Virtual Music Making

Technology is allows for some amazing things we only dreamed about fifty years ago – seeing each other while talking on the phone (Skype), computers in homes to provide information, talking on small hand-held devices (cell phones)… Advances have been made in many areas.One of my music therapy friends, Kat Fulton, even Skype’s drum circles.

Yesterday evening, one of my favorite contemporary compositions was released on YouTube with over 2,000 voices in this web created chorus.  If you haven’t heard the stories about the creation of the video, I encourage you to visit Eric Whitacre’s Website. There are maps to show locations of the singers, stories from the participants, and other bits of information.  Most important is the video itself. Please take a moment to enjoy this wonderful music.

I wonder what other musical joys await us in the future?
