As part of The Impossible Project we have been inviting artists to conceive of, attempt and document an attempt at An Impossible Task or to undertake a conversation with Anna Tregloan where she attempts (the similarly impossible task) of capturing their creative endeavours in sketch form.
We asked Stephen Nicolazzo to attempt an Impossible Task, he replied:-
"With lockdown, with isolation, I wanted to attempt an impossible task that would bring me pleasure, keep me sane, and get me dancing. SO, I decided to attempt listening to every Madonna single, on vinyl, within an hour. As an artist with over 50 released singles between 1983-2020, this was inevitably going to fail, but I derived such joy from revisiting these works that it proved an important moment of light in my day. Of the 50+ singles by Madonna since 1983, I managed to only get to 1986, with about ten tracks total in an hour! I honestly thought I would get more in but was faced with the dreaded (but also EXTREMELY danceable) 12" edits of the 80s, where songs you love go on and on for 7 to 8 minutes with a continuous electronic beat. This video shows you the process of both attempting to play vinyls one after another in a very short time frame, with one hand, as the other was filming- and my silly and undying love and adoration for the music of a queer icon."
NEW TASKS AND IMPOSSIBLE OUTCOMES ARE BEING ADDED EVERY WEEK. COME BACK SOON.
