Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir performs Lux Aurumque.
While Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque is not especially ‘electric’, it’s a fascinating and beautiful example of how composers can create work specific to new technologies.
In this case, Whitacre scored Lux Aurumque and asked singers on YouTube to sing the various parts, as he conducted the music via a YouTube video. The virtual choir was assembled from these performances and exists only in the computer.
