This week, a new 27-disc, 7-volume Pink Floyd box set titled The Early Years 1965-1972 will be released. Above, you can watch a music video for an instrumental track titled “Nothing Part 14” that will be included in the collection’s Volume 5: Reverber/ation.
Pink Floyd’s seminal work “Echoes” was created by the band in a conscious desire to use a freeform jamming approach to composing new material. Accordingly they ended up with more than 20 pieces of music, of which this is one. All the pieces were originally called “Nothing,” and the collation therefore “Nothing, Parts 1-24,” followed by “Son Of Nothing” and “Return of the Son of Nothing;” before Roger Waters’ lyrics were added and the final work dubbed “Echoes.”
Also on the band’s YouTube page, creative director Aubrey Powell shared some insight about matching the music and video together:
After a chance meeting with Ian Emes he showed me some experimental animated film that he had been working on many years ago in the 1970’s. It had not been seen before and so I decided to try, with a bit of editing by Benny Trickett and some re- telecine restoration, whether it might work with “Nothing Part 14.”
It somehow fits beautifully into the rhythm of the piece and reflects the brilliant nature of Emes’ imaginative and painstaking animation. He was responsible for the famous Clocks film for “Time” and a piece called French Windows for Pink Floyd’s “One Of These Days,” shown on their famous circular screen.
The Early Years 1965-1972 is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon. “Nothing Part 14” will also be included on an abridged 2-disc version of the box set called Cre/ation.
