One morning someone knocked on my door and it was one of the guys from the Spätkauf*.  They all know I am a musician.  They said they were making a film about the Spätkauf and would I come over and play some background music.  So, I said yes, and I did. 

I had no idea what the film was about, what kind of theme it was.  They just said don´t play a recognizable tune because they couldn´t afford to pay rights.  So, I simply improvised lines when they told me to play.   The film played in several theatres.

So, I am playing improvised background music behind a film of which I have no idea what it is about. 

They won some kind of prize.  I don´t think they put my name on it.



* Spätkauf = late buying at a store in Berlin
