I know electrons travel at the speed of light and all that, but with all the processing going on, there must be some kind of delay involved.

So if for example, you were trying to run a concert with the various musicians in far-flung corners of the globe, and likewise, the audience - I can't really see this working successfully?

I know with shows like Children In Need they have these big choirs all round the country contributing to 'one big choir', but these are for 'fun' and small time lags wouldn't matter.

But a 'serious musical performance'? Even a delay of a few ms would mess up the ensemble playing. If you were a string player in a 'conventional concert' for example, you would hear your fellow stringists with a virtually nil delay, and you look at the conductor for an idea of tempo (to be able to fit in with other sections of the orchestra). Sound delays from other sections of the orchestra wouldn't matter.

But with a 'digitally-cohered' orchestra, how on earth would you manage the various (very small) delays not only from other orchestra sections, but from other players in your own section? Not to mention the delay on your visual feed of the conductor?

Every performance would have a small time-smear across the instruments!

Electrons do not travel at the speed of light in conductors.
