Info/Locations: Remote sync playback of high school choir during pandemic. 51 TVs and 51 speakers, all in sync.
Composed by Lynn Dowding
Concepted at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic when we realized that Dan's mom's High School Choir couldn't sing their final concert together. Finished with about 1 day to go, we were able to have all the kids from the Chariho High School Choir record their parts(based on a master track) Then perfectly sync their playback using 51 raspberry pis. This is the first time we used all the TV speakers as well as the TV screens. A rats nest of cables(2 to each of the 51 TVs), we were able to re-create the sound of a choir in the room. As far as we know this may be the most individual TV speakers and screens to play at the same time.
