Orchestras by their very nature see large groups of people playing instruments all in close proximity, something which obviously can’t happen with COVID-19.

Mustafa Khetty has now offered a solution to classical musicians who are out of work, appealing especially to musicians in those areas most affected, including Italy and Iran. With many people now owning recording software at home, Mustafa is creating his classical works whilst avoiding the need for direct human contact and allowing musicians to record their individual parts in the comfort of their own home.

Mustafa is reaching out to classical musicians
wherever they are located in isolation, giving them the separated audio tracks
along with the written music for each instrument and asking them to record
their part for the track, before he then puts them all together in production,
forming the sound of a full orchestra. Mustafa is now also requesting that
classical musicians who are out of work contact him if they would like to get
involved with the project:

Mustafa explains:

“Solace for
Humanity is an experiment to invite instrumentalists and vocalists to re-record
parts as well as play individual parts with improvisations from their home
studios. Ideas would be incorporated into a longer overture. It’s about
exchange, collaboration, co-creation and sharing. Lockdown isn’t lockout, our
lives are in our heads, we live in thought. Creativity, idea generation,
imagination is the hallmark of our being. The coronavirus has made us truly
digital natives cruising in uncharted terrain, realigning our work and

Solace is a musical journey
following the rapid devastation caused by a single virus that has crippled the
world with over 3 billion in lock-down and the affected gasping for breath. The
first part depicts the dark and sombre warning of impending doom. The middle
section, the tragedy of sickness, despair, helplessness, ravage, death and
solitary burial. The finale is the floating glimmer of hope countered by
distress, uncertainty, sadness and lament. The faint hope of recovery can so
easily be shattered.
