To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s iconic album “Dark Side of the Moon,” a unique event is coming to London that will immerse 100 lucky fans in a mesmerizing audio experience. These fortunate attendees will have their brainwaves monitored while listening to a special Dolby Atmos mix of the classic track “The Great Gig In The Sky.” But that’s not all; participants will also receive a custom-made artwork based on how their brains respond to the music.
This extraordinary event is part of “The Brainstorms Project,” a collaboration between Pollen Audio Group, Richard Wright Music, and Dolby Laboratories.
The chosen track, “The Great Gig In The Sky,” was selected because it contains no lyrics, allowing for an uninterrupted focus on how the brain reacts to the music.
Creative Director Gala Wright shared her thoughts on the project, saying:
“When I came to Pollen in 2021, I was thinking about interesting ways to celebrate Dark Side of The Moon in its 50th year. We are guardians of Richard Wright’s legacy but having taken no part in creation of the music, we were sensitive to propose ideas which did not comment on the album’s meaning or artistic contribution. Producing an elegant visual which directly represents how people are affected while listening to the music seemed a perfect way to shine a light on one of the album’s most loved tracks. We are very grateful to have the support of Richard’s former band mates to pursue this project with The Great Gig in the Sky, and hugely excited to begin the first stage with Dolby.”
If you’re eager to be part of this unique experience, you can sign up for a chance to participate.
The 100 selected candidates will be invited to attend the event on a date between October 2nd and October 6th. After the brainwave monitoring and immersive listening experience, “Brainstorms: The Great Gig in the Sky” will be presented to the public at an iconic London venue later in the year.
Don’t miss this opportunity to dive into the music of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” like never before, with your brainwaves and emotions guiding the way. It’s a one-of-a-kind celebration of music and the human mind that promises to leave a lasting impression on lucky attendees.
