Pink Floyd: Sound, Sight and Structure
Interdisciplinary Conference, Princeton University, 13 April 2014
Princeton University will be hosting an interdisciplinary conference celebrating the music, art, and culture of Pink Floyd, one of the most successful bands of all times. The first-ever academic conference to focus entirely on the band will feature Grammy-award-winner and Pink Floyd producer/engineer James Guthrie, Pink Floyd scholar Shaugn O’Donnell (CUNY Graduate Center), and English Professor Nigel Smith (Princeton University), alongside lecture-concerts by Princeton graduate students Gilad Cohen, Dave Molk, and Troy Herion. In addition to lectures and discussions, the conference will present world premieres of compositions and arrangements inspired by Pink Floyd music, as well as playing of James Guthrie’s surround mixes of Pink Floyd’s music.
