„The Slavs – Our Mysterious Ancestors“ Documentary Drama


We are pleased to announce the first broadcast dates of „The Slavs – Our Mysterious Ancestors“. The film music was composed by Lars Löhn.
The documentary drama deals with the history of the pagan people of the Slavs, who settled between the Elbe and the Oder about 1300 years ago. Although the people never founded a state, they managed to defend their customs and rites against great opponents for centuries and have thus decisively shaped today’s nations around these areas.

Broadcasting Date:

Wir freuen uns, die ersten Sendetermine von „Die Slawen – Unsere geheimnisvollen Vorfahren“ verkünden zu dürfen. Die Filmmusik wurde von Lars Löhn komponiert.

Das Doku-Drama beschäftigt sich mit der Geschichte des Heidenvolkes der Slawen, die sich vor ca. 1300 Jahren zwischen der Elbe und der Order niederließen. Obwohl das Volk nie einen Staat gründete, schafften sie es ihre Bräuche und Riten über Jahrhunderte gegen große Gegner zu verteidigen und haben so auch die heutige Nationen um diese Gebiete entscheidend geprägt.

Music score for Bugs: Nature’s Little Superheroes

It’s official: L&L team is delighted to present an incoming project.
The music score for BUGS: NATURE’S LITTLE SUPERHEROES, filmed by Björn Platz and produced by a&o buero film production gmbh.

After being selected as Best Science & Knowledge Project by Sunny Side pitching sessions in 2015, the project is taking shape. a&o buero film production gmbh is one of Germany’s most acclaimed documentary film production companies. Co-owned since 2004 by the International Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker and producer Tristan Chytroschek, their films have received numerous international awards and run regularly at festivals like One World Berlin, the San Francisco Film Fest, FIFA Montreal, to name just a few.

This is a remarkable science documentary. It shows us the importance of knowing the microcosm. Tiny bugs are the actual heros.
While waving your hand trying to kick a flea out of your pasta bowl or making a face spraying ants from your plants, have you considered that one living creature might be amazingly much more ingenious then you?
The specular eye of custom-made cameras closely observe this little world; by using special filming techniques taking us deep inside into the unknown everyday life of bugs.

We are following the quest of three researchers and their individual research object. Their aim it is to learn from the tricks of these little aliens. Studying and analyzing them, we don’t even imagine how many new solutions they „offer“ to our problems.
The movie jumps from one continent to another, from a ladybird drop of blood to a silk moth. Step by step we discover how strong they are, how many materials they can generate to protect their bodies and how these three brilliant men lead researches to solve medicine´s pressing problems as well as our dependency on oil.

By way of conclusion, this documentary is a breathtaking journey; our team is proud to be part of it.


Music Score for The Borderless Sky

Our team is proud to work on a new project.

Produced by Taglicht Media, „The Borderless Sky“ is the upcoming documentary project broadcasted as a 5 part  ARTE documentary series and cinema documentary about the „world’s highest ceiling“. In five adventures stories, photographers travel to Canada, Australia, Scandinavia, Indonesia and Chile. This is the story of their mission: to remind us that we all live together under an infinite roof.  The question is: When was the last time you looked up to feel it?

Five photographers (amongst them: Babak A. Tafreshi, Bernd Pröschold and Yuichi Takasaka featured at The World At Night) use hi-tech cameras to challenge extreme climates and unexplored panoramas. They collect untold pictures and astonishing timelapse footage in order to create a bridge between art, humanity, and science.
After receiving the support of the Creative Europe Programme – MEDIA of the European Union, the project is in post-production and we are currently composing the music and we will take the audio post production in the next couple of months.

We are happy to contribute with music score to this brilliant documentary project which enchants us with its poetic vision of five dreamers and their quest. Their bravery will let the audience participate in an incredible trip of discovery and surprise. It fascinates us with remote landscapes where the sky demonstrates majestic movements.
