Chorus online by Matthew Herbert

Explore Chorus online

Prolific and accomplished British electronic musician Matthew Herbert is renowned for manipulating everyday sounds and bodily experiences to produce electronic music. Chorus asks visitors to sing a single note within a professional recording booth following a set of instructions. The visitors’ voices are then automatically added to a chorus of voices, including performers and staff from the Royal Opera House, forming an ever-expanding sound installation that plays in the exhibition space and at the Royal Opera House’s Stage Door in Covent Garden.

Explore Chorus online using the interactive tools to adjust the voices and add your own.
