‘Zoom Meeting’ is a virtual concert commissioned by Gaudeamus. A Covid-19 induced conceptual fever dream and a journey into the minds and bodies of three musicians losing sense of reality while being stuck at home with nothing to do.
After seeing their concert for Gaudeamus in KuuB getting cancelled twice, percussion trio XTRO reconvenes on Zoom to air their grievances. Then they find out they’ve each been having some strange experiences, in which their surroundings come to life and music seems to grow all around them. The Zoom meeting guides the viewer through the performers’ individual hallucinations, culminating in one huge trip shared by all three of them at the same time.
