Mustafa Khetty has now offered a solution to classical musicians who are out of work due to Covid-19, creating a piece of music (his upcoming new single ‘Solace’) where all the members of an orchestra can record their part remotely.
Mustafa is reaching out to classical musicians wherever they are located in isolation, giving them the separated audio tracks along with the written music for each instrument and asking them to record their part for the track, before he then puts them all together in production, forming the sound of a full orchestra. Mustafa is now also requesting that classical musicians who are out of work contact him if they would like to get involved with the project:
“Solace is an experiment to invite instrumentalists and vocalists to re-record parts as well as play individual parts with improvisations from their home studios. Ideas would be incorporated into a longer overture. It’s about exchange, collaboration, co-creation and sharing. Lockdown isn’t lockout, our lives are in our heads, we live in thought. Creativity, idea generation, imagination is the hallmark of our being. The coronavirus has made us truly digital natives cruising in uncharted terrain, realigning our work and engagements”.
