Series X News – Music Grades

A little more on the issue of the series X music cues from Richard Naylor today:

Spent the morning listening to reddwarf series 1 music stings, so many brilliant ones that never got used. Now off to soho for a pre-grade. To answer questions I’ve always loved the music from 1 and 2, especially cat string stuff. If there’s a way of using it would be my choice.

Now, not wishing to make a mountain out of a molehill here, this is an unexpected prospect. Does it give us a hint at how they are planning to solve the problem? Who knows? The mention of series 1 and 2 in general would suggest to me that they are trying to find a way to get the cues they wanted to use. One thing is clear; the series won’t go out without the music. That does mean that the money will have to be found somewhere of course, and frankly I don’t envy Doug having to go cap in hand to Dave. Still, at this stage I really wouldn’t see it as an issue to panic over, but it will definitely be interesting to see what cues they do end up using. For now, here’s a picture of Richard in the pre-grade. It has to be said, what we saw on the monitors already looked great at the recordings, so I’m expecting good things after the colour grade has been applied.
