Peter Thomas in Orbit

by Nicolas Magenham

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

You’ve also made art films, like The Endless Night in 1963. Will Tremper was more or less considered as the German answer to the directors of the French New Wave. How have you collaborated with him?

I only have one word to define my work with Will Tremper: dreamy! He was very open-minded. Concerning The Endless Night, I must tell you about this anecdote that happened one night while I was present at the film shoot at the Tempelhof airport in Berlin. It was 10pm and we were awaiting the go-ahead to start shooting, which was set to take place after the last flight at 10:30. The passengers of this flight from Paris got off and, among them, there was a young woman accompanied by musicians. Intrigued by this fantastic team, Will approached them and proposed that they took part in the scene. It turns out it was Wanda Warska, a Czech jazz singer. So, Will asked me if I could find a piano as quickly as possible. I said that it was 10:30 at night and that the piano rental shops were shut! But he insisted so much that after having moved heaven and earth I managed to find a Steinway that was 2m75 in length. It was brought to the airport by a completely dumbstruck delivery man! Watch the film - Wanda and her musicians are wonderful. When you're motivated by a love of music, anything’s possible.

One year later, you changed genre with Traitor’s Gate by Freddie Francis (1964), a film featuring Klaus Kinski as a burglar. The music is very elegant and a little melancholic, even if the rhythm is that of a joyful jazz ride. What do you remember about this film?

The harpsichord wasn’t played in a baroque style, but with a jazzy feel, accompanied by a rhythmic ensemble. We must pay particular attention to the work of the musicians. Each time, it’s an out of the ordinary adventure. There’s a lot of improvisation in my recordings and the musicians like that. As for me, I like the musicians because I think that they add considerable value to my music. How it’s interpreted counts for 50% of a piece of music. Sorry, I’ve gone off on a tangent, but I think of something and then I’m afraid I’ll forget to say it: did I tell you that George Clooney used 6 of my titles for his first film as a director, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002)?

Speaking of reworks and tributes to your music, let’s finish with your most famous theme, that of the cult series Raumpatrouille Orion (Rolf Honold, 1966). What was the huge success like for you? How did you react when young pop groups like Pulp or Röyksopp sampled parts of this soundtrack for their own songs?

Believe it or not, I composed this theme like I usually do, in the most natural way. The result was a huge success, and more than 50 years later it remains a great joy for me. There are currently 250 versions of this piece of music available on the internet and the samples by the groups that you mention obviously go straight to my heart.
