2001: A Floyd Odyssey

By Jay Weidner

Remember the controversy that Roger Waters had timed Pink Floyd's huge album Dark Side of the Moon to the first thirty of forty minutes of The film The Wizard of Oz?

That controversy is over. Once is an accident, twice is intention.

Witness 2001: A Floyd Odyssey and you will be convinced that Waters and Pink Floyd were using famous Hollywood films as a visual tapestry on which he built his musical compositions.

Waters wrote and constructed the 23 minute song Echoes which takes up one entire side of Pink Floyd's album Meddle. When timed to the very beginning of the subtitle from the last sequence in Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece 2001 A Space Odyssey we can clearly see that Waters has re-written the musical soundtrack to that most audacious, enigmatic and psychedelic film sequence in history.

I am not sure if Stanley actually knew that Waters had done this. It would have been interesting to hear his reaction.

Either way Roger Waters and Pink Floyd have created another interesting and enlightening avenue into the mysterious collaborations that can occur in this age of electronic art.
