What is Partner Choir Mixing?

Mix your performance with another choir’s performance to form a greater choral reef, with a brilliant message. You can choose your Partner Choir or have one with a similar (or contrasting!) message chosen for you. Mixing is created through the addition of tracks on a DAW (digital audio workstation).*
 
*Certain parameters are determined by the composer to allow for “Choral Reef” effects in the Individual performances as well as the Partner Mix performances
