fragile confinement

Unable to create sound together on their respective instruments and forced to confine their normal sound making due to Covid-19 restrictions, Jana and Kelsey seek not only to discover how they can improvise together online, but also how they can embrace these limitations to make site-specific free improvisations within their quarantine environment.

Over the course of their lockdown in Hamburg they have adapted their collaborative practice by turning their attention to their quarantine environment and exploring the sound possibilities of the everyday objects surrounding them. Through improvisation, Jana and Kelsey consider these objects as instruments that could replace, expand or add to their own instrumental practice. They explore what new and creative sound worlds are offered in an environment shaped by its limitations.
