In 1992 I travelled 4000 km in India and Nepal. Along the trip I recorded street and temple musicians, religious ceremonies, street and nature sounds and mantras with my small video camera. Back home in Berlin I composed, arranged and recorded my first album “Karma Club“ with these documentary clips on an eight track tape recording machine in my home studio. The album was presented as a video installation with three syncronized videos, using a variety of beamers, monitors, flowers, incense sticks and mutated hindu gods. This multi-media sculpture appeared as a Hindu Temple and was shown in Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, Poland, USA and Japan. The album reached position #4 in the World Music Carts Europe in 1994.
