Trivia

Mike W comments: "There is also a very strange Moog synthesizer score, repeating an electronic loop every few minutes again." This "loop" was mainly caused by a machine fault during the recording of the music in the studio. We increased the fault mechanically - no modern effects black-box at that time! - and the result is what finally went into the music track at the mix. See more »

Shocker
12 August 2006 | by haymohenrySee all my reviews

Hi there, by chance I saw a documentary about Mr. Michael Verhoeven about a week ago. While writing him, I also looked up the IMDb for data, and stumbled across your comment on his film "OK".

I was the sound engineer who dubbed and mixed the film back then.

As I speak "bavarian" I still have some clue lines present - after more than 30 years! Best regards from Costa Rica, Haymo Henry Heyder haymohenry@gmail.com
