Music by Derek Wadsworth

—————————

The latest release in the series exploring the musical worlds of GERRY ANDERSON is the most extensive yet. Also available is Space: 1999 Year One on vinyl. And a x2 CD set (of both Year One and Year Two) with a 28 page booklet.

Space: 1999 ran for two series from 1975 to 1977 and depicted the occupants of Moonbase Alpha and their struggle for survival when, after the explosion of a nuclear waste dump, the Moon is hurtled into space. The series was the most expensive produced for British television at that time and the most musically diverse of all the shows made by Anderson for ITC.

Gerry’s long-time musical partner in all the previous adventures was Barry Gray and Space: 1999 proved to be the last of their collaborations. For Series 2, Derek Wadsworth took over the reins to provide a more contemporary sound.

This Year Two album contains Wadsworth’s score with specially selected cues to provide a driving and exciting narrative to convey the new adventures.

The popularity of the series has continued unabated with DVD releases from Network and new audio adventures created for Big Finish.

As with all the previous releases in this series, the albums feature newly remastered sound and episode presentations.

Re:Scored – Epic Classical Volume 2

ReScored Epic Classical Volume 2
amazon apple spotify
Music by London Music Works

—————————

This is the second album in Silva Screen Records’ Re:scored series and a follow up to Re:scored Epic Classical. The Re: Scored series introduces fresh, thoughtful and contemporary film score reworkings of established genres. On Epic Classical Vol. 2, composer Antonin Roux re-arranges classical favourites in “epic” film score mode. Bach’s Cello Suite no. 1 in G major, Strauss’s The Blue Danube Waltz and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March in D Major feature award-winning singer Merethe Soltvedt.

The 10 classical compositions chosen for re:scoring are ingrained in popular culture and have appeared in many movies, from drama and animation to Sci-Fi and comedy. Here, the big expansive sound is always a shortcut for an epic win or lose, strength or weakness, purgative or transformational moment in the story; the distinct phrases and harmonies have now become a shortcut for turmoil, end and new beginnings.

Throughout the history of film making, iconic sequences were created by syncing classical music to picture; such as Debussy’s Claire De Lune as part of the Bellagio Resort’s fountain show in Ocean’s Eleven, Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries played at full volume in the Apocalypse Now helicopter invasion scene and Strauss’s Blue Danube Waltz op.314 adopted in Kubrik’s 2001: A Space Odyssey as a recurring theme, giving the movie a timeless and hypnotic quality.

Merethe Soltvedt’s rich vocals can be heard on Interstellar, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, X-Men and Ready Player One. Merethe is also a performing and collaborative artist. Notably, Merethe sang with a full orchestra and choir at the Walt Disney Concert Hall as well as with Norwegian rock stars and international artists across Europe, in New York and LA.

Antonin Roux is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist and film composer based in France.

Before We Die

Before We Die

Music by Jeroen Swinnen

—————————

Jeroen Swinnen’s dark Symphonic score for the Channel 4’s Bristol Noir remake of Sweden crime series Innan Dör, starring Lesley Sharp and Patrick Gibson.

The Scandi-style 6-episode crime drama’s look and feel is commented on by the Arts Desk – “The action has been transplanted to Bristol, whose buildings, bridges and narrow streets have been rendered atmospheric with rich colour textures and stylish visual compositions. The opening credits, with ominously pulsating music and dramatic monochrome portraits of the cast-members, also suggests we’ve stepped away a little from the Brit-TV norm.”

Depicting the tenebrous world of the crime-world, the score is, consciously, never allowed to rise above the strings mid-register. Harmonic clashes often feel protractedly strained, depicting the feelings and inner worlds of the characters. The tender, romantic piano theme Croatians (Bianca), is reserved for the youngest child of the Mimica family, uninvolved in the family’s criminal activity but very much affected by it. Her brother Davor’s theme, Croatians (Davor), is given a cello line that never breaks free from the confined, orchestral mid-register, dwelling on the hidden desperation of choices once made.

Jeroen talks about his creative experience: “In many series these days the music tends to be more of a minimalistic underscore for the scenes it supports. It is usually a matter of ‘less is more’. For the score of ‘Before We Die’ I was constantly challenged to do more, give it more energy, bigger melodies, more drama, bigger action, and I loved every bit of it! To compose a soundtrack to the poetic and filmic style of director Jan Matthys was a gift and a challenge at the same time. It is quite rare to get that much space from a director.”

“I always record my scores with the same team, the Casco Phil Chamber Orchestra, in Dada Studios in the centre of Brussels. I will never forget the players’ smiling faces when they were recording the music whilst watching the images. The poetic style of filming, combined with the score I wrote, really touched the musicians. They put their heart and soul into it which is the biggest gift for a composer!”

Jeroen Swinnen is a classically trained Belgian composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter. Coming from a rich and varied musical background, Jeroen is known for mingling various influences, crossing brooding string scores with electro-synthpop, post-rock and indie sounds. After years of touring and headlining festivals with Belpop’s finest art-pop acts, Jeroen has recently started writing television soundtracks, including the acclaimed score for Hotel Beau Séjour, Transport and The Twelve on Netflix.

Music by Sarah Warne

—————————

Sarah Warne’s soundtrack to BBC One hard hitting prison drama Time. The soundtrack was written for a small ensemble featuring Laetitia Stott (Horns), Ed Ashby (Tuba), Eleanor Bartlett (Violin), Laurie Anderson (Viola), Peter Gregson (Cello) and Sarah Warne (Bowed harp and vocals).

