En 1977, Roger Waters, bassiste et parolier de Pink Floyd, esquisse sur une feuille de papier le croquis d'un mur séparant public et musiciens. Partant de cette intuition, le groupe enregistre un double album au concept fort et qui rencontre un succès massif - plus de trente millions de copies vendues. Porté par le single «Another Brick In The Wall Part 2», prolongé par des concerts au dispositif révolutionnaire et un film d'Alan Parker, The Wall séduit bien au-delà du public habituel du Floyd. Dans Pink Floyd The Wall, Philippe Gonin retrace, de la genèse du projet aux concerts récents de Roger Waters, l'histoire d'une oeuvre plusieurs fois reprise, repensée et dont l'universalité du propos dépasse ses auteurs, rendant justice aux collaborations cruciales du producteur Bob Ezrin et du dessinateur Gerald Scarfe.

Pink Floyd's THE WALL is one of the most iconic and imaginative albums in the history of rock music, endlessly discussed and dissected. It is loosely based on the life and experiences of Roger Waters and the stage performances and film were created in close collaboration with Gerald Scarfe. Scarfe and Waters worked together on the new version of the stage show. Gerald retains all the imagery and from this massive archive the book includes hundreds of photographs of the creation, staging and filming of The Wall as well as the live stage performances. In addition, Roger Waters allowed us to reproduce all the interviews and texts associated with the production of the album, the stage performances and the film. This is the authorised, definitive book of THE WALL.

The endurance of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon on the Billboard Top 100 Chart is legendary, and its continuing sales and ongoing radio airplay ensure its inclusion on almost every conceivable list of rock's greatest albums. This collection of essays provides indispensable studies of the monumental 1973 album from a variety of musical, cultural, literary and social perspectives. The development and change of the songs is considered closely, from the earliest recordings through to the live, filmed performance at London's Earls Court in 1994. The band became almost synonymous with audio-visual innovations, and the performances of the album at live shows were spectacular moments of mass-culture although Roger Waters himself spoke out against such mass spectacles. The band's stage performances of the album serve to illustrate the multifaceted and complicated relationship between modern culture and technology. The album is therefore placed within the context of developments in late 1960s/early 1970s popular music, with particular focus on the use of a variety of segues between tracks which give the album a multidimensional unity that is lacking in Pink Floyd's later concept albums. Beginning with 'Breathe' and culminating in 'Eclipse', a tonal and motivic coherence unifies the structure of this modern song cycle. The album is also considered in the light of modern day 'tribute' bands, with a discussion of the social groups who have the strongest response to the music being elaborated alongside the status of mediated representations and their relation to the 'real' Pink Floyd.

Beyond its elucidation and critique of traditional ‘notation-centric’ musicology, this book's primary emphasis is on the negotiation and construction of meaning within the extended musical multimedia works of the classic British group Pink Floyd. Encompassing the concept albums that the group released from 1973 to 1983, during Roger Waters’ final period with the band, chapters are devoted to Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979) and The Final Cut (1983), along with Waters’ third solo album Amused to Death (1993). This book's analysis of album covers, lyrics, music and film makes use of techniques of literary and film criticism, while employing the combined lenses of musical hermeneutics and discourse analysis, so as to illustrate how sonic and musical information contribute to listeners’ interpretations of the discerning messages of these monumental musical artifacts. Ultimately, it demonstrates how their words, sounds, and images work together in order to communicate one fundamental concern, which—to paraphrase the music journalist Karl Dallas—is to affirm human values against everything in life that should conspire against them.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Medienökonomie, -management, Note: 1.7, Hochschule für Medien, Kommunikation und Wirtschaft, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Bedürfnisse der Gesellschaft rücken derzeit zunehmend in den Vordergrund, was sich deutlich durch die Forschungstheorie Uses & Gratifications Approach, die bereits seit den 1970ern besteht, zeigt. Hierbei treten drei wesentliche Aspekte in den Vordergrund: der Rezipient ist erstens aktiv und hat demnach die Möglichkeit, aus dem Medienangebot frei zu wählen, zweitens wählt er, um seine Bedürfnisse zu befriedigen, und drittens ist seine Mediennutzung „interpretatives soziales Handeln“. Wie sehr sich diese Erkenntnisse auf die aktuelle Zeit übertragen, wird in vielen Medienbereichen deutlich. So werden im Bereich Fernsehen Zufriedenheitsbefragungen durchgeführt und im virtuellen Bereich Nutzeranpassungen vollzogen. Diese Forschungstheorie findet ebenso Anwendung im Event-Bereich. Der Fokus liegt hierbei meist auf der Forschung im Bereich Event-Marketing. Allerdings soll die vorliegende Arbeit Anlass dazu geben, an die Wurzeln eines Events zu greifen. Im Zusammenhang mit der Forschungstheorie soll geprüft werden, welche Rolle die Multisensualität bei einem Event spielt. Auf dieser Basis ergeben sich folgende untersuchungsleitende Forschungsfragen: F1: Findet eine grundsätzliche Beeinflussung der Sinne untereinander statt? F2: Kann ein Stimulus die Wirkung eines weiteren Stimulus verstärken oder abschwächen?

The eighteen interdisciplinary essays in this volume were presented in 2001 in Sydney, Australia, at the Third International Conference on Word and Music Studies, which was sponsored by The International Association for Word and Music Studies (WMA). The conference celebrated the sixty-fifth birthday of Steven Paul Scher, arguably the central figure in word and music studies during the last thirty-five years. The first section of this volume comprises ten articles that discuss, or are methodologically based upon, Scher's many analyses of and critical commentaries on the field, particularly on interrelationships between words and music. The authors cover such topics as semiotics, intermediality, hermeneutics, the de-essentialization of the arts, and the works of a wide range of literary figures and composers that include Baudelaire, Mallarmé, Proust, T. S. Eliot, Goethe, Hölderlin, Mann, Britten, Schubert, Schumann, and Wagner.The second section consists of a second set of papers presented at the conference that are devoted to a different area of word and music studies: cultural identity and the musical stage. Eight scholars investigate – and often problematize – widespread assumptions regarding 'national' and 'cultural' music, language, plots, and production values in musical stage works. Topics include the National Socialists' construction of German national identity; reception-based examinations of cultural identity and various “national” opera styles; and the means by which composers, librettists, and lyricists have attempted to establish national or cultural identity through their stage works.
