Music collaboration from the ISS

The Barenaked Ladies, a children’s choir, and Chris Hadfield, commander of the International Space Station. Put them together and what do you get? The first space-to-earth musical collaboration. The song, “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing) was commissioned by CBCMusic.ca and The Coalition for Music Education with the Canadian Space Agency to celebrate music education in schools across Canada.

This is brilliant. Zoom it out. Turn it up.

Consider how far technology has come that we can have this kind of collaboration in real time with no delay from space. I know groups in the same room that don’t have this kind of timing.