Time is a three-part series written by Jimmy McGovern (Hillsborough, Broken and Accused), directed by Lewis Arnold (Des, Dark Money, The Forge) and starring Line of Duty’s Stephen Graham and Games of Thrones’ Sean Bean.

Composer Sarah Warne talks about the compositional process: “The music for Time explores the slow and painful road to redemption, the harrowing isolation of incarceration, and Mark and Eric’s united torment as they both strive to do what is right. Visceral yet sensitive performances from the score’s core ensemble, combined with off-kilter prepared piano and detuned ethereal textures, are designed to dig deep into the powerful questions at the centre of the drama.”

The series offers a realistic depiction of prison life. Sean Bean plays Mark Cobden, an ex-headteacher jailed for drink-driving and consumed by guilt over his actions who soon realises that he needs to learn how to survive in prison. Stephen Graham plays Eric McNally, a prison officer who becomes increasingly desperate to protect his son and arrives at a crossroads that forces him to choose between his principles and his love for his family.

Writer Jimmy McGovern comments: “The BBC have given me a brilliant young director and two of the greatest actors on the planet. I am overjoyed.”

Composer Sarah Warne is best known for her work on critically acclaimed television drama series, Humans (C4), and her most recent score for Des (ITV primetime). Her work also includes Dark Money (BBC1), Catching a Killer (C4), Girls On The Edge (BBC2), and Treasures of Ancient Greece (BBC4).

Sarah recently scored Trump’s Breadline Kids (C4) which observes several families in Ohio during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and is narrated by Sheridan Smith. She is currently scoring 4-part television drama series The Drowning starring Jill Halfpenny, Jonas Armstrong and Rupert Penry-Jones.

Music by Sarah Warne

—————————

Des is Sarah Warne’s 3rd TV soundtrack album release on Silva Screen Records. Previously released on Silva Screen were Dark Money broadcast in 2019 on BBC One and Humans series 2 & 3, broadcast during 2018 and 2019 on Channel 4.

Des is a British three-part television drama miniseries, based on real life events, the 1983 arrest of Scottish serial killer Dennis Nilsen and one of the most infamous criminal cases in UK history. David Tennant (Doctor Who, Good Omens) gives an award-winning performance as Dennis Nilsen, serial killer who murdered over fifteen young men and boys in London over a period of five years. Co-starring Daniel Mays and Jason Watkins, Des focuses on Nilsen’s capture and subsequent trial. The three-part series is based on the book Killing For Company by Brian Masters. The series premiered on ITV, UK on 14 September 2020 on. On 16th March 2021 the series was released on DVD and Blue-ray in the US.

The psychological portrait of Dennis Nilsen has given Sarah a stimulus to create an all-enveloping slow tide of pulsating electronic sound. Gently moving through a body of chords and punctuated by tenderly distorted piano, percussion and floating string fragments, Sarah Warne’s score provides a cold and meditative space for Nilsen’s character to unravel.

Sarah is a Film and Arts Composer and multi-instrumentalist based in London. Trained as a classical harpist and pianist, and as a composer Sarah specialises in the blending of acoustic instruments with unique electronic signatures. Her for love for narrative and drama so story-telling is always at the core of the music she creates. She is a graduate of Oxford University, The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and The National Film and Television School (MA Composing) and her recent work includes BAFTA nominated documentary series Catching a Killer (C4), drama series Humans series 2 & 3 (C4), Dark Money, Prey (ITV), Trump’s Breadline Kids and The Treasures of Ancient Greece (BBC 4).

Music by Paddy Kingsland and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

—————————

Paddy Kingsland was the first Radiophonic composer to see a solo release of his compositions, although he is not credited on the sleeve. “Fourth Dimension”, first released in 1973, showcased Kingsland’s theme tunes for television and radio while at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The recordings feature a rock-style backing band and synthesisers including the VCS 3 and “Delaware” Synthi 100, and the track “Reg” from the album was also released as the B side to the 1973 single release of the iconic Doctor Who theme tune.

Kingsland remained at the workshop for 21 years, leaving in 1981, during which time he composed music for much loved TV shows The Changes, Doctor Who and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy among others.

Through A Glass Darkly

Music by Peter Howell and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

—————————

Peter Howell joined the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1974, coming from a career in various psychedelic folk bands, which saw him record five albums with fellow musician John Ferdinando. He composed his first Doctor Who output in ’75 in the form of some incidental music for “Revenge of the Cybermen” and special sound for “Planet of Evil”. In 1980, he was asked by the programme’s then new producer, John Nathan-Turner, to update the iconic Doctor Who theme. The new arrangement appeared on that year’s “The Leisure Hive”, continuing to be used through Tom Baker’s remaining series as the Doctor and throughout Peter Davison’s. It was replaced during Colin Baker’s tenure in 1986 with a new version by Dominic Glynn.

“Through A Glass Darkly” was released in 1978 as a standalone studio album by Howell in collaboration with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The six original instrumental compositions (one of which is 19 minutes long) flaunt a prog rock influence as well as the distinctive electronic sound of the RWS. “The Astronauts” (track 5, side 2) appeared again as a B side to the 1980 single release of his version of the Doctor Who theme.
