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 15 – Series 23, Part I – The Mysterious Planets of Dominic Glynn – Part II – Dominic Glynn Interview

Adventures in Time Space and Music

In this episode we’ll be looking at the music of Doctor Who composer Dominic Glynn focusing on his work on Series 23, the Trial of a Time Lord. In this episode we’ll be featuring the second part in a series focusing on the work of Doctor Who composer Dominic Glynn, with an interview recorded the 6th of December, 2010.

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

ABOUT YOUR HOST: 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.

ABOUT OUR SERIES GUEST: Dominic Glynn is one of the world’s most prolific composers of production music. His work has featured worldwide in hit TV shows including ‘The Simpsons’, ‘Red Dwarf’ and ‘Dead Like Me’ and in movies like ‘Kevin & Perry Go Large’ and Eddie Murphy/Jeff Goldblum comedy ‘Holy Man’.

Dominic began his career writing incidental music for BBC TV’s “Doctor Who” in the late 1980s, and is one of a select number of composers to have re-arranged the show’s iconic theme tune. In the 90s he continued to compose for a number of BBC shows, and after a series of leftfield underground dance record releases, he formed his own independent record label. Today he can often be seen DJing for ‘The Big Chill’. Live work has included performing at London’s Festival Hall with pedal-steel guitar legend BJ Cole, and the electronica/jazz hybrid project ‘Cybajaz’.

Dominic has composed the score for a series of short supernatural film dramas, screened at London’s Frightfest horror film festival, as well as music for two contemporary dance films. More recently, he has composed the score to upcoming British feature film ‘Bad Day’ starring Claire Goose and Donna Air, as well as a new radio revival of sci-fi classic ‘Blake’s 7’.

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.

DEDICATION: This series of episodes are dedicated to all of the composers who have worked on Doctor Who for nearly 50 years – we thank you for the terror, the magic, and the joy you have brought generations of young people around the world. Cheers to all of you: Mark Ayres, Richard Rodney Bennett, Carey Blyton, Geoffrey Burgon, Tristram Cary, Malcolm Clarke, John Debney, Delia Derbyshire, Marcus Dods, Louis Febre, Jonathan Gibbs, Dominic Glynn, Murray Gold, Ron Grainer, Don Harper, Richard Hartley, Brian Hodgson, Peter Howell, Raymond Jones, Norman Kay, Paddy Kingsland, John Lewis, Roger Limb, Malcolm Lockyer, Keff McCulloch, Bill McGuffie, Stanley Myers, Elizabeth Parker, Humphrey Searle, Dudley Simpson & John Sponsler.
