Hi,

here is an extract of "Another time, another place", one of the scores written by Barry Gray for the 70's TV Show Space : 1999.

A very interesting piece of music, using Violin harmonics ...

Full VSL, mixed in Altiverb.

Another Time another place

Enjoy !

Phil

That sounds great Philippe!  Really excellent performance and mix.  This is for a TV show and yet so much more interesting than 99% of movie scores today.  Barry Gray is such a fantastic composer - the orchestration and handling of motifs and themes is brilliant.

This is well done Philippe.

I must admit that I am not familiar with this composer's music but I'm very impressed by your MIDIstration. This sounds authentic and lifelike.

I'm curious to know how you got a hold of this score?

Philippe can answer that more specifically, however I believe he is doing an official release of this music, which has not been fully recorded for CD previously.  

Barry Gray is probably most famous for his Thunderbirds theme, a great piece along with many others he did.  I feel his style is classic film music along the lines of Max Steiner and Korngold but in the era of 1960-70s TV.  He develops true leitmotif themes and complex orchestrations like those composers.

Though sometimes you have this awesome, ultra-serious and expressive music and there are only weird little puppets on the screen with their strings visible.  Though I love the Gerry Anderson shows, it can be a bit disconcerting.

Thanks William ans Jasensmith for listening.

It's a long term ongoing project so i can't say much for the moment. It's based on original scores.

Best
