New Radio Show Tonight : SF Soundtracks!

Science Fiction Soundscapes : Part 2.
Wednesday 30th October, 9 – 10pm (BST) on Resonance 104.4 FM in London, and live to hear online on : http://www.resonancefm.com
Hosted by James DC, with sound artist Martin A Smith.
Tonight we explore the wonderful and bizarre sonic landscapes of science fiction soundtracks. Starting with some of the cult-classic TV soundtracks of the late 1960’s, like The Prisoner and UFO, through to the 1970’s experimental electronica of  Edward Artemiev for Solaris (1972), and Gerry Goldsmith’s seminal soundtrack to Alien (1979), to the funky lounge-core of Ennio Morricone’s music for Danger: Diabolik (1968). Plus the amazing classical-synthesiser soundtrack by Wendy Carlos for A Clockwork Orange (1972), right up to the recent music by Daft Punk for Tron : Legacy, and much more. We will play tracks from each piece and then analyse and discuss the wider social and cultural context of these iconic soundscapes.
