The Dark Side of the Moon

I guess I’m with Erykah Badu when it comes to picking my favourite record: Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. This goes as far that I’ve bought several copies of the record and enjoyed the documentary on the album more than once. Not to mention the Pompeii gig and, of course, Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point.

The one thing I admire about the British band is their pioneering work when it comes to adding a strong visual language to their performances. Below you get to see the final cut of the backdrop films used during their initial US, UK, and French tours for the album.

Let’s hope these are meant to stay online, otherwise you might want to head over to Matthew Fuggi’s Vimeo page where you can download the videos for the time being.

Nosaj Thing at Festival de Arte Digital

If you’re a regular visitor to this site, you’ve probably seen a handful of videos of Nosaj Thing‘s live visuals.

This one was recorded at last year’s Festival de Arte Digital in Belo Horizonte and I think it’s the first I’ve seen in which Jason talks a bit about the visuals.
