Music has always played a central part in the art of film director Werner Herzog. It is never an 'add-on' but always an integral part of any creation, whether feature-film or documentary.
In 2004 Werner Herzog came to Munich to see Stefan Winter because he wanted to find some very personal music for the documentaries »The Wild Blue Yonder« and »The White Diamond«. Stefan Winter played the music of »Colla Parte«, »Colla Voche«, »Janna« and other sounds performed by the artist Ernst Reijseger. Werner Herzog found what he was looking for: "I want to use imagery and sound in a way you have never before experienced." This musical vision led to extraordinary recording sessions in Paris, Ludwigsburg and Munich.
Werner Herzog was joined by Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger, Senegalese singer Mola Sylla, and the Voches de Sardinna called Tenore e Cuncordu de Orosei. An initially unlikely assemblage became a powerful, unique and extraordinary work. Uniting this with vintage recordings from Friedrich Händel's "Dank sei dir Gott" featuring singer Emmi Leisner, a very original score was produced. This album is the AudioFilm [cinema for closed eyes] »Requiem For a Dying Planet« by Stefan Winter, inspired by works recorded for Werner Herzog.
