Virtual Choir

I know this isn’t related to class, but this video is so amazing that I need to share it with as many people as possible. If you’ve heard the name Eric Whitacre, you may have heard of his virtual choir project; basically, people upload videos of themselves singing to YouTube, and those videos get edited together to form a huge virtual choir, with all parts being sung by people from around the world. This video had 2052 singers from 58 different countries performing Eric Whitacre’s Sleep, one of my favorite choir pieces ever written. I love how wonderfully this video shows off the power of the internet.

So, I know it’s not game related, but if TED asked Whitacre to do a TEDTalk on this project, I think it’s worth a watch.

Here’s the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WhWDCw3Mng
