A Duet Technology Made Possible

Louise Astorino

Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury are two men that died too early.


Even though neither of them are alive today, we are able to hear them sing a duet together, which is something that would not have been possible without the help of technology.  I stumbled across this post on Gizmodo that explained the findings of this audio-gem, and why it is so special to finally hear this duet (you can read the original article that I found here).

The article on Gizmodo explains that Freddie Mercury first recorded “There Must Be More to Life Than This” in 1981, which had some additional vocals from Michael Jackson.  However, when the song was released, it did not have Michael Jackson’s vocals in that version.  Now,  we can hear the two voices together in a remixed track.

Technology is pretty cool in the sense that we can take two artists who are both no longer living, and mash their voices together to make a duet that has never been heard before.
