Press Release from BSX:
BSX Records presents the original music composed for the Big Finish Audio dramas based on the internationally acclaimed 1970s television series SPACE: 1999. Forty-two years after it first premiered, Big Finish launched a reimagining of the premiere episode, “Breakaway,” and it became an instant hit. Six additional episodes, spread across two boxed sets, followed immediately with the original music of Joe Kraemer. This album features his score, bookended with exclusive, brand-new arrangements of the classic TV themes composed by Barry Gray and Derek Wadsworth.
Buckle up for a wild musical ride through time and space as BSX Records presents a stunning 2-CD set featuring music from nine thrilling Big Finish audio adventures starring members of the original classic DOCTOR WHO TV cast.
Featured Score selections include music from the Fourth Doctor adventures GOD OF PHANTOMS and THE WIZARD OF TIME, The Fifth Doctor adventure THE HELLIAX RIFT, the Sixth Doctor adventures VORTEX ICE, CORTEX FIRE and THE BEHEMOTH, the Seventh Doctor adventures RED PLANETS and THE QUANTUM POSSIBILITY ENGINE and the Eighth Doctor adventures CHARLOTTE POLLARD: THE FURTHER ADVENTURESS along with a demo suite from BATTLE ON SKARO.
Joe Kraemer began his first film score in 1986 when, at the age of 15, he was acting in an independent feature for director Scott Storm. Since then he has composed music for over 100 feature films, television episodes and movies, documentaries, and audio dramas. He is perhaps best known for his award-winning score to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE-ROGUE NATION (2015 Action Score of the Year, IFMCA), as well as JACK REACHER in 2012.
Other notable works include THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT, THE WAY OF THE GUN, TV series such as PANDORA, CREEPED OUT, and COMRADE DETECTIVE, and the documentary KING COHEN about the films of director Larry Cohen. In 2016, he composed a new score for the 1927 film SUNRISE by F.W. Murnau, which premiered live-to-picture in Dallas and has since been performed all over the world. In his spare time, Joe likes pizza parties and meeting new people.
