  • 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:

    |                   .               |
    |                   .               |
    |      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.

    Who Should Bear the Risk in Infrastructure Projects?

    The answer to the question is the public sector, always. It’s okay to have private-sector involvement in construction, but the risk must be borne by the public sector, or else the private sector will just want more money to compensate for the extra risk. …

    Thoughts you mightn't have thunk about remote meetings

    Welcome to this week's edition of "building a startup in 2020," in which all your meetings are suddenly remote, and you probably weren't prepared for it. I know I wasn't. We started a "fully remote" company back in 2019, but …
