To close TED’s Conference in Los Angeles, we developed a one-of-a-kind live collaboration with Grammy award-winning composer Eric Whitacre. The goal was to bring his work “Cloudburst” to life uniquely, in a way that would do justice to the TED stage.
Whitacre was known for creating a “virtual choir” featuring singers from many countries spliced together into a single video. We sought to connect a virtual choir of singers together live, in real-time, for the first time ever.
The world’s first live virtual choir combined a 100 person on-site choir with singers connected live from 30 countries around the globe.
The live choir was made possible by custom application of Skype TX technology, seamlessly bringing each singer into the TED hall.
