How can we support musicians during the lockdown? Right at the beginning of the Corona crisis in March 2020, we asked ourselves this question and developed the project Social Distancing – Musical Approaching almost overnight. Composers of all stripes were invited to compose a one-minute piece and produce a short video clip for it. The last bars of each piece were passed on to the following musician, who then linked their composition to the previous one. The result: a music collage of a different kind. Numerous requests were received, from which we selected 16 composers. In June 2020, we presented the collage under the name "Corona Symphony" in a private performance to all project participants.
