About the event

About the Talk

March 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the album 'The Dark Side of the Moon'  released by Pink Floyd in 1973. As one of the first conceptual albums in rock music to deal with the pressures of modern life, this album has long been hailed as revolutionary. Most of the songs are accompanied by sound effects, spoken elements and beautiful melodic tunes. With the Dark Side of the Moon, the band managed to provide an insightful perspective of  experiences, concepts and ideas contemplated in philosophy. The event will consist of an introduction by the speaker that will highlight the philosophical perspective relevant to the message and content of each song. A brief discussion among the audience will be held after each song is played. 

The Speaker

Ian Rizzo is by profession an accountant who currently leads the Philosophy Sharing Foundation and is co-editor of SHARE magazine. Ian has been listening to Pink Floyd since the age of eighteen and collected all their albums since then. He has read extensively on the band’s history and their music. Ian perceives listening to the albums of Pink Floyd (in particular The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were here,  Animals and The Wall) as an effective therapeutic exercise to cope with the existentialist anxieties in life.
