ALL VIOL MUSIC PERFORMED BY PHILLIP W. SERNA FROM THE GAMBACAST & THE RADIO RASSILON CHRISTMAS SONG APPEARS COURTESY OF LEESON FISCHER AND HARRY MEDIUM OF THE RADIO RASSILON PODCAST.

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.

Warren Ellis Writer, The Authority / Planetary / Red

“…is there even a way to begin describing the quality of the soundtrack? Every review of The Minister of Chance works out the same: it’s fantastic… the actors are brilliant…the story is gripping…this pioneering radiophonic drama has us spellbound.”

Episode 12 – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Paddy Kingsland – Part III – Paddy Kingsland Interview Part II

Adventures in Time Space and Music

In this episode we’ll be featuring the second part of an interview with BBC Radiophonic Composer Paddy Kingsland with guest co-host Tony Gallichan of the Flashing Blade Podcast joining me at the central console. Recorded the 9th 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 GUEST CO-HOST: Adventurer, gourmet cook and inventor of Venetian blinds for legs, Mr. Tony Gallichan has also been known to host podcasts, including The Flashing Blade. Musician, composer, cat lover, computer gamer; these are all things of which Tony has heard. In his spare time he contemplates Belgium. For more information on Tony’s work on the widely popular Flashing Blade Podcast, visit http://www.flashingblade.org.uk/.

ABOUT OUR SERIES GUEST: Patrick ‘Paddy’ Kingsland is a composer of electronic music best known for his incidental music for science fiction series on BBC radio and television whilst working at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. He joined the BBC as a tape editor before moving on to become a studio manager for BBC Radio 1. In 1970 he joined the Radiophonic Workshop where he remained until 1981. His initial work was mostly signature tunes for BBC radio and TV programmes before going on to record incidental music for programmes including The Changes, two versions of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: the second radio series and the TV adaptation, as well as several serials of Doctor Who. His work on the latter series included incidental music for the following serials: Meglos, Full Circle, State of Decay, Logopolis, Castrovalva, The Visitation, Mawdryn Undead and Frontios.

Other well known series which contained music composed by Paddy Kingsland are Around the World in 80 Days and Pole to Pole, both travel series by Michael Palin. Paddy Kingsland also composed music for many schools’ television series including Words and Pictures, Rat-a-tat-tat, Watch, Numbercrew, Storytime, English Express, Music Makers, Hotch Potch House and the Look and Read stories “Joe and the Sheep Rustlers” and “The Boy from Space”. Since leaving the BBC, composed music for the KPM music library, television, commercials and corporate videos. He also owns his own studio, PK Studios. He is currently composing the music for the CITV series “Blips” produced by Ragdoll Productions.

In 1973, Fourth Dimension, a compilation of his early signature tune work for the Radiophonic Workshop, was released and in 2002 his incidental scores for the Doctor Who serials “Meglos” and “Full Circle” featured as part of the Doctor Who at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop compilation series. Eight albums of his library music work have been issued by KPM.

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: These 3 episodes are dedicated to one of my oldest friends, Devon Maloy. He’s the individual who introduced me to BBC Television’s adaptation of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and therefore Paddy Kingsland’s music. As a friend who shared countless campaigns in role-playing games, endless hours of Doctor Who, and has always been a great support and inspiration for me, these episodes are for you.

Episode 11 – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Paddy Kingsland – Part II – Paddy Kingsland Interview Part I

Adventures in Time Space and Music

In this episode we’ll be featuring the first part of an interview with BBC Radiophonic Composer Paddy Kingsland with guest co-host Tony Gallichan of the Flashing Blade Podcast joining me at the central console. Recorded the 9th 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 GUEST CO-HOST: Adventurer, gourmet cook and inventor of Venetian blinds for legs, Mr. Tony Gallichan has also been known to host podcasts, including The Flashing Blade. Musician, composer, cat lover, computer gamer; these are all things of which Tony has heard. In his spare time he contemplates Belgium. For more information on Tony’s work on the widely popular Flashing Blade Podcast, visit http://www.flashingblade.org.uk/.

