So the only show you connected with was about being stranded, lost and needing help?

I didn't realize she was Norwegian.

Bluecoats - going on after SCV and BD was certainly going to be a challenge, but they rose to the occasion and blew us away. Definitely not a dull moment in this show. Vocalist wasn't as loud as I was

The nesting platform idea is such a genius design element. So simple, yet so much you can do with it.  Just wish it had a little more color.

Crown!!! WHY ARE YOU AMPING YOUR BRASS????

posted from the DrumScorps app

Crown does not amp their brass. Those are likely recording mics for Flo/DCI to broadcast. There is a difference between a recording Mic and a projection Mic. Also, some microphones are placed in front for solos and can be turned off and on when needed. Stop throwing out accusations until you know the facts or do some research on these things. Your comments all night have been way off base and negative. 

The broadcast mics for Flo don’t disappear between corps or move (the ones I saw for Crown certainly are absent for SCV). If they were mics for soloists, they wouldn’t be taller than the MMs by a head or more.

Crown seems to have used them for highlighting small ensemble work. There were times when sections, particularly high brass, were staged in front of the mics. I don’t know what it’s like live, but over the broadcast you can hear the time delay between the speakers and acoustic brass sound.

Ugh, Flo mic'd the wrong speakers, so I'm not hearing the soloists at all! :(

Shockingly predictable.

The thing is, on a performance level, I can tell it’s a stellar year. Talent is soaring through the activity. It’s design that turns me off. Amplification of brass, unattractive costumes, sound bytes and prerecorded effects, singing (even though the singers themselves are excellent to exceptional).

 

All of these elements are usually so jarring that I’m no longer immersed in the experience.

Times change, as they should. Things progress, as they should. Not everything can stay the same forever just because you liked it better a certain way. This activity is first and foremost about the kids marching. If they like what they're doing I am happy for them. I honestly love what I'm seeing today. You might try re-educating yourself about what's taking place on the field. I'm not saying you have to like everything, but living in the past is dangerous and will not help you enjoy today's shows.
