1978-79. Il Tour di Fabrizio De André e PFM rompe più di un tabù. Rivoluziona i rapporti tra parola cantata e musica con una profonda quanto azzardata operazione di rinnovamento, che investe non solo i due artisti ma l'intera musica italiana. Ecco per la prima volta il racconto, per parole e immagini, di un'avventura senza precedenti, fuori dalle logiche del business, dal settarismo dei media e dai pregiudizi del pubblico. Questa è la storia di una sfida, di una nuova iniziazione. È il viaggio di una tribù, tra forti tensioni sociali e frequenti contestazioni, qui ricostruito tappa per tappa attraverso le parole di Franz Di Cioccio, frontman e batterista della PFM, che di quel tour ebbe la folgorante idea, e le fotografie di Guido Harari, che di quella avventura volle a tutti i costi essere il fotografo ufficiale. A loro si unisce un nutrito coro di testimonianze rilasciate dai protagonisti di allora e da alcuni artisti amici.
What is the universe? What does that mean? I will try to explain to those persons who want to know. The universe is the large emptiness we see all around and parts we do not see yet.
It is easy for us to see through it and reach out, and we touch nothing. The universe does exist because there are things that we can touch and feel. There is space around everything; this empty space. It did not exist before any parts or trees, grass, animals, people, so there was emptiness. This is called es or ethrea and exists millions and billions of years ago. There was a super intelligent being, whom we call Jehovah, and Jehovah looked all over this empty space and found no other being or no other part or thing in this emptiness that exists.
He called it ethrea; he found nothing existed besides him. So he thought and thought for quite some time and decided he would create a being called animal, but there was nothing to be like him. "It does not need to look like me. Nothing can be like me. It must have a place to move and a part that helps it move. It must have legs and feet to touch something to move on." So Jehovah discovered that he could speak and lots of stuff would come into existence. "Now how can make this stuff form into balls, or better, I'll call it a planet or nebula.
If I make it go around like a whirlwind, it will come to a center." So he caused the stuff to go round and round, and he discovered it got hot with friction. When it cooled down, it became a large ball, and he called it the sun. Some of the spinning stuff became smaller balls, and he could call those the planets and the smaller ones as moons. There were so many of these planets and moons. What could he do with them? He could make grass and trees and animals and people that could be companions. It would take many years of experiments to do this, and he had so many planets to cause to grow and many years to make the animals able to talk, and they will need to be able to eat.
Charles Graybar had all of the trappings of a financially successful existence; literally, living the American dream.
As he reached his late 30's he was stunned by the realization that his life felt incredibly empty and seemingly without purpose.
While experimenting with a self-designed combination of meditation techniques that he used to escape the stresses of corporate life, he stumbled upon a perceptional gateway of sorts in 1993. Through this gateway Graybar learns that communication with three advanced souls is possible. Beyond the Broken Gate is a chronicle of Graybar's search to find meaning in his discovery and the very purpose of life.
