What if DCI were judged like ice skating (another artistic sport).. the judges punch their numbers in and you get a score after each performance. I guess their technical scores are more codified.. but maybe a crazy idea. Ppl would lose their minds I think. I only say this as I have been schooled that the numbers go into the scoring system tabulated and that is it .. I’ve never got a clear answer on when the numbers get entered into the device just a curiosity .. but they would judge it as they see it and less relatively to each other. Then it truly is just the numbers .. simple math. I’ve thought about that, as a hedge to the subjectivity of it all, but also realize that the beauty of that system in ice skating or gymnastics is in the relative simplicity of measuring one athlete with a written set of expectations. While marching arts are actually more regimented (an athlete can choose to under or over rotate, whereas theoretically a performer can’t choose not to achieve set 52 or whatever), imagine the complexity of that show synopsis from each section. The screen would be filled with what coming up next, “left handed roll in snares”, “traveling five-tuplets in the bass line”, “sixteenth run in upper brass”, “cold attack on turn around in lower brass”, “rifle 7 with backhanded catch in Demi”, etc. etc. - and that’s would be for one 3 second moment, and would continue on and on for 11 minutes. would be amazingly hysterical to attempt! 🙂 or, we just need to re-standardize on what General Effect actually means. And no, I’m not sure that’s easier, but - we need those sheets to modernize as fast as the activity is. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
