KROJC / FISCHERLE
John, Betty and Stella
LP/DL Monotype Records monoLP017
The album by Krojc & Fischerle duo is a cooperation of two musicians, who feel best wandering as creators around stylistic eclecticism. John, Betty & Stella is a directed radio drama based on vintage tapes for learning English. Krojc and Fischerle cut out textbook role plays from the source material gathered on old vinyl, in order to be processed by musical adaptation. The result is a funny and surreal collage of dialogues, sound effects and music resembling as a series of skits, which in the first place expose the sense of humor of its creators. The recordings saturated with tension make even a casual conversation about the nutritional values of porridge to appears in an ambience of a thriller and keep the listener in a hitchcock-ish suspense. – Bartosz Nowicki
