The ever inventive and entertaining Ron Geesin holds a place in many Pink Floyd fans hearts. He was key to the writing and development of Atom Heart Mother, and also worked on the Music From The Body documentary film, principally with Roger Waters for the music throughout the film, but also with the Floyd for the uncredited full band performance which appears on the soundtrack and subsequent soundtrack album. He also famously was joined by David Gilmour in 2008 for a recreation of the Atom Heart Mother suite at London's Cadogan Hall.

A highlights video of his very last live performance has just been put together (from three audience members' videos) to give a flavour of the event, which was held at the Cardiff Arts Centre, on the 7th February 2020. It includes solos on piano, banjo, bass marimba, voice and percussion; readings from his new book 'The Stapled Brain'; ends with Ron's interpretation of Bassoon by Vassily Kandinsky and includes a brief discussion of his involvement in Atom Heart Mother. Those who never had the opportunity to see Ron live, will get a good flavour of the unique, and memorable, nature of his performances...
