Preview of Eclectic Method’s SXSW Doctor Who remix

BBC America has released this preview of Eclectic Method‘s remix that will be shown at the upcoming BBC America Roadhouse event on March 9 at 8 p.m. at this year’s SXSW conference in Austin, Texas.  On their blog, Eclectic Method says

Not only is Doctor Who a pioneering TV Show since 1963 but it has also pioneered in music making and generation of new sound effects that permeate our music today. The original theme by Ron Grainer and made by Delia Derbyshire at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop was an exercise in electronic music pioneering. It’s sound has not dated as it took the world a while to catch up with Delia’s techniques of running multiple oscillators and turning faders up and down whilst adjusting the tape speed, something nowadays people automate on a computer.

They go on to mention that the mix will be “Dalek heavy” in honor of Dalek designer Raymond Cusick, who passed away last week.

Daniel is the owner and Managing Editor of Time and The – !. He's been a fan of Doctor Who since watching Tom Baker regenerate into Peter Davison on his local PBS station as a kid. He launched Time and The – ! in 2011 after having the bright (?) idea to watch every Doctor Who story from the beginning and blog about it. (Yeah, he's way behind.)
