Hitting the Silva Screen

I'm (quite literally) minutes away from leaving for the airport, but there's one last job to do before I head on out for a week of sun and sand in Portugal. Earlier today I received an email from the very lovely Jelena Jancic, who works as Press & Promotions manager at Silva Screen Records, who are themselves on the eve of releasing the very first Torchwood soundtrack album!

Reads Jancic's press release:


Highly Emotive Contemporary Score Composed by BEN FOSTER and MURRAY GOLD

Featuring high octane music highlights from Torchwood series 1 & 2, the spin-off series from Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies.

Ben Foster acted as orchestrator and conductor for Murray Gold on Doctor Who and then, went on to co-write with Murray the music for the first two series of Russell T Davies' Torchwood. Ben started his Film & TV career with scoring over 30 short films for various European directors and subsequently writing for a variety of television programmes (Love On A Saturday Night, The Great British Test series for ITV). He’s written the current arrangement for the title theme of BBC's Question Time and has also worked as the orchestrator The Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, The League Of Gentlemen's Apocalypse, and is currently working on The Mummy 3 for Universal.

Murray Gold is best known for his powerful score for Doctor Who which is widely regarded as a major element in the revival of the classic cult series. From his ground-breaking, BAFTA-nominated score to Vanity Fair, to the RTS Award-winning soundtrack to Queer as Folk, Murray Gold is one of the most accomplished composers working in television today.
