Brief Synopsis:
THE WORLD'S GREATEST FILM MEETS THE WORLD'S GREATEST BAND: EXPERIENCE THE ODYSSEY LIKE YOU'VE NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE. This edit began as a traditional movie sync with all dialogue and sound effects removed. It has now transformed into a completely different project: a full soundtrack replacement using the one-of-a-kind library of Pink Floyd. Every bit of original music has been replaced with a carefully selected soundtrack of Pink Floyd music.
If you're familiar with Dark Side of the Rainbow then you should be pretty well-acquainted with the idea of a movie sync. If you're not, a quick explanation: Dark Side of the Rainbow is the combining of the film The Wizard of Oz (1939) and the Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon (1973). By playing the album over the movie, it appears that the two sync together almost perfectly. There is actually an entire website dedicated to this concept, not just for Oz and Dark Side, but the combining of other films as well. http://moviesyncs.com/

My favorite film is 2001: A Space Odyssey. I am also a big Pink Floyd fan. I have been familiar with the syncing of the "Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite" sequence and the Pink Floyd song "Echoes" for years. The sync is quite remarkable. This project is an attempt to create a full sync of the film using Pink Floyd music.

Special Thanks:
Special thanks to ArtisDead, for his exceptional guidance, invaluable feedback, and outstanding cover art design. As a first-time editor, his support was instrumental in making this project a reality, and I eagerly anticipate the possibility of collaborating with him again in the future.

My thanks also go out to Eyepainter, whose feedback and unique perspectives enriched the creative journey, and to Oddly Oaktree, whose enthusiasm and outreach underscored the sense of community in fan editing. Be sure to keep an eye out for Oddly Oaktree's own project when it's released!

And finally, I'd like to thank Kenny Dreamx, Jimmy Heidecker, and Andrew Wendland for the discovery of the original (now modified) tracklist. Without them, this project wouldn't exist in the first place.

Editing Details:
After realizing I did not like the idea of a traditional movie sync like Dark Side of the Rainbow, I decided to take a different approach. Though time consuming and at times frustrating to create, I find that the soundtrack replacement completely changes the feeling the film gives you, especially the last 25 minutes. During the process, I never wanted to alter any of the original footage and keep all of the original dialogue and sound effects. All of the original cuts are there, except for a shortened amount of black screen at the beginning and a shortened intermission. Doing so allowed me to fit the right songs in the right places while using the moviesyncs page as a guide. This kept Kubrick's original cinematic vision while altering the mood of the film.
Cuts and Additions:
-Replaced every bit of original music with Pink Floyd music in the order listed below
-Edited levels so they sound good together (dialogue and music are balanced)
-Original music removed from Frank's birthday and chess scenes, dialogue kept
-Recreated monolith high-pitch tone to play over music during Excavation Site scene
-Tweaked the Intermission so the word is on the screen for the whole time and the whole section is shorter
-Shortened black screen intro and added introductory text
-Added music during otherwise silent scenes
-Replaced some credits so that the Editor and Sound editor are both now "Cynical Cinema"
-Added tracklist to end credits
-Added slideshow to end credits
