Hi song organizers,
I've been working on a program to let people sing together online, and
I'm hosting a demo to show how it works:
* Thursday 1/14
* 8:30pm ET
What you'll need:
* Computer (not a phone or tablet)
* Chrome or Firefox
* Ideally, wired headphones
The general idea is that people are in six buckets, with the song
leader in the first bucket. Everyone can hear all the people in the
buckets ahead of them (lower-numbered), and be heard by all the people
in the buckets after them (higher-numbered). This is a different
approach than realtime options: instead of minimizing latency, it
adapts to it. This means it does not require a wired internet
connection or any specialized audio hardware.
It also includes video and voice chat, for talking between songs.
Hi song organizers,
CDSS is hosting a web chat next that I thought you might be interested in.
Join us for our next Web Chat:
Singing and Playing Music in REAL TIME!
An online discussion for organizers of song communities and open bands
Wednesday, January 13, 2021, 7:00-8:30 p.m. ET
Join us for this conversation with a member of the Sacred Harp group FaSoLa
Philadelphia (PA) and a member of Phoenix (AZ) Traditional Music & Dance
Society. During this Web Chat, they’ll be sharing their successes with
using the computer program Jamulus to enable their groups to sing and play
music in real time! We know a return to in-person singing and jamming is on
the horizon, but it will still take some time before it’s safe to gather in
groups. Tune in to find out how these groups have tackled the challenge of
creating online real-time song and music sessions. We’ll make sure there’s
plenty of time for Q&A and breakout sessions, so come with your questions
Soon after you register, Zoom will send you a confirmation email with your
own personal link. You’ll need this info for joining the Web Chat! To keep
track of it, we recommend saving the email and/or creating a calendar event.
Please share this invite with members of community music and singing groups!
