Talsperren werden meist als idyllische Naturparadise wahrgenommen, denn die vor Jahrzehnten erfolgten massiven Eingriffe in die Natur lassen sich mittlerweile nur noch schwer erahnen. In den dadurch neu entstandenen Lebensräumen entwickelte sich mit der Zeit allerdings oftmals eine üppige und teils seltene Flora und Fauna.
We are very happy and honoured, that the film score of "Manou the Swift" has been awarded with this year's German Film Music Award ("Deutscher Filmmusikpreis").

Its striking mountains, on whose top often a castle ruin is to be admired, make the region Hegau so special. For some mountains it can be guessed that they are of volcanic origin, but the volcanic, up to 100 m thick tuff layer can only be seen by people who pay attention to traces in stone.

Seeing is commonly referred to as the most important of the senses in man. In the animal world, however, survival often directly depends on seeing, if the prey spied as early as possible or the attacker can be detected in time.
The film score for "Spuren im Stein - Das Allgäu" is nominated for the Crystal Pine Award at this year's International Sound & Film Music Festival.
