ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC IS A PROUD MEMBER OF THE DOCTOR WHO PODCAST ALLIANCE: http://www.doctorwhopodcastalliance.org/

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS – DR. LOU: I am an Associate Professor of Musicology at the University of Nevada, Reno, where I write about and teach classes on avant-garde and popular music of the post-war era, focusing on musics that bridge the categories of high and low culture in society through media technology. In other words, I write about pretty music made on complicated equipment used in television and radio. Most of my stuff tends to be about music in the UK, although I have also written about American science fiction. My most recent publication is a history of the BBC’s electronic music studio, the Radiophonic Workshop, for Oxford University Press. Before becoming chair of the music department in Reno, I taught classes about television music, film music, music and gender, and popular music, as well as the more standard classical music history courses. After getting my undergraduate degree in singing from the University of Iowa, I spent a few hazy years bartending in nightclubs, listening to lots of dance music, and traveling as much as possible to England. Eventually, I decided I needed a career and did a Masters degree in musicology at the University of Texas at Austin, writing a thesis on music in Doctor Who. After that I moved to Los Angeles and did a PhD at UCLA in musicology, studying with Susan McClary and Philip Brett, among other amazing scholars. At UCLA I wrote what would become the first half of my Radiophonic history as my dissertation.

I also, like Dr. Phil, am a performer of early music. But unlike him, for me it is purely a dilettante pursuit. I have sung early music since 1989, and at UCLA was the director of their early music ensemble, Musica Humana. Upon moving to Reno, I founded REM (Reno Early Music), Reno’s premiere early music group. Actually, we are Reno’s only early music group. But it’s fun. I also run the Reno Time Team, a local group making our way through all of classic Doctor Who.

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS – DR. PHILL: My name is Dr. Phillip Serna – you can call me Dr. Phill as many of my colleagues, friends and students do. I’m a performer and teacher here in the Chicago area where I received my Master & Doctoral degrees in Music at Northwestern University. On double bass I perform solo, chamber, orchestral and contemporary literature. I am also a performer of Early Music on viols – or violas da gamba – a family of bowed guitars that were popular in Europe from the 15th through the late 18th centuries.

On double bass, I perform with many ensembles including the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra, Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, Illinois Symphony Orchestra, New Philharmonic Orchestra, Northbrook Symphony Orchestra, the Northshore Camerata, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Memphis Symphony Orchestra, and many others. In Early Music, I regularly perform on violas da gamba (treble viol, tenor viol and bass viol), period double bass/ violone and vielle with modern orchestras such as the Concord Chamber Orchestra and the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, as well as with period instrument ensembles such as Ars Antigua, the Bach Collegium of Fort Wayne, the Callipygian Players, the Chicago Early Music Consort, Duo fantaisie en Echo, the Madison Bach Musicians, the Newberry Consort, the Oriana Singers, the Second City Musick, the Spirit of Gambo – a Chicago Consort of Viols, the Third Coast Viols and many others. In performance, I’ve appeared on Chicago’s 98.7FM WFMT, Wisconsin Public Radio and Milwaukee Public Radio. My Early Music Outreach program ‘Viols in Our Schools’ was the recipient of the 2010 Early Music America Outreach Award, which honors ensembles or individual artists for excellence in early music outreach and/or educational projects for children or adults.

Episode 36 – Series 14, Part I – The Many Masques [of Mandragora] of Dudley Simpson

In this episode we’ll be looking at the music of Doctor’s composer Dudley Simpson, as well as the use of period stock music in Doctor Who. Here we will examine Serial 4M – Story 86 – The Masque of Mandragora, a 4-part serial originally broadcast between the 4th and 25th of September 1976 on BBC One.

NOTE: This episode aired as a segment on the HOO ON WHO PODCAST on Monday 3, October, 2011 – http://hooonwho.libsyn.com/episode-45-enhanced-the-masque-of-mandragora

DEDICATION – Dr. Phill – I would like to dedicate this episode to my brother Fred “Count Federico” Serna, in honour of his birthday, to whom I really owe a great deal for introducing me to Doctor Who as a youth in the late 1980s. Being a great influence on my career in Early Music, this particular story always had a special place in our household as one that was equally enjoyed by myself and both of my brothers. This is why I found this particular episode was a labour of love, and a joy to research. Cheers to you on your birthday, and may you always enjoy this unorthodox love-letter to our youths each and every year on your birthday.

ABOUT OUR THEME: The theme to ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC is a remix by Isaac Arsenault. Isaac started mashingup music in the winter of ’09, After reading Jordan Roseman’s “Audio Mashup Construction Kit.” Working with sound Equipment and being technical leader for two bands he opened his taste for music by studying it mathematically and learning the science behind it.

Episode 34 – Series 16, Part V – Dudley Simpson and the Power of Kroll

In this episode we’ll be looking at the music of the Doctor’s composer Dudley Simpson focusing on his work on Series 16, the Key to Time. In this episode we will look at his work on Serial 5E – Story 102 – The Power of Kroll, a 4-part story which originally aired between the 23rd of December, 1978 and the 13th of Jannuary, 1979 on BBC One.

ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC IS A PROUD MEMBER OF THE DOCTOR WHO PODCAST ALLIANCE: http://www.doctorwhopodcastalliance.org/

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS – DR. LOU: I am an Associate Professor of Musicology at the University of Nevada, Reno, where I write about and teach classes on avant-garde and popular music of the post-war era, focusing on musics that bridge the categories of high and low culture in society through media technology. In other words, I write about pretty music made on complicated equipment used in television and radio. Most of my stuff tends to be about music in the UK, although I have also written about American science fiction. My most recent publication is a history of the BBC’s electronic music studio, the Radiophonic Workshop, for Oxford University Press. Before becoming chair of the music department in Reno, I taught classes about television music, film music, music and gender, and popular music, as well as the more standard classical music history courses. After getting my undergraduate degree in singing from the University of Iowa, I spent a few hazy years bartending in nightclubs, listening to lots of dance music, and traveling as much as possible to England. Eventually, I decided I needed a career and did a Masters degree in musicology at the University of Texas at Austin, writing a thesis on music in Doctor Who. After that I moved to Los Angeles and did a PhD at UCLA in musicology, studying with Susan McClary and Philip Brett, among other amazing scholars. At UCLA I wrote what would become the first half of my Radiophonic history as my dissertation.

I also, like Dr. Phil, am a performer of early music. But unlike him, for me it is purely a dilettante pursuit. I have sung early music since 1989, and at UCLA was the director of their early music ensemble, Musica Humana.

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS – DR. PHILL: My name is Dr. Phillip Serna – you can call me Dr. Phill as many of my colleagues, friends and students do. I’m a performer and teacher here in the Chicago area where I received my Master & Doctoral degrees in Music at Northwestern University. On double bass I perform solo, chamber, orchestral and contemporary literature. I am also a performer of Early Music on viols – or violas da gamba – a family of bowed guitars that were popular in Europe from the 15th through the late 18th centuries.

On double bass, I perform with many ensembles including the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra, Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, Illinois Symphony Orchestra, New Philharmonic Orchestra, Northbrook Symphony Orchestra, the Northshore Camerata, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Memphis Symphony Orchestra, and many others. In Early Music, I regularly perform on violas da gamba (treble viol, tenor viol and bass viol), period double bass/ violone and vielle with modern orchestras such as the Concord Chamber Orchestra and the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, as well as with period instrument ensembles such as Ars Antigua, the Bach Collegium of Fort Wayne, the Callipygian Players, the Chicago Early Music Consort, Duo fantaisie en Echo, the Madison Bach Musicians, the Newberry Consort, the Oriana Singers, the Second City Musick, the Spirit of Gambo – a Chicago Consort of Viols, the Third Coast Viols and many others. In performance, I’ve appeared on Chicago’s 98.7FM WFMT, Wisconsin Public Radio and Milwaukee Public Radio. My Early Music Outreach program ‘Viols in Our Schools’ was the recipient of the 2010 Early Music America Outreach Award, which honors ensembles or individual artists for excellence in early music outreach and/or educational projects for children or adults.

Episode 30 – Series 16, Part I – Dudley Simpson and the Ribos Operation

In this episode we’ll be looking at the music of the Doctor’s composer Dudley Simpson focusing on his work on Series 16, the Key to Time. We will examine his work on Serial 5A – Story 98 – The Ribos Operation, a 4-part story which originally aired between the 2nd of September and the 23rd of September 1978 on BBC One.

ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC IS A PROUD MEMBER OF THE DOCTOR WHO PODCAST ALLIANCE: http://www.doctorwhopodcastalliance.org/

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS – DR. LOU: I am an Associate Professor of Musicology at the University of Nevada, Reno, where I write about and teach classes on avant-garde and popular music of the post-war era, focusing on musics that bridge the categories of high and low culture in society through media technology. In other words, I write about pretty music made on complicated equipment used in television and radio. Most of my stuff tends to be about music in the UK, although I have also written about American science fiction. My most recent publication is a history of the BBC’s electronic music studio, the Radiophonic Workshop, for Oxford University Press. Before becoming chair of the music department in Reno, I taught classes about television music, film music, music and gender, and popular music, as well as the more standard classical music history courses. After getting my undergraduate degree in singing from the University of Iowa, I spent a few hazy years bartending in nightclubs, listening to lots of dance music, and traveling as much as possible to England. Eventually, I decided I needed a career and did a Masters degree in musicology at the University of Texas at Austin, writing a thesis on music in Doctor Who. After that I moved to Los Angeles and did a PhD at UCLA in musicology, studying with Susan McClary and Philip Brett, among other amazing scholars. At UCLA I wrote what would become the first half of my Radiophonic history as my dissertation.

I also, like Dr. Phil, am a performer of early music. But unlike him, for me it is purely a dilettante pursuit. I have sung early music since 1989, and at UCLA was the director of their early music ensemble, Musica Humana. Upon moving to Reno, I founded REM (Reno Early Music), Reno’s premiere early music group. Actually, we are Reno’s only early music group. But it’s fun.

