I wanted to form a choir to sing on my upcoming album, but I didn’t know how. Then it occurred to me that I could just ask my fanbase if they wanted to sing. And it actually worked.
People signed up and I sent them the music and instructions. They recorded themselves in their own DIY vocal booths (clothes closets ) using their smartphones. Then they emailed me their recordings and I arranged them at my studio here in Nashvhille.
We had a total of 49 singers.
One 7-year old girl (for the win!)
Here’s a map of where everyone sang from. You can click on the map to have a more detailed look.
Here’s what it looked like once I combined their recordings together.
Pink – soprano
Purple – alto
Orange – harmony
Green – tenor
Blue – bass
* The different shades of each color represent voices similar in tone.
And here’s how they looked recording themselves in their DIY vocal booths (quite a good looking bunch, if I do say so myself).
Yes, I know you want to hear how it sounds, but I can’t share that QUITE yet. All I can say is that it’s sounding really cool, and you’ll be the first to know once it’s ready.
P.S. If you’re interested in singing in the next Digital Choir, just subscribe below in the footer and check the box next to “Digital Choir.” I’ll let you know when the next session starts.
