Phong Bui, the Brooklyn Rail staff, and my peers have been running a daily New Social Environment for the past several weeks. These are Zoom-based lunchtime gatherings that have a host and a guest talking about art, writing, what the fuck is going on, everything. They are free to join for each and all, and at the end there’s a Q&A session involving the audience.
April 9 I hosted a session, talking with flutist Adam Walker about his experience of playing a live concert in a room closed off from the audience, and also what it’s like for him as a performer when there’s no chance of playing with anyone. Check it out below, and keep track of what’s going on at the Rail.
