Sound Check Speaking of Ears
posted by June 5 at 11:59 AMon
When you go see shows, how is the sound?
What is the best sounding room in town? Big or small.
Is it ever way way way too loud? Even with earplugs? Is the low end ever so crushingly too much that your ears canít take it? Is it ever so muddy, it makes you want to leave?
Conversely, is the sound ever so crystal and perfect, the show transcends expectations? Do the vocals ever come through so well, the lyrics take on new meaning? Are you ever surprised at how good a room sounds?
There are factors. Where you stand, how loud the bass player has his amp, the inherent acoustics of the room itself, stage volume vs. room volume, and the quality of the sound system / sound person.
Maybe you aren’t in a room, maybe you are outside.
So if your ears could speak, what would they say?
