Virtual Choir

AN ASSEMBLY OF VOICES
Composer Eric Whitacre's Choral Network
Imagine asking a world wide audience to sing passages from your original music. Then imagine receiving thousands of performances via email. Imagine listening to each performance and, finally, whittling down this enormous field to over three thousand vocalists.
This is what composer Eric Whitacre asked, and below we learn more about the process and find ourselves enthralled by his virtual choir - singing the very beautiful composition, "Water Night".

Recycle

DID YOU KNOW...?
When a Coca-Cola bottle is recycled too many times, it deteriorates and is no longer useful as a container for the iconic soft drink. So, Nendo, a Japanese company known for transforming something old into something new and functional, has taken the Coca-Cola bottle and reshaped it into tableware.
From their website: "We were captivated by the particular green tint know as 'Georgia Green', and by the fine air bubbles and distortions that are a hallmark of recycled glass, so (we) decided to create simple shapes that would enhance these traits."
Nendo wanted consumers to see evidence of past use by allowing these hallmarks and other distinctions to remain as part of their new tableware - including the iconic brand name.
For more information about these delightful objects and other products, please visit the Nendo website.
