#59 – Tim Souster – Swit Drimz (Transatlantic) 77


I Think i´ve blogged already about the origin of the theme song of te Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy , but this seems to be a good possibility to remind you again on this song and especially on his creator – the Eagles or in this term Mr. Tim Souster

100 Records That Set The World On Fire

Tim Souster (29 January 1943 – March 1, 1994) was a British composer best known for his electronic music output.

In the late 1960s Souster began experimenting with electronics. His first acknowledged composition involving electronic techniques was Titus Groan Music (1969) for wind quintet, ring modulator,amplifiers and tape. In August of the same year he moved to King’s College, Cambridge and formed a live-electronic group with Roger Smalley, Andrew Powell and Robin Thompson calledIntermodulation. As well as compositions by Souster and Smalley, the group performed contemporary music by Cardew, Riley, Rzewski, Stockhausen and Wolff.

In the 1980s and 1990s he wrote music for film and television, including music for The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, including the main theme, which was a re-arrangement of Journey of the Sorcerer by The Eagles (wikipedia)
