In the New Jersey Gay Men’s Chorus, audio transmission delays caused us to struggle with rehearsing over Zoom. Low-latency technology, on the other hand, reduced audio delays enough for members of our chorus to sing to and listen to each other at the same time. At the end of 2020, chorus members started using Soundjack to transmit super low-latency audio. In the spring of 2021, we started using LiveLab to transmit low-latency video as well.
On Friday, 2021 November 12, Harvey Mudd College’s Office of Alumni and Parent Relations hosted Mudd Talks: “Making Music Using Low-Latency Technology in the New Jersey Gay Men’s Chorus.” Sarah Michal (Artistic Director) and David Liao (Bass Section Member & Low-Latency Project Chief) gave a presentation including live demonstrations of singing using Soundjack and LiveLab.
