A new era of creativity: Watch Eva Lazarus and Swindle collaborate over 5G

Ericsson's 5G network means artists can now collaborate in real time, from anywhere

Long gone are the days of artists having to be in the same room together to collaborate. The digital age has seen a global explosion of joint creativity, from grime producers in Bristol working with MCs in Tokyo to house and techno team-ups from Berlin to Baltimore. Now things have stepped up a level, with Ericsson's 5G network, “bringing better coverage, reliability and minimal delay”, as Ericsson proudly outlines, harnessing a thrilling and game-changing new era of creativity.

While the start of 2020 was all about being connected, now we're starting to look forward at how to rebuild and recover. The music industry - like many other parts of society - has been hit hard this year. Tech - and 5G - may be able to help our industry recuperate and rejuvenate.

To show the power of Ericsson's new network, Brownswood Recordings producer and jazz-funk bass specialist Swindle and vocalist Eva Lazarus teamed up in real time via Ericsson 5G. Each artist set up in a different London location: Swindle aboard the top deck of River Thames venue The Yacht with a Nord Stage II keyboard and laptop, Eva with a microphone in the historic setting of the Drawing Room of members club The House of St Barnabas.

Powered by a seamless 5G connection, interacting visually via Instagram Live and with a bespoke audio interface ensuring crisp sound delivery, the pair brought the IRL and human element to a digital collaboration, combining Swindle’s handiwork on keys and Eva’s trademark soulful vocals to create a brand new track, ‘Good Today’.

Collaborating in real time, from anywhere, just got easier. Ericsson’s 5G isn’t just the next big thing in connectivity; it could just be the next big thing in music production too.
