Remarks

I have always been asking myself what might be the meaning of the titles ‘Dream Part 4', ‘Dream Part 5' and ‘Dream part 49'. The following connection with the work of Lamonte Young may shed some light on it.

In july 1969 La Monte Young and Marian Zarzeela were in Munich for their first public performance of their so called ‘Dream House’ concept. Young used the term ‘Dream House’ for his experiments with environments of continuous light and sound that he started in the early sixties.
Florian Fricke reviewed the Munich concert for the Süddeutsche Zeitung (july 8, 1969)

Part of this concert was released on the ‘Black Album’ (Edition X, 1969):

side 1
31 VII 69 10:26 - 10:49 PM Munich From Map Of 49's Dream The Two Systems Of Eleven Sets Of Galactic Intervals Ornamental Lightyears Tracery (23:03)

side 2
23 VIII 64 2:50:45-3:11 AM The Volga Delta From Studies In The Bowed Disc (20:21)

Quotes

1996:
Gerhard Augustin: I saw the film "Herz aus Glas" (‘Coeur de Verre’) and I found that not very much of your music was used. In the album with the same name of the film, COEUR DE VERRE, is Popol Vuh's original album to be the soundtrack for the movie?
Florian Fricke: It was different. Sometimes they're produced for Werner Herzog's work. Sometimes he came to my house and he asked please open your box, where I have my tapes from my productions. When we are listening to music, sometimes he lifts his finger and says this part of your music would be great music for a film. Sometimes we have done in a very short day and night, time in studio at the end of production from his movies, chosen the music like this. The special music for COEUR DE VERRE ("Herz aus Glas") is Popol Vuh, but sometimes he needs music from Richard Wagner. But Richard Wagner never made film music for Werner Herzog. (Eurock)
