A piece designed to bring people together from all around the world during COVID-19. Uses submissions from Skykey, John R. Akins, Josh Oxford, Francisco Dean, Li-Chuan Chong, and Lannier Sammons.
Composer: Gabriel McDerment
In March, 2020, I sent out a call for submissions to the Quarantine Collective. I sent a beat (that now underlies the piece) and had people send in clips to be overlaid onto it. Spanning 3 continents and 7 outstanding individuals, the pieces reflect incredible artistic capability and the community that has helped me get through COVID-19. We may all be apart, but that does not mean we are any less together.
