Music in times of the COVID-19 pandemic

An invitation to form a network of research projects.

Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics invites researchers from all backgrounds to join forces in order to document, investigate, and understand the multitude of ways in which music is used and experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, as an effort to explain how and under which circumstances musicking practices can provide an opportunity for individuals to cope with a threatening situation such as the present one. The knowledge might help societies to be better prepared should a similar situation occur in the future. More broadly, research outcomes from this work may have long-term implications for developing clinical and therapeutic interventions and best practices tackling loneliness and social isolation in health, wellbeing, and aerospace psychology.
