On this one very special night, experience Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon performed live by the band Pink Freud under choreographed laser images. Laser and planetarium projector light will fill the dome, allowing the music and images to envelope the audience. More than a million laser-generated hues and colors poetically express each timeless track.
Pink Freud is a band of veteran musicians who have gotten together to perform the classic rock of Pink Floyd, the way it was meant to be heard: live and with power. Hearing the music live accompanied by laser effects is a very rare opportunity.
This performance is the first in a monthly series presented in partnership with AMP Concerts as part of the New Mexico Culture Squared initiative. The 6 & 7 p.m. performances will include a 30 minute post-show tour of the Wild Music exhibit, which includes hands-on activites exploring the origins of music and how it is created in nature and by man.
