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 few 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). Each Saturday afternoon we are presenting a concert that connects six musicians from these locations and guests from other places to each other. The sessions are broadcast live with audio and video feeds from each site. 
 
Guests:
Matt Hughes, interactive visuals (Sydney, AU)
Mantautas Krukauskas, live electronics (Vilnius, LT)
 
Performers:
Constantin Basica (Palo Alto, CA)
Chris Chafe (Woodside, CA)
Henrik von Coler (Berlin, DE)
Fernando Lopez-Lezcano (San Carlos, CA)
Juan Parra (Ghent, BE)
Klaus Scheuermann (Berlin, DE) 
 
The ‘Quarantine Sessions’ are realized using free and open source technologies, which can be adopted by anyone: 
JackTrip (audio)
Jitsi (video)
OBS (streaming)
