Deke Sharon, Pitch Perfect, and Finale

Deke Video

Finale watchers alerted me to this video interview with Deke Sharon, the “musical force behind NBC’s ‘The Sing Off’ and both ‘Pitch Perfect’ films.” Among the highlights is a cleverly-edited sequence where he sings each part of an a cappella arrangement (seen in Finale 2014), and both the audio and the video have been multi-tracked.

Stick around for the end where Deke’s answer to a question – about how the a cappella landscape has changed in recent years – turns into an well-spoken plea that we all get off the sofa and sing with each other.
