Offshore Funk - Video Edit by "Unknown Artist"
In 2006 this video was posted using original footage from the feature film FAME to compose a video to our song “Crometown” … very cool, we think.
The music is taken from the Offshore Funk album “Crome” I did with Heiko Laux, released by Kanzleramt. We were very pleased seeing this, unfortunately the originator remains unknown up to this day.
West Motor Circuit 1998 - The Race
West Reemtsma did a follow up of the Sound Circle in 1998 centered around their Formula 1 engagement. Sounds you hear in this one are real Formula-1 driving machines. As fierce and loud as they are, the music should be, always keeping in mind the clubby aspect of it all.

Filmmuseum Berlin 2006
Mixing in a room with a ceiling height of 8 meters, walls cladded with 141 mirrors – reflections from everywhere. Very challenging environment to mix for, that’s why we decided to finalise the production in the room where it is perceived. The 20 minute documentary about the history of television in East and West Germany from 1945 until today runs 5 times every day.

West Sound Circle Live in E-Werk Berlin
A critically acclaimed club night in Berlin’s hottest techno club “E-Werk” back in 1995. Line-up included the ORB’s great Alex Patterson. The great David Moss lent us his voice for some experimental performances. It was repeated in Cologne in 1995 and the line-up included the already famous – and Berlin’s own – “Sun Electric”, the great Peter Lazenby and the soon-to-become-famous Propellerheads. Everyone remembers their 1998 release “Decks Drums and Rock ‘n Roll” featuring Dame Shirley Bassey in “History Repeating”.
Ballett: MARILYN - Landestheater Salzburg
Composition FJ Grümmer/Teo Schulte, Choreography: Peter Breuer, Story: Christian Fuchs.
A blend of old and new, remixes of 1950/60s songs and iconic tracks of the era. Amazing visuals in a theatre with a long tradition.
Ballett: MOVE Staatstheater Saarbrücken
Amazing dancers in this ultra modern 2002 piece of ballerina/choreographer Marguerite Donlon who – up to her move – worked at Deutsche Oper, Berlin. The choreographer wrote this 2 hr ballet evening when she got called to take over the Staatstheater Saarbrücken ballet company. When I was asked to do the music I was inspired by Prodigy and the likes. The Fairlight CMI Series III – which I used a lot at that time – helped shaping some ideas and some good sounds.
