Network Music Performance (NMP) systems provide a solution to remote musical performance over Wide Area Networks (WANs). Empirical NMP research is conducted largely on emulated or academic networks which differ significantly from typical internet connections. This paper presents the technical implementation of an NMP deployment to assess the capabilities of typical modern home internet connections for supporting NMP systems for Immersive Vocal Performance. Audio is streamed between performer home computers using Jacktrip and rendered locally to provide Binaural (virtual Ambisonics approach) playback. Preliminary testing is discussed.
