SCIENTIFIC STUDY: conductors needed to listen online and rate 10 second samples for blend

Location: California, USA
Does acoustic voice matching really enable singers to use their natural technique while still blending with the group, or, are they actually subconsciously changing the way they sing?  Why does acoustic voice matching work?  

For my dissertation I am doing a scientific study on just that.  I've collected vocal data on singers as they participated in a live procedure.  Now, I need to link the data to how well the singers blended with each other.

For that I need YOUR help!  I need at least 39 more conductors to rate the blend of the samples using an online survey I've created.  Samples are 10 seconds long.  You can complete the survey anywhere, including on your smartphone!  Your help is greatly appreciated, and will serve to increase our collective understanding of the art we love.  I will also owe you your drink of choice next time we see each other :-)
Feel free to forward the link!

Thank you!
