Santa Barbara 1984 episodes
« on: December 27, 2020, 11:24:54 AM »
Hello all,
Since the links in my previous Santa Barbara-topic have expired by now, I'll open a new one specifically dedicated to the 1984 episodes. I've just finished going through all that year's 110 episodes, documenting each and every track.

Many can be attributed to the original composers Joe Harnell (the orchestral stuff) and Dominic Messinger. They often use the same melodies and instrumentation. Other tracks are from new age artists like Tangerine Dream, Steve Roach or Kraftwerk or from the Capitol, KPM, Southern or Bruton libraries. (My complete compositions list is posted on a French fansite: http://santabarbara.fr.free.fr/Compositions_used_on_Santa_Barbara.pdf)

Still there are tracks left of which I suspect they can have a different source. Hopefully you can identify them!

Sorry for the large amount, but it's a long shot! I'll do the 1985 ones when I'm finished with that year's episodes, but that can take a couple of years :) I know that the show gradually started using more of its own composers after 1985/1986, so I think this is the largest batch.

Thanks in advance and kind regards from the Netherlands!

Another one from Santa Barbara (although the sound effect might imply otherwise):

Of course, if anyone knows one of the other tracks above, my eternal gratitude will be yours :)

Two more from Santa Barbara...

https://voca.ro/11mkQCpYpbrA

Any idea if these are library tracks?
