Why GE1 and GE2???????

Recommended Posts

Why does DCI continue to not post its judging criteria and sheets on its website? Every other competitive "league" of note does so.

Here we go again, so I took this from the DCI site. Just to clarify!

Responsibilities: One of the GE judges has a music background and the other has a visual background, but each utilizes the same judging sheet because they are effectively judging the entire show, not just the effect of the music offering or the effect of the visual production. GE judges must be the most experienced, most knowledgeable, and most flexible members of the audience. Plus, they know how to manage numbers in order to give a proper score. The GE judges are doing the romantic job, they’re feeling what the show is offering and responding to what the show is. There are three parts to GE, the intellectual, the aesthetic, and the emotional.

And here I was thinking it was Brass, Percussion, and M&M...:peek:

because Ge 3 and Ge4 only come out for regionals and finals week

At which point the captions have at times been unclear about who is who.

You either separate the GEs or have a whole picture, or make a 3rd GE without compromising the overall percentage of GE on the score sheet

Who exactly is "suffering" from the captions being named GE1 And GE2?

It matters to me to know whether the judge is a Visual or Music expert.  I know they judge the same thing.... I know I'm not supposed to care, but I do....

A simple Google search of the name of the judge will probably give you what you're looking for (their background)

You are right. A little dramatic.

It's all pseudo-intellectual smoke and mirrors these days. "the aesthetic"? "the intellectual"?, "the emotional'? All according to whom? Still very subjective. Most adjudicators just learn the required "buzz-words" and use numbers management to justify their rankings. (multi-usage of planes, tension & release, etc., etc.)