ABOUT OUR SERIES GUEST: Patrick ‘Paddy’ Kingsland is a composer of electronic music best known for his incidental music for science fiction series on BBC radio and television whilst working at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. He joined the BBC as a tape editor before moving on to become a studio manager for BBC Radio 1. In 1970 he joined the Radiophonic Workshop where he remained until 1981. His initial work was mostly signature tunes for BBC radio and TV programmes before going on to record incidental music for programmes including The Changes, two versions of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: the second radio series and the TV adaptation, as well as several serials of Doctor Who. His work on the latter series included incidental music for the following serials: Meglos, Full Circle, State of Decay, Logopolis, Castrovalva, The Visitation, Mawdryn Undead and Frontios.

Other well known series which contained music composed by Paddy Kingsland are Around the World in 80 Days and Pole to Pole, both travel series by Michael Palin. Paddy Kingsland also composed music for many schools’ television series including Words and Pictures, Rat-a-tat-tat, Watch, Numbercrew, Storytime, English Express, Music Makers, Hotch Potch House and the Look and Read stories “Joe and the Sheep Rustlers” and “The Boy from Space”. Since leaving the BBC, composed music for the KPM music library, television, commercials and corporate videos. He also owns his own studio, PK Studios. He is currently composing the music for the CITV series “Blips” produced by Ragdoll Productions.

In 1973, Fourth Dimension, a compilation of his early signature tune work for the Radiophonic Workshop, was released and in 2002 his incidental scores for the Doctor Who serials “Meglos” and “Full Circle” featured as part of the Doctor Who at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop compilation series. Eight albums of his library music work have been issued by KPM.

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: These 3 episodes are dedicated to one of my oldest friends, Devon Maloy. He’s the individual who introduced me to BBC Television’s adaptation of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and therefore Paddy Kingsland’s music. As a friend who shared countless campaigns in role-playing games, endless hours of Doctor Who, and has always been a great support and inspiration for me, these episodes are for you.

SPECIAL THANKS: Special thanks go to our guest co-host Tony Gallichan for the extensive audio editing and restoration he completed on the interview. His expertise, support and constructive criticism has gone a long way to help this show improve by leaps and bounds.

Episode 1 – Introductions

Adventures in Time Space and Music

Hosted by Dr. Lou & Dr. Phill, this podcast will sample music from the almost 50 year history of Doctor Who, discussing and debating the technical minutiae involved in the music, how it relates to the story, as well as explore the varied composers and musicians who have worked on the show.

“…I’ve been listening to all the podcasts, and just wanted to say what a fantastic series of shows. Thoroughly enjoyed them all, and learnt a lot of stuff I didn’t know about my fellow Who composers! Nice work!”

– Dominic Glynn, freelance composer on Doctor Who, 1986-1989 (The Mysterious Planet, The Ultimate Foe, The Happiness Patrol, Dragonfire & Survival)

UPCOMING GUESTS INCLUDE: 1980s Doctor Who Composers Mark Ayres & Dominic Glynn, BBC Radiophonic Workshop composers Peter Howell, Paddy Kingsland & Roger Limb; Big Finish composers Nicholas Briggs, Matthew Cochrane, Nigel Fairs and Alastair Lock, Doctor Who authors Simon Guerrier and Robert Shearman; as well as others including Toby Hadoke of Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf, Doctor Who Script Editor Gary Russell and podcasters from shows including the Doctor Who Podcast, the Flashing Blade Podcast, Hoo on Who, Radio Free Skaro and the Minute Doctor Who Podcast.

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. For more information, visit http://www.violsinourschools.org/About.html or http://www.phillipwserna.com/.

ABOUT OUR OPENING THEME: The opening theme to ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC is a remix by Phillip Serna of the Well-Tempered Schism’s arrangement of Murray Gold’s theme ‘I Am The Doctor’ for the Eleventh Doctor. What happens when a few musicians who are also Whovians get together? Let your senses be stimulated by the results at this well-tempered presentation… Your companions for this adventure across the auditory universe will be Andrew Edwards (composer and pianist – who composed for Big Finish’s “The Wanderer”), Dr. Phillip W. Serna (bassist and gambist – also known for his Podcast “Adventures in Time, Space and Music”) with harpist & arranger Annette Bjorling. Encounter some fan-favorites and other themes of our beloved TV-series, and of some spin-offs. To find out more about the Well-Tempered Schism, visit http://www.welltemperedchism.com/.

ABOUT OUR CLOSING THEME: The closing theme to ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC is a remix by Phillip Serna of our original version 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.
