'Lux Aurumque'

I've spoken before about how the internet is an ultimate forum. No names, no questions asked, you count as much as anyone else and no judgments are made till they see what you can do.

This guy, took it in a direction I wouldn't have thought of.

Presenting:

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir, performing: "Lux Aurumque"

I've never heard of him before now, but he's done something amazing here. I don't know if he did it all himself or had a tech team, but he does great work.

Something like this has been done with Audio Dramas. You don't need your actors in the same room like the old recording studios that brought you Radio Theater back in the 40's and 50's.

I've heard it done with audio dramas, but never with video. It's an amazing time to be a geek.

What's truly amazing is not the sound, or the method, but the fact that these people would never have met each other, and probably wouldn't notice or care if they passed each other in the street now.
