David Gilmour - Live at Robert Wyatt's Meltdown 2002

Exclusivo ..::RokanRoll::..

Después de entrar a Pink Floyd al ingrato trabajo de reemplazo de Syd Barrett, David Gilmour demostró a lo largo de tres décadas que él no era, ni de lejos, ningún segundón. Y ha sabido, a lo largo de sucesivas rupturas, ser el timón de una banda emocionalmente inestable. Este DVD incluye lo mejor de una de sus más recientes presentaciones en el Royal Festival Hall, en la que revive con simpleza apabullante grandes momentos de Pink Floyd, suyos y de Syd Barrett. Además tiene de invitados a Richard Wright, Robert Wyatt , Bob Geldof, el 'Pink' de la película. El space rock de Pink Floyd en los años 70 parece no necesitar de los sintetizadores y efectos que creíamos imprescindibles. O por lo menos así lo demuestra David Gilmour en este concierto del año 2002. Tan sólo le basta su guitarra acústica y su voz para interpretar Shine On You Crazy Diamond, parte 1-5. Y es que son los arreglos los que hacen de este DVD (de sonido impecable y espectacular) algo imperdible para los seguidores de la banda. El espectáculo avanza gradualmente hacia una orquestación cada vez más rica y compleja, totalmente acústica, con excepción de los solos en guitarra eléctrica de Gilmour. Solos que demuestran por qué, a diferencia de Roger Waters, gran parte de la identidad instrumental de Pink Floyd la posee su guitarrista. Pero este concierto es mucho más que música de Pink Floyd y algunos covers interpretados por un miembro de la banda. Es una demostración de la calidad y el gusto musical de un músico con décadas de experiencia en el cuerpo, que lo diferencia de gran parte sus dinosáuricos coetáneos que ya hace tiempo perdieron el rumbo y la elegancia. Mención aparte merece la aparición del mítico Robert Wyatt en Confortably Numb.

Freed from the shackles of what Pink Floyd has become, David Gilmour sounds positively liberated on his new live DVD, David Gilmour in Concert. The years have snuck up on him, as it inevitably does to all of our heroes, but his voice is even more expressive now than it has ever been. He's actually becoming more like his long-estranged counterpart Roger Waters, and that's a good thing, a great thing in fact. They are both world-weary veterans having finally arrived at similar crossroads in their lives after drifting apart in their not-so-distant youth. Both men's voices are thinning, sometimes straining to reach notes. While Waters is still the bleeding-heart poet, and Gilmour still the guitar virtuoso, both seem tired of the bloated excesses of the rock n' roll machine that had welcomed them with open arms all those years ago, instead opting to embrace a more deconstructed approach to performing. Even moreso than Waters' latest hits tour, Gilmour has unearthed rarely performed gems and obscure covers, and has re-invented overplayed classics. The result is breathtaking. His take on Syd Barrett's seminal Terrapin is pure magic, and Dick Parry's sax solo on Shine On is a freeform revelation. It's this sense of experimentation that has been missing from Gilmour's repetoire since he and the Floyd recorded Dark Side. He's even managed to take his latter-day Floyd tunes into exciting new directions. Take High Hopes for example, what once sounded somewhat inflated and bombastic confined to its awkward Floyd-by-numbers construct, has now taken on a more stripped and organic flavor. Even his lyrics play better without the baggage of the brand name. It's also wonderful to see Richard Wright, playing Breakthrough from his own Broken China album, sounding relaxed and beautiful. Much of the beauty of the performances is in the rawness of the sound; often times you can hear each finger slide down the fret, each bend of the string. It's a clear and pristine recording to be sure, but it's not sterile and perfect, it's live, alive. Listening to the 5.1 surround, you could swear Gilmour is just feet away, acoustic guitar slung over his shoulder, entertaining guests at an intimate gathering. The bonus features are equally rewarding. Gilmour's cover of "Don't", the Leiber and Stoller song made classic by Elvis Presley, is heart-wrenchingly beautiful, and his rendering of Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, with Michael Kamen, is sublime. I was quite frankly shocked at how much I enjoyed this DVD. I've already played it more times than I've played Waters' excellent In The Flesh Live. I'd nearly forgotten how definitive Gilmour's guitar sound is, and how much I missed his voice. It's truly the sound of a wisened man with nothing to prove, a man no longer haunted by the ghost of Roger Waters. If this release is any indication of things to come, I will be waiting with just as much anticipation for Gilmour's next solo album as I am for Roger's, and praying for old friends to make amends.
