The Krotons Soundtrack

Silver Screen Records have announced the next title in their series of releases to celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary. It has been revealed that May 13th will see the release of The Krotons soundtrack, a late second Doctor story with music credited to Brian Hodgson and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

The cover art for the CD has also been released and can be seen to the right.

Silver Screen Records reports:

Generating and manipulating music and sound effects defines sound design, a process that is common on TV and film productions nowadays. However The BBC Radiophonic Workshop was way ahead of the game in the 1960s. Brian Hodgson was a member of the Workshop working closely with the seminal figure of Delia Derbyshire. As the original sound effects creator for Doctor Who he was responsible for the chilling Dalek voices and the powerhouse sound of the TARDIS lifting off (created by running a back door key for his mother’s house along the bass string of a gutted piano and treating it electronically). His highly innovative techniques are fully on display on this collection of ‘special sounds’ that provided the background to Doctor Who – The Krotons, broadcast in December 1968 and January 1969.
