Dual Planet Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
A previously unreleased Doctor Who score mastered from the original tapes. Includes additional electronic tracks from Don Harper's catalogue and music featured in George Romero's Dawn of the Dead. A collection of Horror-Electronics, supernatural soundscapes and sinister library muzak from Australian composer Don Harper. Centring on a previously unreleased score for the 1968 Doctor Who series The Invasion (a dark otherworldly sci-fi jazz suite) Cold Worlds is also a focus on the electronic music of this largely unsung composer. Like many Australian film composers (Ron Grainer, Dudley Simpson, Don Banks) Don Harper based himself in the UK during the 1960s and subsequently found employment at the BBC and other British film and library companies.
A fascinating collection of experimental 1960s electronics here. Eric Siday was an early pioneer of the Moog synthesizer as well as musique concrete and extended technique, and integrated these disciplines into film and soundtrack music. This collection brings together a series of eerie electronic miniatures which originally came out on 10" 78rpm discs, some of which were featured in '60s episodes of Doctor Who! One for the Derbyshire/Ciani fans.
Andrew Thomas Wilson's compositions are cold but gentle, bringing about the inevitable conflicts of chilling instrumental music with light, synth-pop oriented sounds. Basically, there's a lot of synth, used in a few different disciplines -- and it always sounds like an icicle is being dangled above your head. 'The Chain Reaction Soundtrack' is an understated gem in the history of electronic film soundtracks, showing off Wilson's ability to tame one of those pesky modular synths in the midst of an apocalypse.

Aminadav Aloni’s soundtrack to the film Once is highly sought-after by collectors, so it is time to get scrabbling in order to secure one of the only 500 “one-time-only” re-pressing of the vinyl. The film itself has no surviving prints, so this is as near as you’ll get to its wonder. Spooky electronics and traditional Jewish melodies, very interesting.
Abstractum is a revelatory journey into the previously unreleased experiments of Australian composer Val Stephen. As a medical anaesthetist turned electronic musician, Stephen crafted a range of playful takes on musique concrete using his VCS3 synth. Some works date back to the 50’s. Out on vinyl LP from Dual Planet.
A second compilation of the remarkable work of Eric Siday. Sounds Of Now follows The Ultra Sonic Perception and presents a range of his creepy ‘sound logos’ from the 60’s and 70’s. Sure to be a trip down memory lane for some and just a trip for others. Out on vinyl LP from Dual Planet.
New vinyl and CD release of Brian May's score for the cult classic Austrialian film 'Turkey Shoot' which became notorious and released under various different titles including my personal favourite 'Blood Camp Thatcher'. It predated later films like Battle Royale and The Hunger Games, the electronic score is akin to that of some of John Carpenter's renowned work.
