khm & Florian Walter

are working on

smash-up! Build-Up!

a sound/video performance during which Florian Walter directly interferes with the video worlds created by Karl-Heinz Mauermann; he modifies them, gently moulds or brutally destroys them. He plays with them, plays havoc with them, plays them into rack and ruin.

New images emerge from the sound, grow out of the music, shape different kinds of universe.


A video camera provides the basic material for Florian’s play with himself. In the piece the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, he confronts the bad guys of this world in a classic Western show-down. In kisses sweeter than winehe re-enacts great love scenes in movie history on his sax.
