Eliscu: “Neben meiner Haupttätigkeit als Oboist bei den Münchner Philharmonikern spielte ich auch im Münchner Bach-Orchester. Elvira Senft, die als Sekretärin bei Karl Richter für das Bach-Orchester arbeitete, hatte auch eine Filmproduktion, DNS-Film. Da sie mich kannte, rief sie mich eines Tages an und sagte: Bob, wir müssen eine Filmmusik für Peter Lilienthal aus Berlin haben! Willst Du das machen? – Und als ich sie fragte, wann die Musik fertig sein müss, meinte sie nur: vorgestern!" (from: E.Schneider, Handbuch Filmmusik I - Musikdramaturgie im Neuen Deutschen Film, 1986, p.59)


Joseph D.Rowland (Pallbearer):

"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)
