For Pynchon-Fans:
Yes, I can answer your question unmistakably: GRAVITY’S RAINBOW would be a component and not the basis of the whole project.
(excerpt from a letter to Thomas Pynchon`s agency)

The filmscore co-operation with Robert Forster (“Go Betweens”) was a desire of the director, who is a big fan of the Go-Betweens, “nobody transports words better through melodies.” Forster had already brought in 2 Songs in Bramkamps film „Conquest of the Centre". Robert Forster's Lyrics were inspired by the last page of Pynchons “Gravity's rainbow”. The recording was made in a berliner hotel room with 2 microphones and a Nagra. On the occasion of the “Go-Betweens” - Reunification in the year 2000 the music channel „VIVA to 2/zwobot“ broadcasted an 2-hour Go-Betweens Special, where Forster also reported about the shooting in Babelsberg.

The orchestra accompaniment to the Song was composed by the young composer Max Knoth (see left). From this co-operation a musical strategy for the whole film was developed. The compositions of Max Knoth were performed by the German Filmorchester Babelsberg under the direction of Bernd Wefelmeyer, who is a professor of Sound/film music at the HFF teaches.
