Tibet – Journey across a forbidden country, January 29th, 2008, ZDF, 20:15 h

The film music to the ZDF two-part travel documentary "TIBET - Reise durch ein verbotenes Land" (german title)

The film music to the current ZDF two-part documentary “Tibet – Journey across a forbidden country” comes from the quill of the two composers Tobias Bösel and Siegfried Rolletter. The film was created according to the original diaries of the two Austrians Heinrich Harrer and Peter Aufschnaiter. The notes have remained undiscovered in the basement of the Swiss museum of ethnology in Zurich for the past decades. Impressions, which the ZDF was the first to ban on film and which draw an impressive image of a Tibet of yesterday and today. The adventurous documentary is broadcast on Tuesday night at prime time: 8.15 pm from the 29.01.2008.

Bösel and Rolletter present original Tibetan instruments with the one-of-a-kind shots of this travel documentary such as the Rag Dun- and the Dungchen-horn, the Tam Tam Besar-cymbal and a resonating bowl, just to name a few of the far-eastern instruments. The song of Tibetan monks can also discreetly be heard occasionally and thus gives more strength to the instruments according to the images.

Chinese plucked instruments such as the Zheng harp, flutes and Chinese gongs alternate. This way, the strong Chinese influence on Tibet is reflected in the music. The Tibetan-Chinese local colouring becomes part of an orchestral film music with clear melody and dynamic flow which reminds of grand cinema movies.
The composition is split into a “Tibet-motive”, which describes the beauty of this breathtaking landscape and an “adventure-motive”, which stands for Heinrich Harrer and Peter Aufschnaiter’s flight across Tibet. Both motives find variation for documentary scenes and exciting re-enactments.

Besides the dynamic orchestral music, we can listen to calm variations of the main theme, played economically with single instruments. For the documentary shots in the big cities modern music was produced.

This year, the Olympic Games will take place in China. The country presents itself as open, capitalist and hospitable. Foreigners are welcome. A country, which has made an enormous economical and societal development. Almost 60 years after the invasion of Tibet by China, Tibet is still a forbidden country. The complete disregard of Tibetan human rights, the ruthless destruction and the hostile attitude of the Chinese could not break the deeply rooted religiosity of the Tibetans. On the tracks of “7 years in Tibet”, in which Brad Pitt starred, the film looks into the past and the future and hopes that everything will turn out well after all.
