It’s funny the things you can miss if you don’t keep your ear to the ground when it comes to the internet.
The Doctor Who Fan Orchestra, arranged by Stephen Wills, is a group collaborative event that took place over the internet. Talented musicians recorded their own separate parts via webcam and other devices and where then all mixed together to perform a fantastic version of “I am the Doctor”, the triumphant signature theme tune for the eleventh Doctor.
Resembling a gathering on the Subwave Network for 2008’s “The Stolen Planet”, no musicians met face to face-it was all recorded at different times.
And it sounds pretty fantastic as well.
Described by the person who posted the piece online as:
“The Doctor Who Fan Orchestra invites musical fans of Doctor Who to take part in an online collaborative celebration of Murray Gold’s music. Participants submitted recordings from late Spring through to early Summer.”
At the moment, this is the only piece that has been released but hopefully, and we imagine only if the video gets enough hits on Youtube, there will be more to come…
So hit play and sit back and listen to just how much Doctor Who fans can achieve if they put their minds to it.
And a big well done to them all! You can download the finished results in MP3 format via Dropbox.
