BBC Radiophonic Music

    The reissue of the 1968 BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s hugely influential 10th anniversary album, featuring remastered early electronic works of John Baker, David Cain and Delia Derbyshire.

    Widely regarded as a major influence on the development of electronic music worldwide, BBC Radiophonic Music is a compilation of short works, often composed as intros to various radio or television programs. Conceived in a time when analogue sampling meant hours of slicing tape with razor blades, BBC Radiophonic Music is brimming with zippy themes, unsettling atmospherics, riffs, loops, clicks and beeps. Insanely catchy yet deeply sinister, this is ‘collage music’, produced, according to Desmond Briscoe of BBC Radiophonic Workshop, “with the intention of entertaining rather than informing”.

    This is an essential album for analogue and TV theme obsessives, and anyone with an interest in contemporary electronica; mysterious, eccentric and celestial, it is a celebration of one of the UK's most treasured and unique institutions.

    Bernard Herrmann

    OST Hitchcock Themes - Vertigo / North By Northwest

      THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2018 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

      Bernard Herrmann is the undoubted master of the film score and his music for Vertigo and North By Northwest remain as vital a component as the director, actors and script. Vertigo crackles with tension as James Stewart’s character Scottie goes through an emotional wringer. Herrmann blew away the lush melodies that dominated music in films of previous decades and delivered harsh, stinging, repetitive themes overlaid on a deceptive symphonic score. The sound is as experimental as the film, which 60 years from release remains one of the milestones of cinematic history. One year on and in North By Northwest, Cary Grant is the new man in peril. This time it’s not mentally but physically as he is pursued by a spy network and the police. Herrmann ratchets up the tension with an orchestral tour-de-force, highlighting the thrill of the chase. He described it as, “a kaleidoscopic orchestral fandango designed to kick-off the exciting rout which follows."

      Elizabeth Parker / BBC Radiophonic Workshop

      The Living Planet - A Portrait Of The Earth (Arctic Pearl Vinyl Edition)

        Originally shown on BBC1 in 1984, this David Attenborough 12 part series was the sequel to the pioneering Life On Earth, taking natural history television to a new level of brilliance.

        The ground-breaking score was composed by Elizabeth Parker at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and released on vinyl by the BBC in the same year. Parker joined the BBC and in 1978 after gaining a master’s degree in composition and recording techniques at the University of East Anglia. She moved permanently to the Workshop’s Maida Vale studios where she realised the music for well over 300 TV and radio programmes before her departure in 1996.

        The Emmy-nominated music for “The Living Planet” was performed on synthesisers, blending highly evocative themes, sounds and effects into a brilliant accompaniment to television’s stunning images of the Earth’s environments, and into an enthralling sound picture for this album.
