Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir 4 has recently been released.

What is Virtual Choir?

Imagine a choir with over 5000 people performing...except they are not all in the same place. People from all over the world submit videos of their performance of the music. The videos and the audio are all combined into one video performance.

This is the result:

That's a pretty awesome concept (I can't watch the video at work).

How is this substantively different than the multitracking that Les Paul popularized in the 50's?

shrug...

I don't know. Did Les Paul multitrack over 8,000 performances from almost 6,000 performers...from 101 countries? Did he debut this performance before the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace?

Oh...I should also ask...did Les Paul write the music and lyrics of the song being performed for an opera? The song is the finale for ""Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings".
