ERIC SIDAY / The Sounds Of Now
A companion piece to the previous compilation, The Ultra Sonic Perception (DUAL005), Dual Planet offers a further glimpse into the eccentric world of electronic music innovator Eric Siday. Sounds Of Now is a collection of electronic 'sound logos' and switched-on library cues used in production and broadcast in the 1960 & 70s. Included here are variants of the creepy manipulated synthesizer theme which accompanied the 1964 Screen Gems logo, which was subject to the 2010 documentary The S From Hell, exploring the psychological effects that this haunting piece of music had on a generation of TV watching children. For fans of workshop electronics (Raymond Scott, Suzanne Cianni, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop) as well as synth enthusiasts searching to hear the pioneering sounds created on the early Moog synthesiser.
