Sci-Fi & On the KNOBS
Sound Archive

This list of sound clips covers some of the many sources
of diverse sound material I have available.
These were originally captured in .WAV format -
some, a few years ago now, but I have now
compressed these all to MP3 - producing a huge saving in
space and bandwidth. This has meant that I can now make
many of the files available for down-load directly from
this site, or to listen to on-line - some make take some 10s of
seconds to down-load to your machine and this shouldn't really
be attempted unless you have a good connection
eg. >250kbit/sec.

The various sources include Danny Rampling's EuroMix,
Pete Tong's Essential Selection and Judge Jools early
evening Saturday programme on the
BBC Radio 1 Channel in the UK.

The Science fiction material is taken from Star Trek,
Blade Runner, Red Dwarf, The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy,
Babylon 5, and 2001 & 2010 A Space Odyssey.
The sound clips are mostly decent stereo or mono MP3 quality...

Lets see what's out there, engage..

1. Up-to-the-minute. Trance.
Updated - 14/5/2006.
Paul Van Dyk - and The Politics of Dancing.
he just did the POD set at the ANU bar in
Canberra and the track here is from the CD,
Track 11 - from the POD CD I - see ..
Paul Van Dyk website.
His stuff is great... Check this Track out...
This is the UK TV Channel 4 TV ad. for 'DiscoTechque',
the (then) new double album from GateCrasher(Sheffield).
It really says more than you at first may imagine..
and well the truth always 'outs'.
"Theirs is no ordinary life.. They have a secret - by day
they look normal but by night things change. They hot up,
they go a bit wild, they get lost in their dreams and their
fantasies. Its like being in a film and living out the soundtrack.
It's the music that does it ... ITS THE MUSIC..."
GateCrasher UK
This is from John's BBC radio One programme which used to
be broadcast on Radio One on Saturday Afternoon just before
Danny Rampling's Euromix started at 7pm. (there are sound clips
from this programme. below).
He was staying in a hotel in London over-night and was wakened
by water gushing from the over-head light fitting...
This clip tells how he dealt with bot it and the American
hotel owner/manageress.... A lesson for us all.
He died of a heart attack whilst on holiday with
his wife Sheila in South America in 2004.

His approach to listening and playing music
was and is mirrored by my own enthusiasm for
the same type of material... Long Live John Peel

2. Clips From Science Fiction Sources.
Updated - 5/5/2006.
Although not strictly 'Sci-Fi' - I had to include this clip
from my video archives as it represents part of what I feel
is the endearing quality about this story from 1982.
It has stood many repeat showings but for me, the best was the
early edition which had Bernard Cribbins narrating the story to
the music and pictures. Aled Jones also played a pivotal role
in creating what must be one of the best all-time tracks
'Walking In the Air', for this sort of book
Blade Runner. Music from the first part of the film.
The very Haunting piece 'Tales of the Future', Spoken in
Arabic with an Egyptian accent!! Believe it or not -
this piece is sung by .. Demise Roussos!! Now if only
all his other stuff had been like this... He was raised
in Egypt as a child. Most of the stuff in the song is
gibberish except 2 lines come through
'Tell me my Dear?. Tell me my Mother?
See the Engelen Blade Runner Trivia website for these details

