The Austrian actor Tobias Moretti (61, "Inspector Rex") has a soft spot for music. He plays several instruments himself, studied the subject and composed some of it himself. In the first, he will also soon be playing the world-famous composer in the last years of his life in the film "Louis van Beethoven" (December 25, 8:15 pm). But what does Moretti actually think of modern music? For example about techno? In an interview with "Bild am Sonntag" he now gave insights into his taste.

"My daughter can do that at nine"

In general, he does not demonize this type of modern music: "A cool techno is great." But he scolded "dull, monotonous DJ inventions" that are actually no longer music: "Computer simulations, my daughter can do that at nine." This destroys human perception: "Every cattle seems to me to be more gifted than we do."

Moretti became even clearer: "One and a half hours only mmmmhhhh mmmmhhhhh, umpf, umpf, umpf, mmmmhhhh mmmmhhhhm without changing the subject, without modulation – a normal person can only endure that with an overdose." In general, the connection between music and feeling, the emotional aspect, is important to Moretti: "It opens the world for me. I couldn't understand jazz, no Miles Davis, no Prince, if I didn't have this access."
