Just the other day I finished mixing and released The Brothership Has Landed, and now my brain has gone into crash/depression mode. But that’s OK, I’ll recharge and be ready to go again in due time – everything in due time.
Meanwhile, here’s a video that I saw posted on my Facebook wall this morning by one of my friends of the Pink Floyd song Hey You off of their album The Wall – very powerful all around.
What happens when you cut-up and re-mix Pink Floyd’s classic 1977 album Animals with Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, David Byrne and Brian Eno, DJ John Digweed and other musical slices along with a number of sound clips from the mass media and popular culture?
You get a snap shot of current events in the form of an epic sound collage by UFOverdriver called The Brothership Has Landed… (note: the working title for this project was Weapons of Mass Communication – that got changed…)
This sound collage was constructed in 3 Acts between March 5th and March 17th, 2010 – and the completed piece contains 12 individual tracks, with a total length of nearly 44 minutes long.
Listen to the complete work – 43 Minutes and 38 Second…
Today we prepare this ship for extreme sub-conscious submersion and intergalactic imagination, cut and pasted for your pleasure, amusement, fascination and so that you can get up and dance to the sounds of modern hypocrisy…
