In the months of the Corona Virus Crisis (Spring 2020), many musicians got into existential trouble due to cancelled concerts and postponed projects. The countless videos of musical Skype-sessions showing whole orchestras piecing together any repertoire pieces seem to serve not only as time killer but as a proof of one’s agency as a musician under tight restraints.
But what about imaginative and collaborative musical acts as improvisation, instant composing, performative or installative stagings? What kind of creative projects, collective practices and processes leading to new types of aesthetic products can emerge from these dissociated circumstances?
