We recorded for over 8 hours in a beautiful church on the outskirts of Berlin, exhausting ourselves, and the incredibly talented members of the Sonar Quartett. This recording coloured the emotional tone of the film, “The Theory of Happiness” in beautiful and subtle ways. It’s safe to say that the music became another actor in the unfolding drama of the film.
I improvised the documentation of the process, and edited it a little time ago. This short is included in the DVDs of the film, and to commemorate the recording session, I’m taking off $10 from the Deluxe edition of the DVD (which includes the complete soundtrack CD), and $5 off the DVD of the film. Let's make it count in the next four weeks, until the Autumn Equinox (Sept. 21, 2015), and then the prices will jump up again.
