I'M SURE YOU'VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE BUT YOU NEVER REALLY HAD A DOUBT...
IN COLLABORATION WITH AIMÉE THERIOT
I'M SURE YOU'VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE BUT YOU NEVER REALLY HAD A DOUBT (2020) is the outcome of a long term exchange between artist and musician Aimée Theriot and Luca Soudant. It started with sending each other audio snippets, text fragments and objects via post as a form of inquiry and research. The project experiments with karaoke-as-form and investigates failing as a generative force for creating bonds of solidarity. It raises questions such as: how can we listen to each other without judgement? What is the social potential of failing together instead of winning alone? If singing is a way for words to go through a body, what happens when we read theory as melody?
