Worcester – a promo film – Nuneaton

Hi everyone.

Once again the Swan Theatre did us proud on Saturday. We were thrilled to see yet another great turn out and yet another wonderful evening of Pink Floyd music ensued.

The biggest thing for us was the debut of the Floydian projections onto our circular screen. We only sorted this out the day before and our thanks go to Matt at SSR Lighting for the software and hardware we used. He was a massive part of us being able to accomplish this. All the videos were triggered by Ted from behind the drum kit, giving him yet another job to do! He also triggers all the sampled sound effects samples – and plays the drums! He was a busy man on Saturday as coordinating all that is no mean feat. It looked great from on stage but it was important to concentrate on playing and not stand there watching the film!!

One other thing to come from Saturday’s show is our new promo film. We’ve needed something to put on our website home page for a long time but wanted it to be different to other PF bands out there. What we did was film the whole show from the sides of the stage using time lapse cameras and put it to a live audio recording of us doing Shine On You Crazy Diamond. A whole two and a half hour concert in less than 2 minutes! Our keyboard player Pete Riley then edited it all and introduced several stills at the back end to add the audience perspective and take us to the end of the audio. Hopefully you like it – it’s now on our website home page – and also on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/pQ90-nJUoLM

Next up is a long overdue return to the Queens Hall in Nuneaton. We last played there back in April 2009 so it’s been over 5 years now. Back then we were a mere 7 piece with the since departed Sarah on sax and Jody on drums. That means this will be a DSOTW Nuneaton debut for Ted, Sofia, Taz and Louise. It promises to be a great night and all the show details are as follows:
