Silver City Revisited

“I was very impressed by the views from the different apartments in which I lived as a student in Munich. And I had a postcard collection. And in the attic of the film school I found a collection of old 78 Shellac records and numbered them consecutively with the same title: MOOD MUSIC. A recording mix did not happen. With the 16mm projector of the film school, I recorded them directly onto the audio track by rule of thumb.”
