Many people around the world are now isolated at home either due to strict rules put in place by their governments or out of choice to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Without waffling on about this (I’m sure everyone is aware of the situation and how it’s affecting so many of us) it’s great to see so many taking to live streams as a way of coming together and keeping in touch. Either streaming live performances, gear demos, presentations, hangouts, talks or any video/audio combo it’s fantastic and I think really important for us all to stay connected.
So here’s a list of live streams coming up during this period of isolation from the wider group of family & friends (I say family & friends as really the audio world of musicians, designers, engineers, code wizards, content creators etc is a wide spread loving community we should all cherish) with some of my own streams to be added soon. Where you can please share these, join the live chats and keep the community going strong for the benefit of everyone.
