I wanted to see if I could use voices from around the world to sing on one of my songs for an upcoming release. So, I started the AE Digital Choir.
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. Funny enough, it worked really well.
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 want to join the AE Digital Choir, you can sign up here and I’ll let you know when we’re doing another session. We’d love to have you you! If you just want to stay posted on the choir and other Aaron Espe Music stuff, join the AELY Club here!
