Quarantine Sessions #2 | A Distributed Electroacoustic Network Improvisation
Live streaming: https://youtu.be/E3TcwZXAwJw

The Coronavirus Crisis has changed our lives and we are in the midst of a long period without concerts as we knew them. In addition to the problem of large audiences, the regulations also make it 'virtually' impossible for musicians to get together, to rehearse, or perform. However, many technologies and solutions are already available, helping us to find new ways of collaborating and transporting our work to audiences.

In the past two weeks we have been programming, testing, and rehearsing in an online environment between California, which is facing a 'shelter-in-place' situation, Berlin (DE) with strict 'Kontakt- und Ausgangsbeschränkungen', and Ghent (BE). We are now announcing our first public concert, connecting six musicians from these locations and broadcasting the result as a Youtube live stream with audio and video feeds from each site.  More...
