PINK FLOYD ~ lost in their dark realm
« on: October 04, 2021, 06:17:45 PM »

I didn't happen to see a thread about them here in the Music forum so thought to start one,
having been a huge fan of electronic music from the likes of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze,
and Andreas Vollenweider.
Meddle was my first exposure to Pink Floyd. A local radio station had the audacity to
spin "Echoes" late one night, all twenty-plus minutes of it. The Floyd had me under their
spell ever since.
I don't own copies of all their albums but still actively collect artwork related to The Wall.
A restaurant I used to frequent actually had caricatures by Gerald Scarfe framed and mounted
throughout their dining room. I only saw them once in concert, live during the Animals tour ...
and don't get me started on Dark Side of the Moon. That album leaves me emotionally
drained every time!
Yesterday I was at Hollywood's Vogue Theatre for a museum-style tour of Pink Floyd's inner workings.

Instruments, sheet music, concept art, recorded interviews, show props; it was all there.

These twelve-foot-tall effigies represented The Division Bell >

One of the giant pigs from Animals hovered overhead >

Projected in the auditorium was triple-screen concert footage and
an even bigger floating pig which kept changing color >


"The Teacher" formally welcomed us to The Wall wing >

One needs to see it in scale with guests to get a sense of its size >

Thankfully, class wasn't in session that day!

'A few more props related to The Wall >


I believe this exhibit may be touring now so catch it if you can, expensive but worth it.

Are you a fan of Pink Floyd's music, seen them in concert? Was the live show for Dark Side of the Moon 
as theatrical as later ones? If you have any memorabilia, do post pics.

Iíve been a huge fan of Dark Side of the Moon for many years and a Floyd fan in general. I never saw them live but still watch concert performances on DVD.

Thanks for the photos and the tip on the exhibit!
