Something interesting to listen. 🙂

Vashta Nerada [Doctor Who Theme] is Traffic Experiment’s reworking of Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire’s classic Doctor Who theme, featuring the vocals of the very lovely Harri Norris and recorded with producer George Shilling (of Bernard Butler, Blur, Porcupine Tree fame) at his Bank Cottage studio.

Player Piano is a channel that specialises in huge, visually-elaborate renditions of music from the Street Fighter score to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. And the main theme of Doctor Who.
