Eastern Daze #13 Grupa Etyka Kurpina – The dream is just around the corner
8 April 2019
SO THE DREAM IS NOT ABOUT SOMETHING ESTETIC,
THIS IS THE HISTORY OF OUR ENVIRONMENT,
YOU LIVE YOUR DAY, AND THE SOUNDS, MUSIC,
WAVES AND VOICES ARE CONSTANTLY AROUND YOU,
AND YOU CAN NOT ESCAPE FROM IT.
IT JUST LIKE IT IS
SOMETIMES IT’S NIGHTMARE
SOMETIMES IS HOODIE
SOMETIMES YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING
BUT YOU WAIT FOR IT
THE BEST SOLUTION IS SPACE
AND I’VE DONE
THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF THAT HOW WE DO MISTAKES
“Grupa Etyka Kurpina” is a project that explores the techniques of audio collage and plunderphonics using samples cut from audio cassettes, VHS cassettes, old radio shows, commercials, and other assorted sources. The work is assembled live using cassette tape players. It is run by theater director, and founder of the independent record label Pionierska Records, Adam Frankiewicz. His work is inspired by the achievements of the artists associated with the Experimental Studio of Polish Radio. Adam has designed and recorded dozens of sound collages released on 9 albums in the spirit of D.I.Y.
