Marooned (2:03)

Cover of The Division Bell

From The Division Bell and 12 other releases

“Marooned” is an instrumental track on Pink Floyd’s 1994 album, The Division Bell. An excerpt of the music is featured on Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd.

The piece was written by David Gilmour and Richard Wright. The song has sounds that describe the setting as an island (such as seagulls and waves crashing on the shore).The song was composed while jamming aboard the Astoria in early 1993. The high-pitch guitar sounds on the track came from a Whammy pedal which makes the guitar sound an octave higher, also known as a pitch shifter. Alike to “Is There Anybody Out There?” this song also used the shrill siren-like sound effect of the song “Echoes”.

The track was given a Grammy Award in the category of Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the Grammy Awards of 1994.

This song has only been played live 3 times. On the two dates in Oslo (one of which is featured on the Pulse DVD), Norway on the 1994 “The Division Bell” tour and at the “Strat Pack” charity concert, for the 50th anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster guitar, where Gilmour played his “#0001” Stratocaster.

This song was featured on Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd but was severely shortened in length to 2:02.

in 2014, for the 20th Anniversary of The Division Bell, a video was filmed by Aubrey Powell filming some parts in Ukraine.
