Many months ago we were all enjoying concerts, crowded shoulder to shoulder, basking in our favourite songs being sung live. But suddenly, a mandatory pivot to digital was expected of musicians everywhere. What happens when a musician is put on the spot, expected to share a pre-recorded performance as part of an interview, or festival after the fact? As art has carried us through the pandemic, the presenter’s and public’s relationship with performances has considerably changed due to going virtual, but your rights haven’t. In this panel discussion co-presented by the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, we’ll be joined by two time juno-nominated bassist, composer, and educator Jodi Proznick alongside Tim Reinert, Vancouver-based writer and broadcaster, and Matthew Lien, songwriter, composer, producer, and performer to discuss the musician’s pivot to digital.
