Please use the HQ mode, the sound is much better!

The Great Gig in the Sky is composed by Richard Wright (1973). This tune is on the fabulous album The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. I listened to this album since my early childhood and I love the amazing vocal improvisation of Clare Torry.
I didnt intend to play her vocal solo on the keyboard because I knew I would fail. My goal was much more to create my own instrumental version.
The pedal steel guitar of David Gilmour is an essential part of the colour. Then I tried to play a guitar solo on my keyboard. To calm down I used a trombone (SA2) with some effects. On the last part is a interplay between guitar and sax played on the splitted keyboard. I hope you like it. Thank you.

Gear: all sounds are from Yamaha Tyros 3 except the piano sound, which is Ivory Steinway (Synthogy). All audio parts were transferred to the computer and mixed in Sonar Producer Edition (Cakewalk) with some effects and further mastering tools.
