    Where is Crown warming up today, and when. Does anyone know?? (Also fun fact BAC is in the same hotel I am).

    Visual proficiency is more of the cleanliness side of the visual section. Analysis is likely more how well it works in context, which really falls mostly on the designers, as opposed to the performers. Although a bad or good performance will still make an impact.

    Yeah I think a lot of people got that sort of vibe. The argument for whether it's just not flushed out yet or that it is a fatal flaw is still going on. Also really, most shows don't have drill that has to necessarily match the theme, sometimes more of filler or a transition to get to the stuff that DOES match the theme. I like the drill personally, but maybe that because it's easier to read when the props aren't moving around so much (lookin at you SCV and Bloo).

    There's a great jazz song called True North by Mike Dana. There's a lot of good jazz in the ECM style (although this is coming from me, a jazz guy). Also, I agree 100% percent with that low brass statement. They add girth to the sound in a way trumpets and mellos cannot. In my experience, moving down a mouthpiece size is much easier than going up, so it can't have been too difficult for technique, but the tone is a whole different thing.

    Where can I find that video?

    Or, they can keep the same song (which fits the closer so well) and just add a couple of those crunchy "beast-chords" or something like that. Just to give the same feel as the rest of the show. Then it doesn't feel so tacked on, there's could be more technicality in the line, AND it still matches the overarching theme that Crown is going for.

    Babylon

    What happened in 2012 that you didn't like?? I mean, it's BD. They haven't placed lower than 5th since 1974...

    Idk if y'all saw, but someone started a thread asking if Babylon would become a legendary show. The thread is called Babylon (wow, that's crazy), you guys should go check it out.

    Babylon

    Coming from a BD fan y'all are killin' it in visual this year, as per usual (even with losing in guard to BAC at the Alamodome).

    Babylon

    Here's a big question: do you mean legendary in the context of highly-loved, or game-changing? Personally it seems like we have one TRULY game-changing show once every 13 years or so, starting with SCV '89, then Cavies '02, then Bloo '16. These shows really changed the course of the sport. (Also not to dis Star '93, that would definitely be an honorable mention on this list) Then there's highly-loved, like E=mc^2 or Spartacus. Fantastic show, but it didn't really change DCI forever. This is where I think Babylon will fall.

    They were 3rd in percussion, behind BD, but only by an inch! Definitely the catchiest perc. book I've heard in a long time.

    Lots of traditions in DCI are changing nowadays. For better or for worse

    If y'all haven't seen SCV's show this year, I STRONGLY suggest you check it out (if you want a link from the 14th, I have one). Anyways, I'm glad to see Crown in the 90's, and within a point of being runner up. They showed that they are still the alpha-beast (pun intended) in brass, and a competitor in percussion. Although, percussion will be a much tougher fight against SCV, who's percussion has a similar legacy to Crown's brass.

    Anyone know where I can find a video of SCV's show recently? I saw some from the early season but I guess they were taken down, and I haven't been able to find any for weeks. I've been itching to see their show now that it's cleaner (and hopefully a better video quality too). Btw I'm rooting for y'all to take it home, anything but BD again

    As of right now, Crown and SCV have tied for the highest brass score at 17.90. Bloo was also at 17.90 at St. Louis, but dropped back down to 17.70 over the next 2 days. Crown has a difficult book this year, I doubt that's the issue as of right now. I think the focus on adding new aspects and cleaning throughout the past couple weeks has distracted Crown from working intensively on their brass. There's a good chance that soon the line will shape up into something big.
