Virtual music

Have you ever seen a YouTube video with one person singing many harmonies? Or collaborative videos where the singers aren't actually in the same place when they're recording? From solo multitrackers like Peter Hollens to massive "virtual" choirs like Eric Whitacre's, these types of projects have earned a special distinction on the Internet.

Accent is an international virtual a cappella sextet that specializes in close harmony jazz singing, and they will be meeting in person for the very first time at this festival. Individual members of the group were among some of the first multitrackers on YouTube. Viewers all over the world often ask them how to get involved in musical projects online and how they construct their recordings.

In this workshop, the members ofAccent will take you through the process. You will learn about recording methods, audio and video equipment, editing and mixing techniques, and polishing the final product. They will also discuss how they approach arranging and managing projects for this group and how it differs from other live acts. You will also have a chance to ask questions about how to make your own recordings and videos! 

Please note: The seminar will be held in English.
