The Art of Doing Nothing: a feminist manifesto album [artwork by Chaja Hertog]

Stephanie Pan’s The Art of Doing Nothing: a feminist manifesto is about listening to yourself and the world around you. About saving power to explode with power. It is not about doing nothing. It is a proposal for navigating choice in a chaotic world. Celebrating qualities like intuition, vulnerability and emotionality, it is a vision on how to embrace the magical space of not knowing. Stephanie Pan and Ensemble Klang lure you onto a sonic roller-coaster that dives and soars through lush dramatic song, delicate soundscapes, post-punk noise, and pounding tekno beats.
