ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I fell in love with the series Dr. Who for the same reason that, again and again, I fall in love with music. Both the Doctor and music give us the opportunity to experience time in radically different ways. Both explore communication beyond the limits of any single language. Both explore the boundaries and potential of what it means to be human.

So it naturally follows that the Doctor- triangle virtuoso in Bizet’s Carmen, hands three and four of Schubert’s "Fantasia in F minor for piano, four hands", whose TARDIS has been known to transform into a pump organ, and who travels to the most dangerous places armed only with his wits, two hearts, and his ever-present sonic screwdriver- could serve as a wealth of inspiration for musical ideas.

While enjoying the BBC series I have, as I am sure most Whovians have done, considered where in all of time and space I would travel given the opportunity to be one of the Doctor’s companions. I would love to hear in person how Bach himself tuned his klavier, the instrumentation Hildegard of Bingen used to accompany her plainsong, to hear the Iliad or the Odyssey as Homer sang them, to hear the harmonies Carolan used on his bronze-strung harp, the compositions of Ziryab or the voice of Thyagaraja, or perhaps to witness Sun Ra and his Arkestra perform on his native Saturn.

In Rx?: Music Inspired by the 11th Doctor & Companions, I have made use of many modes and tunings based on perfect ratios and harmonies from ancient Greece, Japan, Korea, Scotland and nature itself. The sounds you’ll hear range from the terrestrial to the esoteric, from organs, music-boxes, and toy pianos to kayageum, trautonium, whales, human greetings from the Voyager spacecraft and radio-signal recordings of planets.

But the stories of the Doctor, and especially the relations to his human companions, ultimately inspire the individual tracks of this album. Although I believe many people unfamiliar with Dr. Who can enjoy these 11 instrumental pieces for their own sake, those who have followed Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor, and his companions and cohorts- Amy Pond, Rory Williams, River Song, Clara Oswald, and Madge, will additionally appreciate their stories spread before you in a language of tones and space.
