Sometimes I feel like I live in the future...

...I guess I do. This is one of those things that reminds me I live in a very cool time. Where innovation can be found everywhere. Eric Whitacre, composer/conductor, has created a virtual choir. He videotaped himself conducting, then asked singers to record themselves singing their parts and send it on to him. Then, he merged their voices and videos electronically. The end result is this amazing recording- 185 singers and it sounds amazing. Incidentally, I sang many of Eric Whitacre's songs in High School, and especially love this one. Enjoy!~
