Ian Laycock: Do you know Kate Bush?
Florian Fricke: Yes, well she rang me up and wanted to adapt and record a song from Nosferatu. At that time I didn’t know who Kate Bush was, so I said no! Today I know, of course, and would have helped in some way. She’s good!
Ian Laycock: There is a dedication to you on the ‘The Hounds of Love’ album
Florian Fricke: Really! I have to say that I’ve been a purist for many years and it’s only now when my son is old enough to be up-to-date with all the latest things that I know who Kate Bush is or Tracy Chapman. Before I was uninformed about any of those areas. I wouldn’t listen to anything for the reason that a composer is very easily influenced, without noticing it. Without noticing he copies, and I didn’t want to do that.[From: Audion, 1996]
On the sleeve notes Bush thanks Florian Fricke and Werner Herzog. For the track ‘Hello Earth’ she made use of a piece of vocal music as used in Herzog’s ‘Nosferatu’, performed by the vocal ensemble Gordela.
"Popol Vuh is one of my favorite bands of all time. I'm not really sure how I came across Popol Vuh years ago, but they have consistently stuck with me as one of the most atmosphere-filled music groups that's able to conjure up such an incredible feeling, a meditative feeling, with simple but with awesome melodies, hypnotic". (2013)
