Last, but not least! (Yes, this is a blog, so the « last in » is on top of the pile, FIFO stye lol- rings a bell from old accounting courses!)

Most TEDxBrussels 2012 sessions started with a performance from Scala. Absolutely sublime and a great way to get us focused and it the perfect mood for the talks… Some videos below, but do visit their website.

Sublime song from Scala & Kolacny Brother
Listening to it still gives me butterflies… Play the song while reading the rest!



 
Scala is an all-female choir from the Flemish town of Aarschot in Belgium.
They hit the headlines in 2010 when, with the Kolacny brothers, they featured on the trailer to The Social Network, the massively successful hollywood movie all about Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.

 
For the film they sang a version of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ that resonated around the world as the wired generation discovered the personality behind Facebook and its billions of users.

Long before that however, Scala were enjoying local success winning the award for Belgian Choir of the Year in 2000, releasing their first album, Scala on the Rocks in 2002. The formula of rendering current rock classics in pure choral tones has proved incredibly popular, Scala performs all over the world continually adding to its hard rock repertoire.
