Made for German television in 1972, this rare film documents Anima-Sound (duo Limpe and Paul Fuchs) as they caravan across Europe in a homemade trailer pulled by a tractor, intermittently setting up outdoor performances for (often bewildered) bystanders.
The film simultaneously captures the nascent countercultural energies of post-1968 Germany, detectable in the Fuchs’ otherworldly improvisations, and the day-to-day of living on the road as the couple tends to their two young children.

Made for German television in 1973, this concert film documents the collaboration between Austria's piano legend Friedrich Gulda and '70s Krautrock duo Anima-Sound.


The "play loud! (live) music series" has been initiated by filmmakers Dietmar Post & Lucía Palacios (responsible for monks – the transatlantic feedback, Reverend Billy, Klangbad, Franco’s Settlers). The series parts from three ideas, Alan Lomax's work as an archivist and chronicler, John Peel's BBC radio sessions and the work of Direct Cinema pioneers, such as, Maysles Brothers, Leacock, Wildenhahn and Pennebaker. Filming live shows meant not to do it in a TV style but in a very personal, intuitive and adventurous style – nothing is staged for filming. You go along as it happens. Some of the live performances are filmed with only one camera in one continuous shot without any edits. Some critics have labeled it as "filmed paintings/painted films".

play loud!’s music films have been called: “raw”, “rough”, “canny”, “straightforward”, “adventurous”, “witty”, “insightful”, “direct”, “non-tricksy”, “economic”, “minimal”, “unpretentious handheld camera work”, "artful film paintings" …

play loud!’s intention is to furthermore create an extensive archive of interesting popular music that includes also the possibility to screen/stream material that comes from other sources.
