VIDEO: TED Talk – Eric Whitacre’s Virtual 2,000 Voice Chior

by Winston "Stone" Ford

I’m a huge fan of TED and their online TED Talks. The Couch Sessions has also promoted several TEDx events, including TEDxPennQuarter and TEDxBrooklyn, so you know we’re always down for the cause. If you don’t know, the TED (short for Technology Entertainment and Design) promote new ways to tackle old ideas and the spread of innovation to inspire new ones. I know this might not be your cup of tea, but I recently stumbled upon conductor Eric Whitacre’s Virtual chior.

Whitacre recited over 2000 voices from all over 40 countries to sing his version of “Sleep.” No explanation needed. Just check the video.

    I have never heard of TED, or Eric Whitacre before, but I will be checking them out regularly now. This is amazing on so many levels. Thanks for putting this out there!

    I stumbled on this by accident and I’m so moved that I wanted to share it with my 3 children, all of whom have sung in choirs! It is simply fantastic!!!
