ANTHONY PHILLIPS – ICEFLIGHT: I. FLIGHT OF THE SNOW PETREL-GLACIER BAY, V. CATHEDRAL OF ICE

MUSIC FOR HEAVY WEATHER

Genesis και Pink Floyd δεν έχουν ιδιαίτερα κοινά στοιχεία από μουσική άποψη, μοιράζονται όμως μια κοινή ιστορία: οι άνθρωποι που δημιούργησαν τις δυο μπάντες και υπήρξαν στο ξεκίνημα οι “ηγέτες” τους …έφυγαν νωρίς για να ακολουθήσουν σόλο καριέρα. Η περίπτωση Syd Barrett είναι γνωστή, λιγότερος κόσμος γνωρίζει όμως τον Anthony Philips, κιθαρίστα – συνθέτη-ιδρυτή των Genesis, που μετά τα δυο πρώτα άλμπουμ [From Genesis To Revelation, Trespass] τους εγκατέλειψε λόγω αυξανόμενης δυσανεξίας στις συνθήκες των τουρνέ – κυρίως λόγω αγοραφοβίας. Ακούμε την εισαγωγή και το φινάλε της ηλεκτρονικής σουίτας του, “Iceflight” από το άλμπουμ του Private Parts & Pieces VII: Slow Waves, Soft Stars [1987]

Genesis and Pink Floyd do not have particularly common musical elements, but share a common story: the people who created the two bands and there were at the beginning their “leaders”… left early, going solo. The case of Syd Barrett is known, but less people know about Anthony Philips, the guitarist-composer-founder of Genesis, who left the band after the first two albums [From Genesis To Revelation, Trespass] due to an increasing intolerance to tour conditions – mainly due to agoraphobia. We listen to the intro and the finale of his electronic suite “Iceflight”, from his album Private Parts & Pieces VII: Slow Waves, Soft Stars [1987]

    Now that was different! Not what I would normally enjoy listening to, but as I said in my last comment, it’s snowing here! This just works today!

      It was snowing here too when I put it on, so that was exactly the idea!
