In Labour. Unsound festival, Krakow 2014
“….Once we realized we were approaching the 5 a.m., we ran to our place in Kazimierz and passed out, excited for what would grace us on Saturday. That excitement never wavered, as sleep didn’t really happen. After eating toast and guzzling down instant coffee(s), we went to Laznia Nowa Theatre to see the massively stacked bill of Stine Janvin Motland, Pharmakon and Swans. With Unsound providing buses to the show—it was east of the central part of the city—this was a special event with a crowd that was already abuzz and packed out by 6:45 p.m. By 7, Stine Janvin Motland took to her post, but not onstage. The Norwegian artist had people in the crowd puzzled, wondering where she was throughout; even though she was behind the curtain, recording all our conversations—sampling, manipulating and singing over them to an impressive and wide reaction from the crowd. Some were appalled, some were curiously unnerved, while we were intrigued and impressed that Motland used us as part of her performance.”

– The first one: Stine Janvin Motland all smiles after the concert.
– The second one: Audience wondering; where the hell is she?And added value: The shocked pedestrians walking by the shop believing that a lot of people were staring at them through the windows!
