Here is an Interview about the music of “BEUYS” produced by Deutsche Filmakademie and Filmuniversität Potsdam-Bablesberg.

Watch the interview here

The short film by Sophia Bösch is a quiet, thoughtful and magical film about a young girl finding spiritual strength – deep in the woods of Sweden.
It was first shown at BERLINALE 2018 (Perspektive Deutsches Kino) and won numerous prizes, most prominently Studio Hamburg Nachwuchspreis and Deutscher Kurzfilmpreis. The music was nominated for Best Score at the Festival International du Film d’Aubagne.

In the year 2034, climate change is in full force. 31 states of the global South sue Germany for compensation. They are doomed to destruction without the support of the international community. The film raises questions of responsibility and demands a right of nature to integrity.


Phasen (Experimental)

R: Jannis Greff, Lena Lemerhofer, Damian Scholl

Jannis, Lena and me had the idea to make a film where music and film are done seperately. How could we do this? We agreed on a very exact timetable: We have divided the whole of 4:33 (…) into three large parts and each into small intersections (always using Fibonacci relations). All of these sections have an exact length and also: a motto (like „breathing“, „crumbling“, „blinking“, etc…).

So Jannis and Lena cut the film using their own private footage on their smartphones. I composed and recorded the music with WDR Funkhausorchester. In the end we put the two artworks together. Et violà!
