PULSE a Masterclass in Production

Back in the early 2000’s I had flown back to WA from my then base on the Northern Beaches of Sydney to catch up with my younger brother for some event or other.

While there, he played me a DVD on his new stereo VCR, and I was gobsmacked. That DVD was Pulse by Pink Floyd, a live concert at Earls Court in London.

To this day, that concert to me, is the epitome of a live production; simply it is masterful.

I hate to think how many cameras were employed and how much editing had to be done – the sheer size of the project is staggering. The lighting alone is worth the watch.

 

 

 

Pulse is a Master Class on putting together not just a music video or concert, but any sort of production.

By the way, the guitar break in the song Comfortably Numb was voted as the best guitar solo ever. If you want to see / hear it, start the clip at around 1:17:24
