Feel the music

Great article here from Alan Sepinwall on two of television's best and most iconic composers, Lost's Michael Giacchino and BSG's Bear McCreary. Music plays such a key role on both shows (there's even a quote in the article from Damon Lindelof that calls the music the "fourteenth regular" castmember) and it's an interesting and in-depth look at the process that goes into shaping the mood, atmosphere and character of the score.

Also, you should check out McCreary's blog, particularly this entry on the mid-season finale, "Revelations." It's fascinating reading, and I only wish I could read music to get the full impact of the thinking that went into each choice.
