One Week From Today = Brand New Star Trek Music!

Are you excited for the Star Trek: Picard series premiere one week from today? All things being equal, that means the powers that be could begin releasing music from the series as soon as the same day.

Hopefully, we won’t have to wait until the end of Season 1 and if we’re lucky, CBS will follow the model Disney set in place with their Sci-fi series, The Mandalorian, which dropped eight albums containing all the music from each corresponding episode (each one is fantastic).

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of that approach, but it turned out to be a refreshing option and ended up serving as a turn-key archive of the show’s soundtrack.

Star Trek: Picard features music by composer Jeff Russo, who has been serving in the same role for both seasons of Star Trek: Discovery.

And since it is Thursday and we’re talking about Star Trek music, it seems proper to post The Music of Star Trek Podcast pilot from 2019.

Fair warning, it is decidedly, and wonderfully, NSFW. You’ve been warned.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
