In the pandemic era, musicians are looking for ways to perform live while being remote.

The internet has latency and anything over 40 milliseconds causes difficulties.

Internet 2, a network that connects universities and organizations, can transmit huge quantities of data. In 2014 the Chiara String Quartet, at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, performed Mendelsohn’s Octet with the Avalon Quarter, 450 miles away at Northern Illinois University. The latency was 19 milliseconds. “

As long as you’re inside a 750-800 mile range, you get the sort of delay that happens inside a room, inside a performance hall said Howard Herring, president and CEO of the New World Symphony, the Miami-based training academy that uses Internet2 for remote coaching sessions and link-ups with composers.
