It is certainly encouraging to see leading artists in the electronic music world take on the COVID-19 epidemic in creative and meaningful ways, and this new project called ‘Lockdown Music’ from Belgium’s Henri PFR is a welcomed campaign during these extreme times of people being quarantined and confined to their homes.
‘Lockdown music’ is Henri’s global invitation to create new music, and just do something positive. He has set a deadline one week from now, on 31 March, for musicians to send in a video of them playing any instrument, or any tool or object that can be made musical, “it could be a kick with your fist knocking at the door, it could be a simple snap or clap and also you can use some toilet paper or simple glass… everything creative”.
Henri PFR is a Belgian musician and composer, and of course a DJ, having studied musical theory in his pre-teen years and eventually grew as a musician into the electronic diaspora by the age of 14. His first mixtape for a YouTube channel ‘La Belle Musique’ caught the attention of Armin van Buuren’s imprint, Armada Music, who also took on his first two singles including the hit ‘Tarida’.
