Janet Cardiff worked with the Salisbury Cathedral Choir to record 40 individual singers, playing each voice through its own corresponding speaker. The speakers are carefully positioned in eight different groups of five, responding to the structure of Tallis’s complex vocal piece, or motet. Each group forms a choir of five singers with different vocal ranges: a bass, baritone, tenor, alto and soprano. The eight choirs produce harmonies which blend into a polyphonic landscape of sound. Visitors are encouraged to walk among the speakers to hear the individual voices, as well as the immersive sound of the motet. Cardiff said: ‘I am interested in how sound may physically construct a space in a sculptural way and how a viewer may choose a path through this physical yet virtual space.’

Once we know the importance of having a website and thus we need one, then it is time for us to decide and choose who will be the one who will build it. If we are knowledgeable and technically equipped on how to do it, then we can develop our own website. However, in some cases a professional website is not the only answer to our marketing needs. Most small companies today would like to outsource the job in order to save time and effort.
