"The 12" vinyl "Stoikerinnen" (dt. for Female Stoics) by artist Kasia Fudakowski - born 1985 in London, lives in Berlin - is an integral part of an installation exhibited at Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof from June 14 to September 19, 2014, the third exhibition in a series by Fudakowski which began with "Enthusiastinnen" in 2012 and was followed by "Pessimistinnen" in 2013. Fudakowskis LP "Stoikerinnen" contains audio created, manipulated and mixed by the artist. The record enjoys a collaborative feel of many voices since it contains a train of commissioned performances by Fudakowski's friends including: Alexander Brenchley, Dorothy Feaver, Sam de Groot, Paul Haworth, William Kherbek, Helen Marten and Ayumi Rahn. Many of the texts and improvised dialogues on "Stoikerinnen" employ a comic darkness to focus on cliched extremes of Stoic reasoning. Fudakowski uses rough-mix samples of music from an as yet unreleased project by the producers Tobias Levin (Hamburg) and Volker Zander (Cologne), recorded live in 2014 at Levin's studio "Electric Avenue", Hamburg. The samples have a Dub feel and feature loose hand played tom fills and irregular mono-synth and upright bass lines under a slow and steady 808 drum grid. "Stoikerinnen" can be seen as 'comedy on Dub' and is Fudakowski's fan-nod to the manifold audio-arts of Hamburgian Postpunk humourisms, as well as late 90's British radio-creations such as Blue Jam. In co-production with Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof. Edition of 300 copies." (label info)
