Q: How has the crisis affected your everyday life?

A: Now working from home. Deep limitations to my collaborations. Nearly all of my performances were cancelled.

Q: How has the crisis affected your practice?

A: My practice is largely based on collaboration, so much of my practice was eliminated. However, it give me time to work on my chops, read, experiment and study.

Q: How has the crisis affected you economically?

A: I have a day job that allows me to work from home. So far, minimal. But income from my performances is shot.

Q: What is the role of culture in a time of crisis?

A: I think we can use crisis as an opportunity to be reflective. It can avail us to other ways of thinking when we get too steeped in our craft. For example, as a musician, I’ve turned to watching films and reading books more. This can help to shape my art in different ways. In short, we still need culture to remind ourselves of the humanity of which we’ve been robbed.
