In a moving and madly viral video last year, composer Eric Whitacre led a virtual choir of singers from around the world. Here is his new work, « Sleep, » a video choir of 2,052. Yes, this video features 2052 performances of ‘Sleep’ from 1752 singers in 58 countries, individually recorded and uploaded to YouTube between September 2010 and January 2011.
La performance est étonnante, la vidéo ridicule. Eric Whitacre a réussi l’exploit de réunir 1752 chanteurs qui ont enregistré 2052 vidéos individuelles, qui ont été uploadées sur YouTube pour créer la plus grande chorale virtuelle du monde.
