That's cool!

Recently bought Delia Derbyshire / Brian Hodgson / David Vorhaus ‎– Electronic, it's a pretty cool album. ... e/10792268
These recordings were used in the Thames television series The Tomorrow People (1973-1979). Side A, tracks 1 to 9 and all of side B appear on the Trunk Records release The Tomorrow People Original Television Music [JBH 017].

Most of the tracks are given a short library description as to their nature:

Lure of the Space Goddess - Slow, melodic and spatial expansion
Battle Theme - Heavy industrial, non-melodic
Homeric Theme - Slow pulsating, atonal melody
Greek Concrete - Violent, abstract, non-melodic
Attack of the Alien Minds - Atonal, psycho-physiological
Gothic Submarine - Abstract, non-rhythmic
Whirring Menace - Eerie, high pitched slow pulsed
Souls in Space - Abstract, despairing cries
Time Capsule - Abstract, pulsating harmonic chord
Restless Relays - Rhythmic, humorous
Planetarium - Non-rhythmic
Wet Asteroid - Non-melodic, non-rhythmic
Way Out - Melodic and rhythmic
Fresh Aire - Rhythmic and happy
Delia's Theme - Waltz tempo, complete theme
Tentative Delia - Waltz tempo, non-thematic
Delia's Idea - Four legged waltz
Delia's Psychadelian Waltz - Melodic and rhythmic
Delia's Resolve - Get up and go, melodic
Delia's Dream - Melodic, floating waltz
Delia's Reverie - Thoughtful, melodic
Delia's Fulfilment - Waltz, theme melody
Build Up To... - Menacing crescendo, non-melodic
Snide Rhythms - Non-melodic, free-form rhythm