Blade Runner. Just before end, on roof with the last of the remaining REPLICANTS.
I have seen things you people wouldn't believe
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion
I watched sea beams glitter in the darkness
for 10 hours a day
All those moments will be lost.. in time
Like tears.. in the rain, time to die
I don't know why he saved my life
Maybe in those last moments he loved life
More than he ever had before
Not just his life, anybody's life, my life
All he wanted were the same answers the rest of us want
Where do I come from, where am I going,
How long have I got
All I could do was sit there and watch him die...
Blade Runner. Music from the end sequence.
'...Gaff had been there and let her live, 4 years he figured. Tyrell told me Rachel was special, No termination date. I didn't know how long we'd have together, who does...'
2010 Space Odyssey. Last part of the end title sequence on Europa. When man is warned off. All these worlds are yours except Europa. Attempt no landing there..
The Babel fish is small, leach like and.. In fact the up-shot is if you stick one in your ear... Now it is such a bizarrely improbable thing to exist and so you prove the non-existence of God...
From Babylon 5.
G'Quan wrote, 'There is a greater darkness than the one we fight.
It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we
fight is not against powers and principalities; its is against chaos
and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope,
the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender.'
Light relief. Billy Connolly in Canberra, Australia. My favourite quote of all time!! including the nipple piercing bits. EXCELLENT. One more of us. One less of them!! EXCELLENT.
BORG. You think in such 3-dimensional terms. How small you've become..
BORG. Freedom is irrelevant, self-determination is irrelevant. You must comply..
BORG. Human we used to be exactly like them, flawed, weak, organic..
BORG. Brave words - I have heard them before...
Star Trek - TOS.
Captain Dunsel. One of your better prescription. Do you know the one ' All I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by, you could feel the wind at the back in those days, the sound of the sea....
Danny Rampling Euromix piece featuring the voice of CARL SAGAN. You can have anything you want.
No-one saw it approach,
a small point of light lost
in the glare of the morning sun.
It had been drifting for centuries
in the inner solar system
like an ice-berg in interplanetary space...'
2010 Space Odyssey. HAL operating the Leonoff to apply sling shot so crew can get back to Earth. Will I Dream...
A.C. Clarke talking about life under the waves and its connection with ET in communication terms. Piece from Close Encounters music.. see next sound clip...
Close Encounters. The Meeting in the crater. The music sequence....Cool blue, up a Perfect 5th, raise a 2nd up an octave, so, Faster, faster, privit, privit, Arree arre aussi - lets go..
Close Encounters. The end sequence just before the mother ship arrives. The 5 Tones. Response from the mother craft. Tonal sequences... GREAT. Almost 4 mins.

2010 Space Odyssey.

Hello Penny. Hello Penny. Please talk to me. All that Dave Bowman really was is still a part of me... why are you here. Goodbye Penny. Something is going to happen... something wonderful...


2010 Space Odyssey.
What is it HAL . There is a message for you.
Message is as follows It is dangerous to
remain here. This is not a recording..
Who the hell is sending this. Who am I talking too.
The response is... I was David Bowman...
I need proof. It is important that you believe me...
look behind you... Hello Dr. Floyd.
Please, believe me - this is very difficult for me...
I don't have much time.
I'm allowed to give you this warning...
4.5 minutes. GOOD...

transmit to Earth.... What is going to happen Dave...
Something wonderful...
Lock confirmed on Beacon Terra One.
Message commences...
All these worlds are yours, except Europa...

2010 Space Odyssey. Good Morning HAL, Good morning Dr. Chandra. I have the greatest enthusiasm for the mission...
HHGTTG. Introductory music from the TV show. This is the story of the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. ...
Better selling than 54 more things to do in zero gravity....It scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important ways, 1st, it is slightly cheaper, and second it has the words DON'T PANIC inscribed in large, friendly letters on the cover...
BORG. I am Locutus of Borg. resistance is futile.
BORG. From this time forward you will service... US
Red Dwarf. Advice against living and working in ... SWINDON...
Well for the last few minutes Sir you have been dead. Wow - how does it feel. Have you ever been to Swindon...
Red Dwarf. Can you tell me what this new formula is for..
A real good rendition of the '...stupidy
sciencey brain-box stuff',
'You'll need to ask the professor ...

Star Trek - 30th Anniversary. May Jameson puts the whole series into perspective.
'The Creativity that brings about a Star Trek,
springs from the very same source as the
creativity that searches for the cures for
debilitating diseases or that launches
a Space Shuttle.'
'Our fantasies are The Stepping Stones
to Our Realities. The better our fantasies
can be the better our realities can become.
Star Trek is one of our very best fantasies.'
