The second archive release (& the first on vinyl!) of a Doctor Who soundtrack since the Doctor Who 2005 British TV comeback, featuring a collection of 'special sounds' by British electronic composer Brian Hodgson.

'Doctor Who - The Krotons' is a 4 episode Doctor Who serial first broadcast in weekly parts from 28 December 1968 to 18 January 1969. Brian Hodgson was a member of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop & worked closely with Delia Derbyshire, the seminal figure of English electronic music. As the original sound effects creator for Doctor Who he was responsible for the chilling Dalek voices & the powerhouse sound of the Tardis lifting off. Brian created The Tardis sound in 1963, running a back door key for his mother's house along the bass string of a dismembered piano and treating it electronically. The sound of The Tardis lift-off is still in use. Brian comments: "I spent a long time in planning the Tardis sound, I wanted a sound that seemed to be travelling in two directions at once; coming and going at the same time." The collection displays Brian’s highly innovative techniques that, together with Delia Derbyshire’s experiments in modes and tunings, became the staple of British electronica.
