In spring, 2017 Florian Walter came across the Kaiser-Antonino Dance Ensemble. By order of the 38th Duisburger Akzente originated the dance production "Ankündigung" (announcement).
Wolfram Lakaszus - in the ensemble especially in charge of sound and design - and Florian Walter proceeded on an investigation tour by the border area between installation art and music.
Ten new sound objects were created.
The Hechtyphon is the first. A prototype for a new wind instrument.
Externally and functionally the Hechtyphon is related trumpets, trombones and clarinets.
They succeeded in advancing the prototype, so, Florian Walter could use the instrument already for the production "Ankündigung".
Lakaszus and Walter plan to explore the potentialities of the Hechtyphon further and they started looking for economic support.
