Sound Reflection: CDNY

May 15th, 2012
contra, sound  [html]
The Free Raisins recently played for CDNY. We had a really good time, and I think we played well, but I'm glad I don't have to run sound for that hall.

The hall is half of a gym, with some kind of hanging fabric barrier separating the dancers from the people using the other half. [1] Like most gyms, all the surfaces are highly reflective. There are six speakers in the front and back of the hall mounted near the ceiling with only a slight downward tilt. Like this:

+-----------------------------------+
|  s              s .            s  |
|  |              | .            |  |
|                   .               |
|                   .               |
|      dancers      .    sports     |
|                   .               |
|                   .               |
|  |              | .            |  |
|  s     band     s .            s  |
+-----------------------------------+

Not a sound system designed for contra dancing.


[1] We were lucky to have badmintoning neighbors; when Simmerville played Amy says they were competing with basketball.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf

I really like One Night Ultimate Werewolf (ONUW), and recommend trying it out. The Daybreak expansion is also good (but I’d skip the later games in the series). App For those who’ve played a lot and wish the night took 20 seconds rather than a few minutes…
