We took young musicians Joe Connell & Josh Betteridge from rock band Wild Front to the new exhibition at the V&A, Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains. It was a chance for us to see these seasoned campaigners through the fresh eyes of youth!
The exhibition was originally conceived by Storm Thorgerson and developed by Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell, who worked closely with Nick Mason (Consultant for Pink Floyd). It is an audio-visual journey through 50 years of one of the world’s most iconic rock groups, and a rare and exclusive glimpse into the world of Pink Floyd.
It features many previously unseen objects collected over the band’s eclectic history. It begins with an oversized recreation of the Bedford van which took them from gig to gig in the mid-60s and ends in the Performance Zone, where visitors enter an immersive audio-visual space which includes the recreation of the very last performance of all four members of the band at Live 8 with Comfortably Numb. The track was specially mixed using Sennheiser’s groundbreaking AMBEO 3D audio technology.
Joe & Josh tell us what they took from it.
