Can musicians successfully work in the Keret House, dubbed the world’s slimmest house?
We organized the Audioresidencies to find out. We invited three musicians form Warsaw to take part in the project, together with three musicians invited from abroad.
Three duets in the framework of the project were formed, each of which for a couple of days worked, played and recorded in the demanding space of the Keret House. (Marcin Masecki even managed to put a piano in the Keret House.)
