Abstract: This contribution consists of two files, an audio recording (TAWTUTB_GoldHimonidesPurves.mp3) and a video recording (TAWTUTB_AccompVideo_GoldHimondesPurves.mp4). The audio is a performance of Mercer Ellington's 1942 composition 'Things Ain't What They Used To Be' (Piano: Nicolas Gold; Guitar, Programming and Production: Evangelos Himonides; Saxophone: Ross Purves). This was recorded as musical collaboration that we undertook during lockdown conditions in the UK in 2020. This project started out as simply a fun experiment to see if we could produce a jazz or blues track while not being able to meet. However, it led to some interesting issues being revealed about the process of music making under those conditions. The accompanying video covers our experiences and reflections as musicians working with whatever technology was at hand as we produced this track in asynchronous fashion.
