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: Now we come to a question about the French Egg release of NOSFERATU. This is a compilation of already -released materials, and unreleased old materials, with new songs. Did you choose the tracks?
Florian Fricke: It actually was Part Two of the original soundtrack. The actual film music, the way it was composed for this movie, is on the record BRUDER DES SCHATTENS, SOHNE DES LICHTS. And when Werner was already almost finished with his film, he came to me and asked, ‘Florian, do you have music to be afraid by?’ And I thought no, no, no, no. But I remembered some electronic pieces in my big, big, big, box of old material from the early years, and in this box I found 'angst music'. And so we made a second record, besides BRUDER DES SCHATTENS we made 'music to be afraid by', NOSFERATU, part two, released by a French company. (Eurock)
