by Voices Unbound Virtual Choir
Ximena Abarca and Voices Unbound invite you to join them in forming a massed virtual choir and sing Ximena Abarca's original song "Vital".
To be part of this, you will need to record a video of yourself singing one of the song's harmonies and send it to us.
Below you will find videos of all the parts to use as guides. Just choose a harmony, record yourself and send it to us by clicking the submit button below.
If you have any questions or issues, email email@example.com
Thank you for being part of this beautiful adaptation.
- You will need:
(1) one device with headphones to listen to the guide track, and
(2) another device with a camera and microphone to record your part (e.g. your phone).
- Set up your recording device so that it’s still and ensure you are in a quiet space without background noise. Be mindful of the background and make sure you have good light (we want to see you).
- Pick your preferred harmony (see below) and use the videos as a guide for your recording (audio files available to download)
- Start recording before you play the track. Record the count-in ("one, two, three, four") when it's displayed onscreen. Video the whole song through, from start to finish, even if you are not singing through.
- It might take a couple of attempts before you get it right. Make sure you enjoy the process and remember you will be part of a massed virtual choir and we all help iron out each other's little imperfections just like a real choir does.
- When you are happy with your recording, click the "submit a video" button above. (Please send only one file for each part, although you are welcome to record more than one harmony and send us one recording of each).
