    且改變最大之經驗,

  • I was in the third year of my seven-year undergraduate degree.

    身旁充滿蟋蟀聲、鳥鳴、青蛙叫聲,

  • and as we sat there, over the mountains coming in

  • and as the clouds got about halfway over the valley,

    當烏雲蓋住一半的村莊時,

  • so help me God, every single animal in that place

    天啊,所有在場的動物,

  • stopped making noise at the same time.

    同時都不再發聲,正是鴉雀無聲。

  • (Whoosh) This electric hush, as if they could sense what was about to happen.

    「咻~~」疾電般的寧靜,牠們似乎能感到有事情要發生了。

  • or in their living rooms at home.

    或在家的客廳裡。

  • Two years ago, on this very stage, we premiered

  • Virtual Choir 2,

    「虛擬合唱 2」。

  • (Music)

    (音樂)

  • And when I was speaking to Chris about the future

    當我和克力斯討論 「虛擬合唱團」的未來,

  • of Virtual Choir and where we might be able to take this,

    而我們將可到達什麼境界的時候,

  • he challenged me to push the technology as far as we possibly could.

    他提出我們要把科技盡可能運用到極致。

  • Could we do this all in real time?

    我們可以做到即時嗎?

  • Could we have people singing together in real time?

    我們可以使歌手即時地一起唱歌嗎?

  • And with the help of Skype,

    而運用了Skype,

  • that is what we are going to attempt today.

    這就是我們今天要做的事。

  • Now, we'll perform "Cloudburst" for you.

    現在為你們演唱「暴雨」,

  • The first half will be performed by the live singers here on stage.

    上半場將由台上的歌手現場演唱,

  • I'm joined by singers from Cal State Long Beach,

    歌手們來自加州大學長灘分校、

  • Cal State Fullerton and Riverside Community College,

    加州大學富爾頓分校、河濱社區學院,

  • some of the best amateur choirs in the country, and

    他們是全國最優秀的業餘合唱團之一,

  • (Applause) --

    (掌聲)

  • and in the second half of the piece,

    在下半首作品中,

  • the virtual choir will join us, 30 different singers

    虛擬合唱團會加入我們,有 30 位歌手

  • from 30 different countries.

    他們來自 30 個國家。

  • Now, we've pushed the technology as far as it can go,

    現在,我們已將科技運用到極致,

  • but there's still less than a second of latency,

    但是仍有不到一秒鐘的延遲,

  • but in musical terms, that's a lifetime.

    以音樂術語來說,這是一輩子那麼長,

  • We deal in milliseconds.

    我們通常處理毫秒。

  • So what I've done is, I've adapted "Cloudburst"

    所以我可以做到的是,把「暴雨」改編,

  • so that it embraces the latency

    那麼我們便運用了延遲,

  • and the performers sing into the latency

    表演者的歌聲有所延遲,

  • instead of trying to be exactly together.

    而不是把聲音湊在一起。

  • So with deep humility, and for your approval,

    我們用最謙卑的心情,請你們見證 -

  • we present "Cloudburst."

    我們的演出「暴雨」。
