RPWL plays Pink Floyd “The Man And The Journey”
Just in time for the autumn tour RPWL bring along a brand new live CD and DVD that contains the very “The Man And The Journey” show, filmed and recorded during a performance at “De Cacaofabriek” in Helmond, Netherlands.
The recording showcases a band in top form that brings the unorthodox set to life with playful lightness. RPWL take the audience on a trip through a human’s life. From getting up in the morning, going to work, all the way to nightmares and a lot more: in the first part of the show the band lays out the regular course of a person’s day. The second part, though, consists of the dreamlike spiritual contemplation of all the things that happened in the first part.
In the process the musical implementation proves extremely imaginative: during “Work” all kinds of utensils create sounds – even a toolbox is made to come to life musically. On songs like “Nightmare” – the song that later became famous as “Cymbaline” – the band amazes with fascinating ensemble playing. The improvised solos do not only show the individual virtuosity of the respective band member in breathtaking manner but they also demonstrate the degree of ease with which the band manages to master the atmospheric, dynamic and sound-related hurdles hidden in this extraordinary example of psychedelic music. The magnificent and perfectly embedded visuals further enhance the artistic experience: they beautifully accompany the band as well as the audience on this journey through the early works of Pink Floyd.
The CD/DVD will be out in time for the start of the tour on 21st October 2016 in Freising. Officially in store on 28th Octover 2016.
