Today while I was running around trying to find things to put into a Welcome to Mason City basket I had to visit my local candle guru, Camille, at Soyphisticated Candles. Now you know I have blogged about her and her fabulous candles before and it is worth a trip to her store if you live here or a gander at her website if you don’t! Awesome products and nice person to boot!!! Can’t get much better than that. Anyway, while I was rambling on and on about what I was doing somehow she told me about this fabulous virtual choir that she was a part of. She was kind enough to email me the link (thanks!!!) and I was so impressed at this awesome thing that was created!!!
A few facts –Camille is obviously a very talented singer and to be a part of this fabulous thing is mind boggling to me!!! Eric Whitacre is the composer and through his efforts 2052 voices from 58 countries were combined to perform his piece “Sleep”. It is fabulous. It is evenly balanced and simply beautiful. It is amazing what can be done with technology. Each singer submitted their video with them performing to the virtual direction of Mr. Whitacre and then the videos were all uploaded, assembled, compiled, whatever to create a masterpiece. Even if you are not a singer or a huge music fan I think you will be amazed at this fabulous work.
I also will include a link where Mr. Whitacre himself addresses the performance and all that went into it. Enjoy!!!
