I read everyone’s opinions and I find them very stimulating, right now we are in a state of crisis that only in movies could I have imagined.
I propose this scenario, in Mexico where the cases of COVID-19 are still small, a wave of concerts that were scheduled for all March and April are canceled, a hard blow for the musicians and artists who live of the spiritual and monetary way from this events.
Now, I personally proposed that some concerts, specifically of experimental music and technology, since it is the circle that I know, be remotely replanted, that is, that the cost of the ticket is voluntary cooperation, but that these are not entirely lost small fees for the artists and that a change of the live experience, the audience connects in an hour and can enjoy the concert, in short, no one seemed feasible, first because they would not know how to do it, second because it would be too much “weird” and NO ONE would want to pay for something like that, well, like that in Mexico.
But that left me reflecting very strongly, because perhaps if we could make a guide or even a tool that would facilitate people who are organizing things like being able to do this, many of them are not specialized in free software to do this. since definitively the world quarantine is imminent and it is not known how far it will stop.
I was also thinking of doing a kind of campaign with some illustrations (and memes, why not?) To normalize this practice and raise awareness of the support for artists and other academic activities that they can live from online and that could generate some income for participants.
