    As some of you already know, he’s recently joined in with this microblogging lark.

    On my @classicfm scifi music show this Sat I’m playing my @RedDwarfHQ Series 1 Opening theme and the classical piece that inspired it..

    Here’s the Classic FM website’s page on his programme.

    And also: http://twitter.com/Howard_Goodall/status/180036733675638785

    Talking of @RedDwarfHQ I am thinking of making digital remasters of the analogue recordings of the original themes for download. Good idea?

    Yes – very good idea!

    I wonder if this is a hint that he’ll be working on the new series? Or is that just wishful thinking on my part?

    No chance.

    maybe not producing NEW content, but maybe they could be sorting out the rights issues surrounding the used cues.

    Maybe those new digital masters can be used in RDX…

    It’s a shame he can’t return. I love the work he did for VII.

    My favourite bit of Goodall goodness : closing theme to Gunmen. Utterly sublime.

    I’m really not an Ouroboros fan. But I really love Howard’s music used in this episode…

    His music is in the top 3 good things about VII. The other 2 being…Craig’s performance in general and…that huge wind tunnel set in Tikka.

    That huge wind tunnel set wasn’t a set. It was a huge wind tunnel.

    Well, that just makes it even more impressive.

    Plus, the fact that they actually went out and got a tank.

    The majority of that episode’s music was library music wasn’t it?

    Not my absolute favourite (there’s stuff from series I-II that I prefer), but definitely up there. Outstanding piece. Gives me shivers.

    The Observation Dome music would be a close second. Lovely. HE NEEDS TO COME BACK.

    >that huge wind tunnel set in Tikka

    …is fucking pointless. “Ooh look at us in a big wind-tunnel!” And? It’s a fantastic location but what’s the point of it since all they do in there is mill about? Was all that bollocks about Starbug expanding due to the paradox to justify these daft locations, or to explain Duct Soup? Either way; meh.

    For some reason, I was convinced it was a Goodall piece. But I remembered somebody asking on our forum ages ago and looking into it back then. And I was remembering incorrectly as usual….

    I originally found the answer on TOS forum where somebody else had also been asking the same question. According to what Andrew told them, it is ‘Lost in Space’ by Nigel Bates. There was a link to a download which now appears to be broken…

    The Rimmer graveyard planet music in Stoke Me a Clipper gets me every time. Observation Dome music is a very close second.

    Sounds promising. :) EDIT: Sorry, can’t seem to link on here to the Tweet in question – an exchange between Doug and Howard Goodall.

    That’s incidental.

    @Danny Stephenson. Cheers for the link. I’d forgotten how much liked this and had never listened to the other stuff….It makes me want to go write sci-fi just so I can add a soundtrack to it…

    Please please please let this work out with Goodall!!!

    His involvement = general excellence.

    I’m hoping they come to some arrangement. New Goodall work, or even re-workings of old cues to satisfy the rights issues.

    Monday…

    Just listened to this now. Seemed to be a different recording of the Red Dwarf Opening used for this…

    That’s what I thought, but all he said about it was that it was him playing it.

    What time Is the Red Dwarf segment?

    It’s right at the start. It’s the second piece of music played.

    WOW – what shit-ass version of the Red Dwarf theme was that?

    #115985

    Mind you – that’s probably something he’s recently re-done, as you might notice that the DVD music cue Is not an original source cue but the recording from the episode audio. Has the original been misplaced since It’s re-use in the remastering?

    …I suppose if any good news had come from the call to Goodall, Doug would have shared it by now?

    Not necessarily. Have patience…….

    Bearing in mind that a positive responce would still need contracts signed etc, I’d say it’s still early days at the moment.
