The fact that praying mantises can also live in Germany is no longer a secret in the Kaiserstuhl region. But not only the local climate and the flora and fauna are special, but also the geomorphological processes of the past, wich gives perfect surroundings for excellent wines and other culinary specialties.

To find out why all these special factors come together around the Kaiserstuhl, how they were created and which special features are to be found beyond that, the presenter team Sven Plöger and Lena Ganschow are cycling this time on an excursion through the Kaiserstuhl.

Main instrument of the filmscore for 'Der Kaiserstuhl' is the guitar. Usually as an electric guitar but also as acoustic instrument, it describes the vastness of the Kaiserstuhl, the organic and the living. But also the dreamy, spherical or pensive side of the film is described by alienated guitar pads and effects, playful motifs and endless guitar sounds.

Detailed sound design has been created to adequately bring 
animations, high-speed recordings and many other details from the visual level also to the audio level.

The documentary "Spuren im Stein - Der Kaiserstuhl" will be broadcasted on SWR on April 15, at 9:00 pm, and will be available on the SWR media library.