ABOUT YOUR GUEST CO-HOST – DAVID HOOIE:  David Hooie is one of the hosts of Hoo On Who, the Doctor Who podcast dedicated to the review of classic series DVDs in no particular order.  David began podcasting in 2009 after listening to other shows that seemed to focus more on the new series of Doctor Who and his interest in the classic series, especially the ever growing collection of DVDs on his shelves that he hadn’t watched yet!  As someone who has had a mic in front of him most of his life, David loves to talk as many of his listeners can attest!  After a little over a year on his own, David brought his eldest son, Martin (Marty) on as his permanent companion and together they continue to work their way through the classic series library.  In his spare time, David considers himself first and foremost a husband and father to his 3 children: Marty, Alicia and Ian, he enjoys running and playing video games on his PS3 and Xbox 360.  For information about Hoo On Who, visit http://www.hooonwho.com/.

ABOUT OUR SERIES GUEST – MARK AYRES: Mark Ayres was born in London and educated in Tunbridge Wells (where he spent most of his childhood) and at the University of Keele (studying Film Music, Composition, and Electronic Music with Peter Dickinson, Roger Marsh, and the late Tim Souster), from where he graduated with a BSc (Hons.) in Music and Electronics.

While at school, Mark composed music for stage productions and amateur movies, formed a band with class-mates (“The Electric Ferrits” – sic!), and was an occasional flute player with the West Kent Youth Orchestra. At University he continued writing for theatrical productions and amateur film, and formed rock band Random Access.

In 1982, Mark joined Britain’s fledgling independent Breakfast Television station TVam as a sound engineer. Over the subsequent 5 years he worked on a variety of programmes from Good Morning Britain to Roland Rat, as well as on secondment to companies such as Anglia Television, working as sound assistant on shows including Cover Her Face. He used the opportunity to make contacts and started writing jingles and idents for video productions and television programmes before finally going freelance as a composer and sound designer in 1987.

Since then he has provided incidental music for some of the UK’s top drama shows including Rockcliffe’s Babies, Casualty, and three full scores for Doctor Who. His work has been heard on documentaries and magazine series, and provides the signature for Japanese Satellite Television. An ongoing collaboration with Computer Artist William Latham has produced a number of acclaimed short films and CD-ROM’s, and he has also contributed to the De Wolfe music library.

In 1995 Mark was hired as composer on director Scott Michell’s first feature film, The Innocent Sleep (starring Michael Gambon, Rupert Graves, Annabella Sciorra, and Franco Nero), for which he provided a full orchestral score with solo voice performances by popular soprano Lesley Garrett. The soundtrack recording was recommended in the 1997 & 1998 editions of the Gramophone Film Music Good CD Guide.

As a composer, arranger, producer, or performer, Mark’s name appears on over 100 Compact Disc releases, including many of Silva Screen Records’ “Digital Film Scores” series.

Mark’s versatility lies in his being able to switch from full orchestral scoring through arrangement and production to innovative electronic music realisation, sound design, and multimedia programming. He has recently scored a short children’s film for Carlton Television and a satirical Current Affairs pilot for Channel Four. He is currently working on further albums for Silva Screen, various solo projects, and developing feature film and television ideas with Scott Michell.

He is married with two sons.

Mark Ayres is a member of the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters, serving on the Media Music Executive and New Technologies Committees.

ABOUT OUR THEME: The theme to ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC is a remix by Isaac Arsenault. Isaac started mashingup music in the winter of ’09, After reading Jordan Roseman’s “Audio Mashup Construction Kit.” Working with sound Equipment and being technical leader for two bands he opened his taste for music by studying it mathematically and learning the science behind it. To find out more about Isaac’s work, visit http://www.twitter.com/drautobob.

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS – DR. LOU: I am an Associate Professor of Musicology at the University of Nevada, Reno, where I write about and teach classes on avant-garde and popular music of the post-war era, focusing on musics that bridge the categories of high and low culture in society through media technology. In other words, I write about pretty music made on complicated equipment used in television and radio. Most of my stuff tends to be about music in the UK, although I have also written about American science fiction. My most recent publication is a history of the BBC’s electronic music studio, the Radiophonic Workshop, for Oxford University Press. Before becoming chair of the music department in Reno, I taught classes about television music, film music, music and gender, and popular music, as well as the more standard classical music history courses. After getting my undergraduate degree in singing from the University of Iowa, I spent a few hazy years bartending in nightclubs, listening to lots of dance music, and traveling as much as possible to England. Eventually, I decided I needed a career and did a Masters degree in musicology at the University of Texas at Austin, writing a thesis on music in Doctor Who. After that I moved to Los Angeles and did a PhD at UCLA in musicology, studying with Susan McClary and Philip Brett, among other amazing scholars. At UCLA I wrote what would become the first half of my Radiophonic history as my dissertation.

I also, like Dr. Phil, am a performer of early music. But unlike him, for me it is purely a dilettante pursuit. I have sung early music since 1989, and at UCLA was the director of their early music ensemble, Musica Humana. Upon moving to Reno, I founded REM (Reno Early Music), Reno’s premiere early music group. Actually, we are Reno’s only early music group. But it’s fun. I also run the Reno Time Team, a local group making our way through all of classic Doctor Who.
