  5. but?

    You have to consider that this was made very quickly with the simplest software, by a rock fan, not a dance DJ!

  11. It seems that my comment let all of you with some weird feeling hehe

    well, I just wanted to say that it was a little bit simple, but it seems that Andrew knew what I meant ;)

    Hey, I like it thou, I didn’t meant that it was a bad mix :)

  12. …I hope my royalty cheque’s in the post… actually, I hope it’s not as I’d have to hand over most of THAT one to Neil Hannon again…

    My remix of the theme (the one actually used at the end of ep 6 of the series) is slightly longer than when broadcast. If you want to hear the full-length, epic, extended, unedited version of the dance mix of The IT Crowd theme (all 41 seconds of it) it’s here:


    P.S. …and I love the bit at the end of your mix, Mike, where it slows back down – really nice…

  13. Now how about a midi ringtone version?


    March 15, 2006 at 8:33 am

  14. Wow, cheers Philip, that sounds great, i love the little *bow bow bow*s that sound of every so often.

    How did you get the chance to do that for the IT crowd then?

    Cheers for the heads up :)

  15. Ta for that. I’m a TV sound editor and have done quite a bit of sound for comedy (such as “Spaced” and “Look Around You”, and bits and bobs for shows like “The Office” and “Black Books”) and the dubbing mixer on the show – the very talented Matt Stronge at Jumbuck – needed something to close ep 6 with.

    Neil Hannon was unavailable for this, so I just got hold of the original theme tune elements and did the fast version in a software editing package which I co-developed called “Tracktion” (blatant plug for product…) nIt had to fit the already-editied pictures quite tightly, which is why I only did 41 seconds-worth.

    Good show, though and apparently Graham Linehan’s writing series 2 as we speak!

  16. That sounds like a great job, i know that mike made his mainly just using audacity, so there were no effects as such, just speed and pitch controls, He was feeling lazy and didnt want to install qubase!

    Do you have anywhere that i could hear more of your tv show music?

    I’m a big fan of black books and spaced too, which bits did you do on those?


    March 15, 2006 at 11:49 am

  17. yeah i love spaced too, sound mixing sounds cool, i want to try and get into the movie/tv business. ive used a bit of Reason and abode audition, which are ok, and audacity for recording my guitar and mixing, i like the added effects in your mix phillip. im hoping to do another little remix later this week just gona mess around with inserting soundbites and maybe add some of my guitar in there as well.

  18. Nice work on the remix. I love it.

    Until this, I’ve been resorting to playing the 30 second opening theme song over and over. :(


    March 16, 2006 at 2:43 am

  19. woo im downloading now this better be good!! im on dail up yay.!.!.!

  20. […] I love the IT Crowd opening theme song, and apparently so do a lot of other people. I found a few links on the web to which a couple people made their own mix of the song. I think it makes a dandy ring tone. My favorite version can be found on Atariboys website here. Painting by Numbers also has a shorter version that is better suited for a ring tone, and it can be found here. Also lanlark made a unique version that’s more of a midi sound, but very cool. He changes things up about 10 seconds into the song, and it can be found here. Enjoy! […]

  21. could you tell me who made the normal opening? I am wearing my slightly larger glasses RANDOM

  22. Much appreciated for making this available. I really dig the theme, although I’m almost embarassed about it because of its simplicity and derivativeness. Good work. :)
