Day 219 — Thinking of films
08-March-1972 (Mittwoch–Wed.)


Spent most of today in the lab. It sort of drove me nuts and made me frustrated. To get some of these things are extremely hard.

Anyway, called up Herr L. and found out that the possibility for the film is still good. Hoping.

I end almost every long day in the electronic music lab by listening to my film music tape. Sounds great because of the loud speakers. What a way to rest my ears and end the day.


The lab. I seem to be in the electronic music lab all of the time. I wonder (now), where were the other students? I imagine that if no one was there, I just continued to work, and when others were there, I practiced.

Film ideas. Today explains why I was thinking of abstract films yesterday. It sounds like the student film project might still be a possibility. So, what do I imagine? An abstract film of the human body. Naked human body. If I had a girlfriend, would I have been thinking of making a film on the royal palaces of Vienna, instead?

Film music. Surprise, I’m listening to film music in the electronic lab at the end of some sessions. Loud. I couldn’t do that in my apartment. I always have been and still am a big fan of music for movies. My dream, is to one day, write some music for film. Will never happen.
