The Mystery Behind Silent Moon
Updated on July 11, 2010, 12:49 PM - Written by Tim Buttner
I've got a query that has been unanswered for more than a dozen years... where did the song Silent Moon come from? The images this tragic sounding song brings to my head have been captured in a feature I wrote surrounding this song. The short story that this song tells me is breathtakingly beautiful, and is universal because there is no dialogue. The thoughts and emotions are understood in the visuals, and the characters need no explanation. Yet this song, which was featured on a Science Fiction Movie Themes CD, leads me to discover no science fiction movie exists prior to 1989 that contains this song. What? I know, for at least twelve years I've been asking myself the same question. The copyright on the CD I've owned for as long as I can remember is no more than two years after I was born. Now wouldn't one think that that would constitute a movie existing prior or around that date with this song in it? I mean composers Klaus Löhmer and Hans Gunther Wagener aren't even credited on the Internet Movie Database for such a movie. This song has Star Wars, Alien, Blade Runner, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind on the same CD, however it's the only one that doesn't exist. I could give you a million science fiction songs that could have been used as filler, so why does this song exist? Is there a science fiction movie that has this song? Or was it filler? The existence of this song is a mystery, but it amazes me that that mystery has inspired more out of me than what potentially was filmed for this song. I look forward to shooting this one day.
