The Making Of The Dark Side Of The Moon

Ian Boddy – Elemental

This series of videos looks at the making of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon – not only one of the most popular albums of all times – but one of the most influential.

The album features amazing production work by Alan Parson, elements of music concrète, EMS VCS 3 Putney & Synthi A space rock synth and fantastic musicianship. It’s no wonder Pink Floyd is cited by Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and other electronic space rock artists as a key influence.

Don’t miss the discussion of Money in part 11, which starts with a look at the creation of underlying 7/8 tape loop and moves on the multi-track, with a detour for Alan Parsons to discuss vocal processing.
