The Discord Choir
How to make some choir samples with friends when it’s lockdown and everyone must stay at home? Use Discord of course!
For the #PianobookWinterVoices project, I created (with a little help from my friends) five samples using Discord.
I wanted to put into practice what I had seen during the Olafur Arnalds concert at the Salle Pleyel in Paris last year. Before one of his song, Olafur asks the audience to sing one note, all together. He records this sound for about 20 seconds and uses it as a pad for his song. I tried to adapt this technique to a recording session via Discord with my friends.
It went a little more glitchy as I expected, but after a bit of editing, time-stretching and several EQs and reverbs, the result is quite nice!
A HUGE thank you to Alexandre, Céline, Julie, Léa, Louis, Ophélie, Susan and Zazou!

What a cool idea for a sampled instrument – very creative! Looking forward to using this one.
