Episode 4 story details

As with any teenager making that break from home things were quite emotional this episode. As she leaves Gallifrey for perhaps the last time I used what is a rather epic piece Land of the Wizard by Per Kiilstofte of Machinimasound.com licensed under creative commons license 4.0 In discussions with the script writers last year we decided on something reminiscent of the sweeping violins and drums of  This is Gallifrey by Murray Gold as a theme for our doctor and i hope that piece fits the bill – you will hear it again in episdodes 7/8 as Terry’s hero theme too since he makes that transition as well from his comfy ‘home with mum’ life to saving a planet.

I’ve organised most of the music we use in a soundcloud playlist.  – you can hear snatches of Tempting Secrets by Kevin Macleod in the matrix, Music for Manatees by Kevin Macleod, epic in length at 17  minutes, Dark Conspiracy (Izzy’s theme) and Anticipation by David Fesliyan

Also I took one freesound field recording of the yucatan full of pretty bird and chirpy insects , reversed it and applied Paulstretch  factor 5/0.25 voila – alieny jungle matrix ambience. but it sounded absolutely frightful on small speakers over the radio via the Tunein App mo idea why but I have done away with it for Thursday’s broadcast and will never stretch anything again.

Get ready for the Nixi!

Episode 7 The vortex of the Nix pt 1 premiering on  October 30th World Audio Drama Day

Goodness! How happy a coincidence is that – on a day celebrating THE radio drama show of shows – Orson Well’s War of the Worlds broadcast. Hard science crossed with heroes and monsters, all set within the worldly concerns of our everyday life experience – isn’t that what science fiction is all about?

Spoiler alert

The Nixi are a product of a brainstorming session at the Deloraine craft fair a year ago with some members of Deloraine nanomo write-in group – in a faerie shop no less.  All I had at the time was Adam’s brief to crash the Doc and her stowaway into a waterworld and my idea to bring some cutting edge hard science- the Electric universe, into two 15 min episodes. Brain cells supported by coffee and cake and good company came up with rat like race of scavengers who live on the desert world of Nix, and have a unique sound. They go “nixixixix ” They are bipedal man sized creatures insulated with thick scales that can also cover their eyes and ears when needed. Rather like certain knights who say ni! but lacking a shrubbery 🙂 Cue the coloured pencils and young Bridgette Ewings created Pelham the Brobrean seamonster  for us as the plotline started to unfurl like this –

( It sounds amazing btw his voice is also a whiteboard marker! see the credits below) Then just integrate huge tech info dump into the crayola somehow.

No historical characters were harmed in the making of this play

Our producer was at first rather horrified at the disparagement of Einstein’s work – after all time travel, big bangs and blackholes abound in the fictional world of the Doctor. Luckily we don’t have to budge the ultra massive bulk of academia to shift science fiction plots to the next level and leave some of our old tropes behind -that’s the fun of writing near future hard scifi. The science of electrically structured water that is used by the Brobreans to build their Dome is real enough, as is the Birkeland Current, Safire  and Wallace Thornhill ( with his permission of course! ) – although he hasn’t invented a flux ‘capacitator’ ….. yet…… http://www.thespaceshow.com/show/16-aug-2016/broadcast-2759-wal-thornhill

reward

I can hardly believe we have been going at this for over a year thanks to everyone who works hard and those that support us all your patience and hard work will play off and be rewarded

grain of salt

so I got my monthly news letter from city park radio and on it states that upon confirmation the episodes will start on Sunday the 18th I want to strees about the fact that the confirmation has yet to happen, so take this with a grain of salt until confirmation

production values

when this goes to air i want people to realise how many hours we all put into it and understand that the production values that can be achieved by a community of volunteers ran program, the time constraits thre in and the fact that none of us have done this sort of production work before, so if something isn’t as good as what you think, be my guest to try and orginise your own episodes

mis-calculation

the NTFA leauge finishes on Sunday the 3rd of Sept this means we could possibly broudcast on Monday the 4th of Sept, how-ever it seems i mis-calculated on a post earlyer saying the latest we could go to air is Monday the 19th of Sept well its actuly Monday the 26th of Sept (1 week later/7 days)

re-orginising episodes

i was thinking abot abit of swiching arund on stories for season 2, i was thinking of moving story 8 to story 6’s slot, and either moving the fomer story 6 to 8’s slot or moving it into season 3 and using one of the stories that has been so healy reqested into 8’s slot, what do you guys think

male doctor-verse

the male doctor universe, is the alternate universe that is inhabited by people who are the opisate gender to those in the female doctor universe ie Terry whom is a boy in the female doctor-verse has a female counter part (Terri) whom exists in the male doctor-verse, the young lady the doctor helps return to her to her universe is the male docotr’s universe as such at the same time it seems the male doctor has helped her counter part, a young man return to the female doctor’s universe there are belived to be more universes this is the multi-verse theroy

ideas & listenership

the ideas keep coming and thats great but, the question is is it going to draw in and keeep listeners, on the first point yes i belive doing some of these ideas in stories will certinly bring people who are interested in those type of ideas in for those episodes, however its hard to say that they’d stay unless we kept offfering those ideas, yet we need to try other ideas to get other people who have other intrests, pluss we want to be original not juast doing stuff like things that have alreaddy been done
