TV Theme Stream

The network Radio-Canada asked the musician who goes by the name Pheek to remix the musical themes to some of its most popular TV series, dating back at least to the 1950s. The result of that archival effort is currently available as a stream from Pheek’s webpage, (look for the link toward the site’s upper left-hand corner). Among the TV shows whose themes are included in the mix are Le temps d’une paix (“It was about a French Quebec family of the 1900s,” said Pheek), Septième Nord (“I’d say it was our equivalent of General Hospital, but less of a soap opera”), Rue des pignons, and Les belles histoires des pays d’en haut. Listeners unfamiliar with the original broadcasts will still take pleasure in the familiar period and genre musical elements (the lush orchestrations, most notably), and with the way that Pheek has sewn them into an extended, dreamy whole.
