Reviews during cinema release #2

“The gallery of women that drive artists crazy ranges from Mörike’s gypsy Peregrina to Anonioni’s mystery women who vanish in the fog. Ruth is one of them. With great devotion Rainer Kirberg draws the most beautiful portrait of her fragile nature.”

Newly composed soundtrack with Robert Wyatt

For our cinema release of The Sleeping Girl in Germany we composed a new soundtrack!

Especially for the new soundtrack, we founded the project Sleeping Men. It consists of electronic music producer and composer Daniel Paul Behnemann (founder of Berlin House label Cabinet Records), co-producer and music publisher Tøni Schifer (Crippled Dick Hot Wax) and director Rainer Kirberg. Further leading composers were Sascha Gottschalk (Pulsar Mod Club Thief) and Moritz Reichelt (Der Plan), important protagonist of German New Wave (Neue Deutsche Welle).

With Karl Blake (Shock Headed Peters), another influencial musician contributed to the project’s anchoring in an important era of pop history. Finally, the legendary Robert Wyatt (The Soft Machine) strongly supported the musical bridge into the early 1970s.

We are looking forward to presenting you our film with the fresh soundtrack in German cinemas from January 17th, 2013!
