A dream came true! svenson suite developed, directed and produced this 6-episode documentary for the german public broadcaster ZDFkultur with the guest-Bands CocoRosie, Little Dragon, Boy, Dillon, Tu Fawning and The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. For each episode we invited one Band to the broadcasting house of the former German Democratic Republic in Berlin’s Nalepastraße. World-famous for their brilliant acoustics, the recording studios at Nalepastraße draw appreciation from pop musicians and classical conductors alike. AUFNAHMEZUSTAND takes a journey back to the beginnings of recording, when bands stood side by side in the studio to record their music. The worn carpet may be brought along from the rehearsal room, instrument cases may be left standing about, everyone is to feel comfortable and play their music the way they always wanted. Or maybe even the way this special place inspires them to. In a very intimate atmosphere without any glaring show lights, AUFNAHMEZUSTAND takes a stunning look behind the scenes. There is a god and it is called MUSIC!
The sequel won the GERMAN CAMERA AWARD 2013.
