Composing the music for "Highlander-The Series" has been a rewarding experience, allowing me to sonically explore the emotional life of Duncan and the people around him. It has also given me the opportunity to pose my own musings about mortality and place them in a musical context. After all, who hasn't wondered what it would be like to live forever? We have all dreamed of the freedom that an eternity of time might afford us, at the same time questioning whether immortality would be a blessing or a curse.
Because of the emotional depth inherent in "Highlander-The Series" it is, by far, the most satisfying work I have done as a composer, and, I believe, my best. Over the years, fans worldwide have contacted me, inquiring as to whether there might be a soundtrack available. Many people have evidently long felt that the music is an invaluable part of the show's attraction, and far be it from me to take issue.
And so, finally, I have released a CD and Cassette of some of the choicest cuts gleaned from the first three years of "Highlander-The Series". Each piece was lifted from the original masters, digitally enhanced and re-mastered in order to optimize the listening experience. Because of the audio limitations inherent in television broadcasting, these recording actually sound superior to their original debut.
So far, the response to this compilation has been gratifying, to say the least. I look forward to producing future recordings of the music from "Highlander-The Series".

"The response has been really great," says Bellon. "People have been sending in orders by E-mail and regular mail, and we ship the CDs and cassettes out as fast as those orders come in. I'm particularly gratified by all the 'thank you' letters and testimonials we have recieved regarding the soundtrack. If sales continue at this rate, there will definitely be a second CD of music from the series."
