"I´ve been listening a lot to the two DeFilm albums lately as I have borrowed a CD burner and transferred the best songs to CDR. I must say that the whole album "Coming to your heart soon" is really good. Especially the songs "Whale song", "I see light", "Make believe" and "Is it true" are great! And the Extended Remix of "I saw your dream" is fantastic!!!!It´s just too bad that so few people know who this great band is/were!!!"

"Needless to say 'Whalesong' is my favourite. I've liked more the sound in DéFilm's songs than Ranum's ones, maybe because I liked very much Tommy Corfixen's voice --a lot more than Jesper Ranum's--, and because it reminds me of the sound of early Alan Parsons Project, which I love."

"About Ranum's work, I like more "Slowdown", although the song I liked the more of those that Poul was so kind to send me is 'You are the night', which belongs to "Second". Very sweet music. I have been under a lot of pressure these days and these songs have been soothing me for a while. They gave me back a sense of melody from a new source. I really can't say I did not like one of them. "

A very nice,slow and emotional album

DéFilm formed in 1982, was a Danish concept-rock group,that enjoyed moderate success and popularity within their home country, and parts of Western Europe during the 1980s.
The band's name was derived from the remnants of an old Danish theater, whose name (while still intact) was Kommende Film. When the band opted to use the theater as a recording studio, the remaining letters spelled out "de Film", prompting the band to use the name as their own.

Soren Riis-Vestergaard:
"I have been making music, since I was a kid. Through the years, I have come to find that music can help build bridges and connect people like nothing else. It communicates where other means fail and can bring an incomparable sense of joy and freedom to both listener and musician.
"While co-writing and recording two successful albums in the 1980's, I tasted the realities of the music-making industry. From that experience, I decided to lay aside my plans for a professional musical career in order to keep my music spontaneous and free. In the years since, I have faithfully reminded myself that music-making for me is about inspiration, not ambition.
"Since then, I have found that my most rewarding times making music have been with people who feel the same as I do. That is why I am grateful and honored to be collaborating with Scott, an inspired lyricist, and sometimes melody maker, with whom I share a passion for quality songwriting and a vision for 'Joining Continents Through Music.'
"My personal discography to-date includes, among others published works, these commercial music albums:
1985– Title: DeFilm (Medley/EMI) Band: DeFilm
1987– Title: Coming To Your Heart Soon (Medley/EMI) Band: DeFilm
2000– Title: Femininum (Davs Records) Band: Femininum

Thanks a lot for putting both albums of De Film on your Blog. Really love them, although so far I was only familiar with I Saw Your Dream and Here We Are.
