Live accompaniment to Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" (1963)
Peter Pichler at the Mixturtrautonium at the "Film Music Days" Sachsen-Anhalt in Halle.
The threatening bird noises in the film all came from the Trautonium. Hitchcock found no natural birds that seemed creepy enough to him.
"Thank you for taking the trip to Halle and giving us this special evening. We were also very satisfied with the well-filled cinema and the different ages. It was really very interesting to see this film together with the special sound of the Trautonium… thank you for the wonderful evening "
