Frank Rothkamm [ More Pink Floyd ]

At night in my room I put on the headphones and the record on the turntable. When I turned the lights out I could see a red glow coming from the light on the turntable. I listened to Pink Floyd, but it was a particular passage that put me in a different place: the sound of the opening bars of “Sheep” off the album “Animals”. I felt far away, alone, sad but safe in a cocoon, in a landscape where, as a young boy, I would fly kites. In late 2017, undergoing medical treatment in the hospital, I remembered this music, played by the late Richard Wright on a Fender Rhodes electric piano. This is where story of “More Pink Floyd” starts and ends, at a point in my life where thoughts about dying and my memories of Pink Floyd entangled like the 2 strings in a DNA. In the following months I sat down in front of a keyboard, ukulele, or synthesizer and made this album. “More Pink Floyd” became a soft psychedelic solo instrumental record with Pink Floyd-ian harmonies and a 1970s comfortably numb, but melancholic, haze sometimes with a far away island feel. It is a concept album, perhaps a soundtrack, with only connections to Pink Floyd’s past: 2 tracks are named after the 2 members of the band that have passed. “More Pink Floyd” seems to tell a story, with bookends and tiny doses of humor, and does it all via lucid, dreamy remembering.
