hey 2012!

last year was kinda busy. at least around this time. i had 4 releases in the oven. but the situation was similar: after september 2010 (festkakao and two 7″es at the same time) i haven’t had a release until the beginning of 2011. even though we had plans for fall. last year it was stefanie sourials CD that came out more than 6 month later, this time it is the great fuegos album we have in the oven for so long already, and the armin lorenz 7″. both records will happen. and are more than worth their wait i can assure you.

but fettkakao wasn’t lazy. we had the FM4 soundpark studio 2 session, the youki, melanie friedls exhibition. every month another joyful moment, with so many nice people involved.

behind the scenes me, my friends and family were busier. and our ideas grew into reality. i started to take sewing lessons, learning to work with fabric with my father. and am at the beginning, still. nick and me came up w/ the idea to print textile, so that i can start learning to sew on those, which helps my father and me since we have defined projects that way. nick and me had the idea for a three colour print – cubes, that need to be put in a rather exact order – so that you -dear reader- can read the name of the little art platform in three colours… im glad i got help from agnes, who’s a very precise person and made us the perfect stencil for the screen. here’s an insight on how we work, put the pattern on the fabric. and. to be honest: i love the way it looks with the construction aspect of it.

this was the first attempt to make it right. the full disclosure will follow, also what we are using the fabric for.

fettkakao stoff = fettkakao fabric. and  is happening already. hello 2012. more soon.

when i did the 5 year fest last september – Rainer Krispel asked me if there would be a compilation along to the fest. no there wasn’t one. and with a reason: i did not want to try to capture something that seemed so alive to me – alive like the fest was. 10 days w/ exhibitions + shows at different places in vienna, so many acts… so many nice people coming and sharing. i thought i had documented a lot of  the music anyways –  with all the 7″e.p.’s, LPs and CDs released.

some months later the idea of doing a compilation made sense though. not for a jubilee, not for showing what this label has put out so far – but the people around me, with their great ideas.

everyone contributed songs never released before (or at least not in these versions). most recorded exclusively for this piece of mini plastic. i loved how Paper Bird and Crazy Bitch In A Cave came up with the idea to cover their partners or boss song (both on the label) – or TIRANA completing a song for the compilation, Vortex Rex doing it last minute, Sex Jams going different directions for it etc.

i am really thankful to all artistes involved. for making it such a great record.

here’s what it looks like. my old friend Lisa Max did it in Perth Australia, where the summer comes to its end finally.

piep!

stefanie is an actress, a performer and a friend who writes her own music. i have been telling this before: if she’s performing, having an act or simply playing the ukulele in front of a crowd – it will melt into one thing and become pretty entertaining.

i dont remember where i have met stefanie for the first time. probably at the theobald flat – the breeding place for (queer) feminist artists and intellectuals. and it must have been her show with beidl (her band at that time) where i have seen stefanie perform for the very first time. they opened up a show for ilsebill who had just released their 7″ on fettkakao. i was impressed. what an act! and her friends on stage had these big penises made out of… what was that?pap maché? dont know.

i think it took a year until i’ve seen stefanie doing the ukulele thing. it was a birhday party at elektro gönner. plaided did a short set, we did a few songs with the BHCB and stefanie was playing some  songs with veronika and julia from plaided. it was so good. especially iko iko they did together.

i cant even remember when i asked stefanie to do s/t on fkk. must have been in between our trips to various places. i saw her play weddings and parent’s birthday parties. saw her perform at the academy and on a burlesque show… and missed her very important play at the kosmos theater this winter. the one the CD is .. well embedded in. difficulties you might get being an artist.

thanks for taking a walk with the kakao stefanie!

here are some links. and pictures. and videos.
