We Are Are We


Better Music presents the unreleased score to an unreleased film by a well-known Hollywood movie director, composed by German band We Are Are We. While driving home one evening, after a long day working on the final edit of his film, this well-known Hollywood movie director clicked a song on his son's iTunes, which immediately caught his attention. He listened to it over and over again. The powerful and yet very melodic and melancholic song was exactly the kind of music his movie needed. On the same night, he made his agent contact the two German guys who had produced the track that had so deeply moved him. Within three days they all met in editing suite #23, Universal City, watched the edit and talked about plans to make the whole soundtrack in their style. It took We Are Are We three weeks of 24-hour shifts, to produce all the music for the 100-minute Hollywood blockbuster-to-be. The two boys were thrilled to have been given such an amazing opportunity. And Mr. Director was more than happy with the final result. But then it happened. The studio blocked the whole project; just four months before its international premiere -- for legal reasons, for reasons we are not allowed to talk about, or for the real reasons we will never know. Only to say, that the fiasco has to do with money, corruption, vanity, and studio politics. And the real tragedy was that the rough-cut movie had received amazing feedback at the test screenings. One trusted critic had described it as an "absolute masterpiece." Just imagine the numbers: $110 million dollars invested in production. Four years of planning and hard work, a cast and crew of over 300 people including three household names in the lead roles. And one film that will never see the light of day. What does remain is the music. We Are Are We's compositions, the musical soundtrack to support the vision of a great director, a vision that will never be seen by the public. Therefore, this music will remain the only evidence of this Hollywood mystery case.
