Intermezzo (Notes on Film 04)

A brief excerpt from Charlie Chaplin’s The Floorwalker (1916) serves as starting sequence for INTERMEZZO. Pfaffenbichler arranges the takes that he has pulled from the original film, enlarged, and, in part, set as negatives or alienated in terms of color, according to a special verse scheme. At the same time, the accompanying music turns wilder and more impetuous, congenially expressing the frenzied standstill.
