (2007) starring Henry Rollins. Both Rest Stop and Wrong Turn 2 quickly became the best-selling straight-to-DVD films in their studios' histories.

Released on July 21, Battlestar Galactica: Season 4 marks the 100th soundtrack release from La-La Land Records.
