In Autumn 2022 I finally plucked up the courage to join a choir, at the slightly late age of fifty-eight, and having not read music since around 1978. As if that weren’t enough stress, I also happen to live in Wales, famous for the quality of its choirs. Having initially found it all a bit of a challenge, I’m now documenting some of the things I’ve found out in the last seven months.
My daily work involves a lot of technology, so I wondered if technology could help me with what is essentially a very human, and decidedly non-technical pursuit. And of course it can. This site, then, documents what I’ve found out about choral singing and technology in the short journey to March 2023 and beyond.
