about the music in ILLUSION:
„I liked composing my own music ever since I started playing the classic guitar at the age of 6. When it became clear, that we wanted Claire to sing in the movie, I thought about which kind of music would fit her nice chanson voice best. Mostly the ideas for melodies and lyrics came while I was motorbike riding. Then it was an interaction between Mira and me: she told me what kind of music she imagined for particular pictures or scenes and I tried to realize it, or I got an idea (like the choral “Oramuste”) which then led to certain images.“ (Antje Nikola Mönning)
