Louis Jucker has always had an affection for second-hand suitcases. Perhaps because he only travels by train, perhaps because they embody the instability of places, the impermanence of things. Or maybe just for practical reasons, because they’re designed to collect and transport his electro-acoustic bricolages and other little sonic tricks that he takes pleasure in unpacking and unveiling in the course of his concerts. Suitcase Suite condenses everything Louis Jucker likes to do with his life: rummage flea markets, tinker in his attic, invite other artists to join his projects, recycle clumsiness and happy accidents, share emotions, elaborate shows like mysterious laboratories, tweak knobs, amplify mechanic noises, distort sounds and images, patch cables and sing with friends. The project begun in 2019, launched by a writing commission from Nouvel Ensemble Contemporain (NEC). Louis Jucker accepted the commission on the following conditions: he would have the right to build all the instruments, be present on stage to sing the songs with the rest of the orchestra, be allowed to make a record or several on this basis, and continue the project beyond the scope of the commission. 4 years later, “Suitcase Suite” is released on Humus Records
