Truly royal melodies for Princess

„The Journey of the Storks“

Film music composers Tobias Boesel and Siegfried Rolletter accompanied the stork Princess musically for 10,000 km in a road movie. Grand landscape shots throughout 20 en-countries have influenced the music. The ZDF broadcasts the Tuesday-documentary “The Journey of the Storks” at prime time:
8.15 p.m. on
the 25th of April and the 2nd of May 2006.
The stork „Princess,“ protagonist of the film, starts her journey with an attached transmitter from Germany to the Indian Ocean. How can they be successful to accompany her on her way? After all, a stork does not dispose of a commonly known navigation system. The race begins. It is difficult for the crew to follow her air route in the car on the ground. The great adventure, the stresses and strains of the journey, the dangers as well as the fairy-tale component that surrounds the myth “stork,” can be found in the musical theme and its variations.
The two composers Tobias Boesel and Siegfried Rolletter have translated the topic into notes. “A wonderful task for us to compose a flying-stork theme, paired up with the excitement to musically catch up on the bird again and again,” thus the two composers. “Many storks are voiceless, they possess only instrumental sounds, for example via clattering with their beaks, others have very good voices, such as the Black Stork. Through the fascinating shots of the storks and the rhythm of the beating wings, we have tried to find our way into the birds’ souls and have made this the main theme.”
At the end of the journey, after five months, the crew really succeeds in finding Princess again in South Africa. Those who listen accurately can find the soft beating of the wings in three four time, which underline the flying shots at the end of the movie.
