Sound Direction “The Lost”

In my role as Sound Director for Reynolds Reynolds new work “The Lost” I will be responsible for the whole sound and music of the entire movie. Following our successful collaboration “Six Easy Pieces”, I am really looking forward to the new collaboration.


“Die Verlorenen” is an unfinished feature film from the 1930’s shot in the underground night club “Troika” in Berlin, a venue for avante-garde cabaret and performance similar to Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. The film captured some of the most shocking performances and characters from the 1930’s Berlin performance scene. “Troika” is being re-constructed in Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and will be open to the general public. Therefore the entire studio of Reynold Reynolds has moved into the HKW, producing the new film-works live to the audience. During the exhibition the activity of setting up and shooting become film-performances within an evolving set installation. The live construction of the image destroys the illusion of film, revealing the whole studio process as art.
