The Green Side of the Moon
We imagined a multimedia project, based on music, dance and film.
First of all, our version of The Dark Side of the Moon has been completed.
It has been completely re-arranged and recollected by the band.
While we were reharsing and recording, a completely brand new track came to light and we deecided to record it as a tribute to Rick Wright... We called "Prelude for Rick".
Then, we recorded the rest of the suite Il Petalo del Fiore, too. In this way, the two suites are related one to the other and a unique story can be realized on stage by a live performance of music and dance. Dancers can perform live with the group, and we are augmented up to 7 musicians. So we wish to play the two suites in their entirety, without breaks.
In the end, the material was so vast we decided to record it on double-vinvyl, and of course on CD.
The double-vinyl will feature also "Mudmen", that we had to cut from the CD only because there was not enough space!
We have been aided by a lot of extremely competent musicians, old and new friends of the band!! And also a big role has been assigned to the graphic aspect, with exclusive photos and drawings, just like in the Floyd's (and Greenwall's) tradition.
