  1. Oh sorry... What I actually mean is that everyone hates marching cymbals and wants to melt them all down in a giant ceremonial fire.
  2. What I believe Jeff is trying to get across is that there is a difference in sound and the effects possible with marching cymbals rather than cymbals in the pit. Marching cymbals are much more than the occasional crash, and offer a distinct challenge and color to the percussion section.
  3. I am curious to hear from you all about this. Do you care about the cohesiveness of a show concept? There is a lot of praise for BD's design, but I have a hard time buying in. To me, it seems like they are going for a collection of moments, and fitting those moments to their show theme. This is in contrast to a show like Session 44 which feels almost all driven by the show concept. The execution and performance of both of these shows is fantastic, but I find the transitions in BD's show really jarring, and the moments to be only loosely related to their overall theme.
  4. I think that is a good way to show people why things have changed. I think the beauty of this activity is that it has consistently progressed and changed. We have past shows that you can look back on if you desire that style. But do we really think there is something left to be done within that style?
  5. I'm surprised no one has mentioned E=mc2 yet. That and this years bluecoats are the two shows that seem to have the most seamless integration. The vocals in those shows play an integral part of the style, where as most others could have easily been a henline moment.
