Quarantine Sessions

The Quarantine Sessions started as a reaction to the Covid lockdown on 2020-03-28 and have continued since then - every Saturday. Musicians and visual artists connect to a server at CCRMA in Stanford, California, using the Jacktrip software for a high quality audio connection. All participants join a Jitsi meeting, which is streamed in combination with the higher quality JackTrip audio.
