Music for two documentaries for Vietnam TV :
Vietnam My Heart (Vietnam Tin Toi) with English subtitles
Souls of Hanoi
4 parts documentary on 50 years Hanoi - no subtitles, VTV didn´t bother to delete the time code, so we have to live with it...
The whole thing was done in 5 days over Skype, between the first call from with Manouchehr Abrontan in Vietnam who desperately needed better music than what the production was proposing, and the last bit which he needed on the Saturday because of his flight back the next day.
Manouchehr´s idea was to illustrate traditional Vietnam – why I used the monochord, pretending it to be a sort of Vietnamese Koto - and determination, will, dark past memories, growing into the design of their future as a nation.
Viole à Voile
a song on my CD The Missing Link
I did this video with some excerpts from Vietnam Tin Toi
The Wind Cries Satie
Four videos made with the technical help (colour grading) of Gerhard Ehrmann, using extracts from two public domain films
- Gnossienne 1 -> A Propos De Nice -Jean Vigo -1930
- Travioles - Danses de Travers -> René Clair, "Paris qui dort / The Crazy Ray" 1927. In contrast to film music which has to support the content of the images, here the images are used to support the music. The theme of the film seems quite appropriate, a man very high up in Paris wakes up one day in a sleeping city...
Duet with Hartmut Schmid - texts and voice where I played all the instruments
Seven videos made with public domain films
