About Creative Music Series #8 – Folded Time
36 musicians, 2 engineers
3 countries, 2 continents
36 improvised recordings
2 large ensemble works

From March to June 2020, during the most intense period of lockdown and the uncertainty of the Covid-19 Pandemic, 38 artists collaborated through time folding / folding time.

Isolated musicians improvised in their homes in sequence; files moved from musician to engineer, to the next musician and so on…. Improvisers created in the present, imagined what might come and responded to what had occurred. Engineers layered the performances in stages, creating architectural master halls from the sonic and visual material of the musicians’ locations. The result was 38 films. The passion, generosity, vulnerability, humour and strength in films document artists transcending separation through collaboration.   

TV8E is presented by the NOW Society.

Producer Dr. Lisa Cay
