Special thanks

I would like to give thanks to the writers, producers, cast and crew of LOST, who continually inspire me with each episode. To the members of the orchestra, who rise to the occasion and blow me away at every session, you are at the heart of this music. Special thanks to my music team, who are my family at work, and especially my family at home - Mick, Gracie and Griffy.

Michael Giacchino
