Sound and music agency DLMDD today unveils a first of its kind music experiment inspiring prominent musicians and artists around the world to collaborate and compose their unique soundtrack to isolation.
The experiment was initiated during the COVID-19 lockdown by Max De Lucia, co-founder of DLMDD. It sees the creation of one continuous piece of music by a host of distinguished musicians and producers, each contributing 15 seconds of original music to the score each day.

“Amongst the chaos and uncertainty caused by Covid-19, people around the world are being brought together by the enormous power of music. This experiment is more than just a show of music’s ability to connect us during these times, it’s also a great display of the creativity that’s happening whilst we’re all locked away behind closed doors.
