  • Sound Reflection: CDNY

    May 15th, 2012
    contra, sound
    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.

    My Rainbow Kit

    For Christmas I got a really fun kit about rainbows. It had a rainbow catcher, a really cool necklace, a streamer thingy, and it also had a really really cool pinwheel, and it also had a bracelet and a pinata. Unfortunately the pinata didn't work out …

    Phones

    I think that once a kid is in third grade they should be able to get a phone. I think that while sometimes parents might want kids not to have them at certain ages, phones can be quite useful at times. Tablets don't have GPS, they don't have WiFi…
