This is a fine example of technology’s power to introduce a whole new way to perform music. Anybody with a voice plus a computer or smartphone equipped with a camera can sing and be heard. The results of Eric Whitacre’s project to collect a mind blowing array of real faces and voices to assemble a virtual choirs of 8,409 videos from 5,905 singers is beyond spectacular. Without a doubt, we will be seeing, hearing, and perhaps PARTICIPATING in more performances like these. Sit back, turn up the volume, and immerse yourself in a choral experience unlike anything ever possible before the world turned virtual.
