MAr 18th Eva Berlin Diary: How musicians deal with coronavirus in Berlin. Contrabass, violin concert at Werkhalle Wiesenburg

On Friday, March 20th, 2020 Coronavirus cases reached 17,500+ at 2:30 p.m. All the major music events and concerts are canceled due to Coronavirus. Yesterday I went to a private concert held in Werkhalle Wiesenburg . A Swedish artist Thomas Bo Henriksson manages this place: Werkhalle Wiesenburg Berlin. A New Yorker artist Gardener Buutz invited me here. Adam Goodwin, the #contrabass player, Chatschatur Kanajan, the Russian #violinist and @shastaelbow , the Canadian #violinist played a #improvisedmusic , and it was so inspiring. Meanwhile, the audience (or friends) drew lines and wrote with pastels on the paper. @ Arryn Snowball threw leaves on the floor. It was such a release . Happy Corona, one person wrote. This is how musicians and artists cope with #coronavirus in Berlin

코로나바이러스19로 베를린의 모든 음악회 콘서트가 취소 되었다. 어제 부츠의 초대로 스웨덴 화가인 토마스의 집에서 열린 미니콘서트에 갔다. 우리는 12명 정도 였고, 연주자들이 #콘트라베이스 #바이올린 을 연주하는 가운데 관객들은 앞에 나와 그림을 그리고, 연주자들은 그 그림을 악보 삼아 즉흥연주를 해나간다. 화가인 아린은 공연 중 낙엽을 뿌린다. 베를린의 음악가, 화가들이 이렇게 코로나19 에 대응하는 구나.

#creators gathered in #werkhallewiesenburg . It was different form of #concert . It was more like a #conversation of #music and #art . It was #improvisation and #experiment , and #everybody actively participated in it.

Thomas showed me his Japanese equation.
"They try to achieve perfection. But they failed. The cracks. It's the perfection achieved from the crack," Thomas said.
