The Lower Saxon has never made a secret of the fact that Christopher von Deylen, whose project is called "Schiller", is an ardent cineaste. Nor has he ever made a secret of his love of film music. But in contrast to his earlier, incidentally highly successful albums, this time the 51-year-old has realised all the acoustic requirements for imaginary soundtracks. He composed epic clouds of sound, in the spirit of Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh or, in places, Ennio Morricone, in order to record them with a 40-piece symphonic orchestra in Vienna's Synchron Stage Studio. In conversation, the likeable, rather shy von Deylen is still surprised at how sovereign and emotional the final result sounds.
