Synchronicities

Dark Side of the MoonThe Wizard of Oz

The most popular Pink Floyd synch theory is undoubtedly Dark Side of the Moon with The Wizard of Oz, commonly referred to as “Dark Side of the Rainbow”. Some people think Pink Floyd purposely created the Dark Side of the Moon to match up with Wizard of Oz, even though the band denies it. We personally think it’s a big coincidence, but you can be the judge of that!

With thanks to Andrew C. Wendland, we also list over 50 other listings of Pink Floyd related Synchronizations.

Courtesy: The Pink Floyd Movie Synchronization Story

“The Pink Floyd albums are listed in chronological order with the corresponding movie. In some cases, only part of the movie lines up with the album, but in the majority of cases, the entire movie can be played to music. A description of each sync appears by clicking on its title. I find that playing a movie with the Closed Captioning helps to follow the movie plot and themes, while performing the sync. Along with each album and movie, I list my rating (grading) of the quality of the synchronization.” – Andrew C. Wendland.

      I found a great sync to be the animated Alice in Wonderland with Echoes starting disc one at the beginning. Some really cool syncs.

      A frind of mine discovered that in the Dark Side of the Rainbow sync if after DSotM completes, that if you begin Animals at that point instead of starting DSotM again, incredible syncs happen, maybe better than the first part of the film. Try it out!

      enjoy!

      Oh, by “Echoes” above ^ , I of course meant the the best of set, and not just the song.

      The best sync for me is “Echoes” with the digitally remastered version of “2001 A Space Odyssey”. The sync on this one very tight and amazing. The key is to start the movie at chapter 28, then 3.14 seconds later (the value of Pi) start “Echoes”. You will be in for a treat. The music ends as the movie fades to credits.

      Gene

      I forgot to add: Notice how the mood of the music also tracks the video. This is especially noticeable when the movie changes to the scenes where you are gliding over an alien landscape.

      I worked on the timing for a long time. A 3 second start delay for the music is about the best you can do by hand. I used a Harmony remote to program a macro which allowed me to precisely adjust the delay time to approximate the value of Pi.

      Enjoy!

      I would add a postscript to express my feelings that this sync is an A+

      This is rather complex, but to learn how to sync 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, and The Wall all at the same time, go to http://iahuasca.blogspot.com. There are some screenshots there as well as detailed instructions. Thanks for your time.

      I have made two of my own Pink Floyd Syncs and many other syncs with different artists albums and movies.

      My two are “Dark Side of the Magic Railroad” (Dark Side of the Moon + Thomas and the Magic Railroad) that was my 2nd sync and one of my most proudest.

      The other Pink Floyd Syncs I made was “Floyd Farm” (Animals + (Both) Animal Farm (1954 Animated Apdaption & Animal Farm (1999 Live Action Film). And those syncs really do work! espically Dark Side of the Magic Railroad!

      I’ve found that Meddle can be synched with Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window… start the album just before the paramount picture logo appears, there are many good syncs and One of These Days syncs perfectly at the beginning.

      I know this is well within an obvious enough area of experimentation (perhaps not completely unheard of, even) BUT…Dark Side of the Moon matched with Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland(2010) works brilliantly overall – just as well as Dark Side of the Moon + The Wizard of Oz (Dark Side of the Rainbow) – IF NOT BETTER, in my opinion. If the CD is in repeat mode and you start it just as the final wording in the opening credits appears (being the title itself) such that the album and the ‘refrains’ provided by the first few songs eventually repeating to fill out the full length of the movie, it works extra well(which may…OR may not… already be an established opinion shared by others) AND it does maintain that well-above-average synchronisity, I’m suggesting, all the way from beginning to end!

      Having given yet more thought to the timing of the above…a slight variation worth considering (just fine tuning really) is to wait until the figure at the window is seen in the context of an indoor shot immediately afterwards. This means allowing the opening titles of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010) to finish and also waiting for the panning & zooming shot to finish, then start the (D S of the Moon) CD (from the beginning) at that point just as you first see the faces inside that upstairs room. By the way, another almost unparalleled (in its excellence) music sync for Fleudians is to match (again) D S of the Moon now with The Neverending Story – this time carefully cueing the CD at about the 25 second mark (just as you hear the very early cash-register-plus-mumbling sound effects) and then press ‘play’ simultaneously on both CD & DVD players. There’s no need to cue the DVD in this case. Believe me, these two ideas, which I’ve detailed here, will then offer (CD in the repeat mode of course) totally great synchronicity – I even spelled it correctly this time (:

      I tried syncing “The Division Bell” with “Bambi” as a personal experiment and found it works really well. Play the album for 14 seconds and then pause it. Resume play when the leafy green “Walt Disney Presents” title card appears. Loop the album once so that “Cluster One”, halfway through the song, closes the film. You’ll know it works when the beginning note of “What Do You Want From Me?” plays when Bambi opens his eyes for the first time.
