: "I also included two theme sketches: one for the Main Series Theme and one for New Cap City. These types of sketches are always helpful when I’m beginning a new project, because I can develop my ideas without having the restraints of matching picture. I am free to explore mood, energy and melody. Generally, no one but the executive producer or director ever hears these sketches, and sometimes even they never hear them. I included sketches on this “Caprica” record because I wanted to reward fans with something extra special for staying so vocal about this one and making it possible for the record to be released."<ref>{{cite_web|url=http://www.bearmccreary.com/#blog/blog/albums/caprica-series-soundtrack-album/|title= Caprica Series Soundtrack Album|date=29 August 2013|accessdate=14 May 2019|last=McCreary|first=Bear|format=|language=English}}</ref>
