Reflections on Brainstorms: A Great Gig In The Sky

On Saturday 15th June I attended Gala Wright’s tribute to her late father’s work, Brainstorms: A Great Gig In The Sky. It is a multimedia experience that was curated by Gala Wright as Artistic Director of Brainstorms with the blessing of the remaining members of Pink Floyd. The opening event was attended by David Gilmour and his wife Polly Samson. Polly wrote on her Instagram, “Mesmerising Brainstorms @framelessldn. Thank you @gala_wright, such a lovely tribute to your dad and his Great Gig in the Sky.” Tickets were either general admission where you could wander around the four galleries, or VIP which allowed your live brain scan to be fed, in near real time, to the “clouds” gallery before attending the galleries. This article gives some background to the experience, plus has photos and my account. I do not know if it could go on tour in other countries given its...

Middlewick House Open Garden Event Reflections 2024

Nick Mason’s Middlewick House Open Garden charity event has concluded for another year and looked like an amazing success. My visit this year, my second year now, was much improved by meeting and talking to Nick Mason for the first time. He signed my Limited Edition Inside Out book and I had a very brief chat with him. Nick has a great skill in picking the weekend with the best weather well in advance as it was a great family day out with a positive summer vibe. All in aid of two local charities: Wiltshire Air Ambulance and The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust. Middlewick House Map Visiting Nick Mason’s Wiltshire property is a lot of fun. There is plenty to see and do and I highly recommend visiting. Not only does it support charity but its a great day out. I thought I would give a little annotated overview of...
