A Tribute to John Barry

by Travelers Of Tyme

Goldfinger 02:26
Ipcress File 04:08


Travelers of Tyme doff their helmets and raise their martini glasses to John Barry Prendergast of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, the esteemed film composer, who passed into The Black Hole this past January at the age of 78. Though John Barry's is not a household name among non-musicians, it is likely you have heard his music in the highways and byways. Most famous for the music he composed for the James Bond film series, including the oft-sampled James Bond Theme with its iconic rattling electric guitar and stacked, blasting brass, John Barry's career spanned almost 50 years during which he accumulated 5 Oscars, 4 Grammys, 1 BAFTA, and 4 Oscar & BAFTA nominations. The American Film Institute ranks no less than 8 of Barry's film scores among the greatest ever put to paper.

Owing to his defining role in the "feel" of such spy classics as Goldfinger & The Ipcress File, as well as his well-beloved score to the Disney sci-fi classic, The Black Hole, the Travelers are humbled to pay musical homage to a fallen mentor. We do not seek to improve upon his original music -- it needs no embellishment -- but perhaps, filtered through the machinations of the HomN, the disembodied voice of John Barry hums on via the Mysteries of Tyme...

We hope you enjoy listening to these tracks as much as we enjoyed arranging them. It truly is a pleasure to work with music so well put together.

Godspeed, John B.!
