Double bassist Matt Heller recently wrote a blog post about a masterclass he observed through an Internet2 broadcast at a New World Symphony event. For those who don’t know, Internet2 is a very high-speed network linking academic institutions (the New World Symphony is classified as such), and it allows for high quality video applications.
Check out Matt’s post for a description of this technology in action. I have never had the opportunity to experiment with Internet2 before, but I hope to be able to do so sometime soon. Former pianist Joshua Nemith also did some work with Internet2 during his time in Miami.
