    I was listening to this song and in the middle section,where it sounds quite similar to the Dr. Who theme, is that the bass through some kind of effect? A phaser, Flanger? please specify. All input is appreciated. :)

    with Pink Floyd, I would believe it is either the bass through a ton of effects or more likely that synthisizer that was as big as a couch that they used heavily....
     
  4. the middle part was put through a vibrato (gilmour's words)

    here is a really cool video of the song:
     
  5. i always thought it tremolo myself.

    +1. vibrato is produced by rapid variations in pitch. tremolo is produced by rapid variations in volume (can also be seen as a rapid repetition of a single note, esp. in "classical" music).

    indeed! i suppose i should start using the term "art music" again. i used to use it all the time, but then people would just stare blankly or say, "what's 'art music?'" all the time... so i reverted back to using the technically incorrect "classical music."

    but yeah... that's why i put "classical" in quotes like i did. :)

    Of course, music critics used to call Pink Floyd "art rock". ;)

    This is vibrato. Notice the pitch warbles.

    This is tremolo. Notice the volume warbles.

    Any questions?

    No?

    Class dismissed! :D

    Not to mention Jonas Hellborg's band called Art Metal.
