Description

Brian Hodgson, Delia Derbyshire, The BBC Radiophonic Workshop - Doctor Who: The Krotons

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/January 1969.

Reviews

“Cleverly lyrical and tonally accountable in its structure, Hodgson’s definitive ‘sound treatment’ skilfully enhances the on-screen drama with dramatic, emotive and chillingly effective ‘cues’… A testament to the imagination and technical ambition of not only Brian Hodgson but of his colleagues collectively known as the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.”

This is proper first-generation Radiophonics, with the workshop having only the most basic of tools from which to make new sci-fi noises. Here Hodgson used the “Crystal Palace”, a clear Perspex box full of electronic circuits and trickery that made interesting simple textures, atmospheres, clangs and ear-splitting oddness – perfect for sliding-door sounds, creeping tensions and machines noises from another world. Sounding somewhere between a musique concrete album and classic minimal experimental electronics from the 60s, this is a really fabulously weird thing, great for the Whovians and anyone else big on strange little plugged-in experiments.
