‘DR.NAUT’ intro theme
After a research abroad, Dr. Naut has returned to Earth
as a different person. But is she now stuck after
her infinite exploration? Watch her discover another new
world – in this SF sonic comic
First broadcast was in June 2008 and VPRO presenter Alberts called it a ‘World Premiere’, something the creator thought him to be funny. Yet, since then, ‘DR.NAUT’ has been distributed by NAISA in Toronto through radiostations in Canada and North-America and was aired by ABC Australia.
‘DR.NAUT’ has got many illustrative sounds defining spaces, camera angles, context, material, graphical cut. The absurd interruption being scene 3 echoes a burlesque advertisement or a sidekick strip. All this made Tinnemans to call it ‘audible comic book’ or ‘sonic comic’.
Techies: the theme song is mainly composed on ARP 2500 and the sounds from the Laboratory, in scene 2, are by the ARP as well as the EMS VCS3.
