Synopsis: The source of inspiration for Wolfgang Lehmann's silent film poem about the sea DER KLANG DES MEERES (The Sound of the Sea), which was created in collaboration with Telemach Wiesinger, were the "soul images" described by Herman Melville in his novel Moby Dick: Let an absent-minded person sink into deep dreams...and without fail he will lead you to water...yes, everyone knows that meditation and water are intimately bound to each other!" In clear black and white images that are made strongly rhythmic by the editing, a visual composition of intense musicality unfolds in the quiet of DER KLANG DES MEERES, a composition that compresses into an imaginary trip into a landscape of waves on the Atlantic Coast. DER KLANG DES MEERES is silent. The film is the "twin" to the music film MEER with a composition by Misato Mochizuki.
