Cambridge orchestra to premiere Pink Floyd-inspired piece

Posted June 30, 2017 by Floydian Slip

tim brooks

The Cambridge Concert Orchestra will premiere a composition by Tim Brooks (pictured) called “Grantchester Variations,” an homage to Syd Barrett and the band he helped found and inspired by Pink Floyd‘s “Grantchester Meadows.”

The piece “will certainly intrigue Pink Floyd fans and lovers of modern orchestral music,” according to orchestra chairman Jan Mentha. “The harmonies and rhythms evoke the early exploratory Floyd works. So far as the orchestra knows, this the only orchestral ‘tribute’ to the iconic band.”

The orchestra will perform the piece as part of its 50th anniversary concert Saturday, July 8 at West Road Concert Hall.

Brooks, of Cambridge, studied music at York University and gained a teaching qualification in music and drama from Leeds University.

More information is available at the orchestra’s website.

Ferrari owned by David Gilmour for sale

Posted June 24, 2017 by Floydian Slip

A 1988 Ferrari F40 Berlinetta first owned by David Gilmour will go on the auction block June 30.

The car, purchased by Gilmour in July 1988, is expected to fetch as much as £1 million at Bonhams’ Goodwood Festival of Speed auction.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason purchased a similar model at the same time as Gilmour at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy, after Floyd’s Modena leg of its Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour. The pair are said to have driven them back to the U.K. following their purchase.

List price for the F40 in 1988 was £163,000. Just more than 1,300 were produced.

Though the car can reach a respectable 201 mph, its interior is spartan, sporting a pair of red body contour seats.

The auction takes place at Chichester, Goodwood.

See dozens of photos of the car at the Bohmans website.

Roger Waters album blocked in Italy

Posted June 21, 2017 by Floydian Slip

Sales of Roger Waters‘ new album “Is This the Life We Really Want” have been suspended in Italy over a claim of artwork plagiarism.

Italian artist Emilio Isgrò claims the redacted style of the artwork included with Waters’ album (top) infringes on his so-called “erasure technique” (bottom).

The album’s design is credited to Sean Evans, who also handled “creative direction” for the album; along with Danny Kamhaji and Dan Ichimoto.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports a Milan court has halted sales of the album, pending a hearing coming July 27.
