Official Statements

Bear McCreary on his inclusion of two theme sketches in this release:

"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."[2]
