Delia Derbyshire

Cut ups, mash-ups, circuit bending, tape-mangling and, oh yeah, the Dr. Who theme.

recognize, clowns

One of the true innovators of electronic music. And yes, she’s the person who “realised” (arranged, performed) the Doctor Who theme.

From wikipedia: “In August 1962 she assisted composer Luciano Berio at a two-week summer school at Dartington Hall, for which she borrowed several dozen items of equipment from the BBC. One of her first works, and the most widely known, was her 1963 electronic realization of a score by Ron Grainer for the theme tune of the Doctor Who series, one of the first television themes to be created and produced by entirely electronic means.”

SUPER LEGIT.

HAPPY AMELIA POND APPRECIATION DAY!

It’s been a year, almost to the day, and still I mourn that mad, brave Scottish girl who walked the stars. Among the many things I love about Amy, one of my favorite aspects of her is story: the role of others’ stories in her life, her role in various stories that played out, and the stories she herself created. This is the story of the storyteller, Amelia Pond.

Full lyrics under the cut (& listen with headphones!).

i have seen worlds born in my head
hanging on silver threads
for that, they cry “crazy”

i’m burning up under a small-town sun
but give me the chance to run
the skies will obey me

hitched a ride on a madman’s heart
i’ve never been out so far
the cosmos are beckoning

and there is a beast round every door
but what else is courage for?
each step is a reckoning

so don’t you promise 
unless you swear on it
there is no coming home from losing innocence

but in my hair are comets
i’ve never felt so honest
never mind all the times they’ve said i don’t make sense
because the stars have christened me “magnificent”

i carry my own guns for a fight
but that little girl poised for flight
each time i still bring her

but she’s taught me not to trust so hard
because patience just gives you scars;
they burn and they linger

so don’t you promise 
unless you swear on it
there is no coming home from losing innocence

but in my hair are comets
i’ve never felt so honest
never mind all the times they’ve said i don’t make sense
because the stars have christened me “magnificent”

falling through cracks to older times
planets along my spine
there’s so much i want to keep

pirate ships and flying whales
out of some fairytale
they’re all still there in my sleep…

so i will promise
to sometimes think upon it
but i don’t need daydreams in the present tense

i still look for comets
and if i’m being honest,
this last bow, the story now, seems to make perfect sense
i was then and i am still magnificent

You know that bit about how Peter Capaldi used to be in a punk band? With Craig Ferguson? Noisey has the story.

And the pictures. And the songs:

he was in an Eighties punk rock band called the Dreamboys. He was the lead vocalist. And Craig Ferguson, one of the biggest chatshow hosts in the US, played the drums. (Some other people who aren’t famous - Roderick Murray! Temple Clark! Robert Livsey! - were in it too.)

Murray Gold interview: Doctor Who music, Matt Smith, 12th Doctor, Regeneration & more…

via denofgeek

Composer Murray Gold has been one of the very few constants since the return of Doctor Who in 2005. His work on the world’s greatest show has been sublime, constantly delivering memorable themes, beautiful soundscapes and heartbreaking melodies each week. I caught up with Murray on the eve of his return to the Royal Albert Hall for the Doctor Who Proms and chatted all things Who, from series one to series eight… 

What were your feelings when you hear Matt was leaving Doctor Who?

I thought, ‘Well that means a lot of work!’ [Laughs] I thought, ‘Oh my god, are we really not going to hear I Am The Doctor again?’ [Laughs] I instantly began to think. ‘Could we use it for the next one as well?’ Does it maybe capture something eternally Doctorish, does it have to not be there ever again until Matt appears again, as hopefully one day he will, on some new version of the multi-Doctor story. Are we never going to hear I Am The Doctor again until the 60th? [Laughs] 

If we don’t, then what follows it has to be stronger. I think that, in a way, I Am The Doctor is stronger than the themes Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant had. So, I was thinking those thoughts. [Laughs]

Amy’s Theme - Murray Gold

kitkatarjuaq:

“And do one more thing for me. There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming which she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to sea and fight pirates, she’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived, and save a whale in outer space.

Tell her, this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.”
