Music for Self-Isolation began as a project for musicians to support each other and their fans through the beginning of the pandemic. It has evolved, over a year, into a worldwide collaboration to share music and musicians’ stories to a wider audience.
Created by filmmaker, Adam Crosby, and composer, Frank Horvat, this documentary is a thought-provoking and reflective look into the lives, hopes, and fears of musicians who are driven to keep creating through a global pandemic.
The majority of the film was shot at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto from January 11-13, 2021 during the recording of the Music for Self-Isolation album. Other interviews were shot in isolation from the interviewees’ personal spaces.
This film captures the album recording process and chronicles musicians’ stories from the pandemic, distilled from 48 performer interviews.
Gramophone magazine calls it, "a thought-provoking and moving documentary."
