Sick Studio – Anna Roberts-Gevalt

Anna Roberts-Gevalt was a recipient of a OneBeat Accelerator for her project Sick Studio. Sick Studio is a collaborative project between Anna, a chronically ill musician, and Sarah Galdes, an able-bodied producer. The project asks, what if recording studios had been invented by sick people?

The two artists are building together a recording process that embraces and centers a sick state of being and perspective : a shared set of accessibility tools, accommodations, disability-centered working language, and processes that bridge the gaps of Anna’s specific impairments. The fruits of their experimentation will be a short EP, a how-to-zine [online & physical]— a guidebook for chronically ill recording, and writing documenting their process.
