The Krotons - Original TV Soundtrack

Silva Screen have announced details and cover art of the release of The Krotons: Original Television Soundtrack - click on the image for a bigger version. It features "Special Sounds" by Brian Hodgson and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and is available on CD/download on May 13 and on 10" Vinyl from May 24.

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 The Krotons, broadcast in December 1968/January 1969.
