ERIC WHITACRE'S VIRTUAL CHOIR

An amazing story and a goosebump-inducing video.  Thanks to sis for bringing this to my attention.

Amazing and haunting music. I remember in California visiting the establishment of a man who owned a camera shop. He had a Hammond organ that was re-engineered to play voices instead of tones. If you pressed C, instead of a tone in C, you would hear a voice singing in C. There was a mixture of male and female voices, so by holding down different keys, you could create a various combination of harmonies.
