Rhapsody of Flowing Colors / Chapter 8 “In Rust We Rest” – allegro

This is chapter 8 of my video project Rhapsody of Flowing Colors. This time I found inspiration on one of my hometowns best known locations: the Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage Site. Zollverein Coal Mine and Zollverein Coking Plant ranked among the largest of their kinds in Europe until they were closed in 1986. I have been there a lot of times and did always feel inspired by the great variety of the different shades of rust.

Dies ist Kapitel 8 meines Video-Projekts Rhapsody of Flowing Colors. Diesmal fand ich Inspiration bei einer der bekanntesten Orte meiner Heimatstadt: dem UNESCO-Welterbe Zeche und Kokerei Zollverein. Zeche und Kokerei rangierten bis zu ihrer Schließung im Jahr 1986 unter den größten dieser Art in Europa. Ich bin schon oft dort gewesen und fand die große Variation an unterschiedlichen Rost-Tönen sehr inspirierend.
