Encyclopedia > Marooned (song)

The song "Marooned" is an instrumental track on Pink Floyd's 1994 album The Division Bell.


The piece was written by David Gilmour and Rick Wright and came about whilst jamming at Britannia Row Studios in early 1993. The high pitch guitar sounds on the track came from a whammy pedal which makes the guitar sound like it is playing an octave higher than what it is.


The track was awarded a Grammy in the category of Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the Grammy Awards of 1995. This is Pink Floyd's only Grammy to date.
