Music Without Audiences: Displaced Confidentiality #MusicMonday
Do you remember the first concert you ever went to? Or maybe you remember the last time you saw a friend’s weird band at some dive somewhere. Musicians generally love to play in front of live audiences, and for professional musicians, live performance is a very real requirement. But what did musicians do in 2020? Here’s a series all about that very question from Damian Marhulets:
Six-part series called”Displaced Confidentiality”, in which I’m dealing with a question what does a live musical performance means when facing the absence of any audience. This series is my personal exploration into a new kind of musical intimacy which possibly arises when such traditional factors of a musical performance as audience-oriented intentionality, immediate communication or human theatricality are gone. Displaced Confidentiality is a project developed by Ars Aperta – Hannover e.V. and it’s sponsored by the Niedersächsische Sparkassenstiftung as well as Kulturbüro Hannover.
