In autumn 1996 SUPERFLEX met jazz musician, composer and sound designer August Engkilde with whom they shared a common interest in animal acoustics and fascinating images of African animals and joined forces in Superflex Music. The music of Warum sollten wir Angst vor großen Tieren haben? was originally released on CD in 1997 and is based on recordings of African animals and the experiments done in Superflex Music's bioacoustic laboratorium.
