Live Performances Are About More Than The Music

I had started writing some posts and giving advice on my social media pages, as my way of giving some advice regarding some of the things that I see and hear, both at shows, and on artists’ social media pages. It always seemed to be the same things, coming from “artists,” who excel in playing the blame game: making excuses for why they aren’t succeeding. So, I thought that I would try to be helpful, by calling artists out on their behaviors! It may not be popular, or politically correct, but if an artist can’t handle the truth and some constructive criticism, then they are in the completely WRONG business.

Architectural Acoustics: How Your Music Hall's Layout Affects Sound Quality

The science of modern concert-hall acoustics was born in the late 1800s and early 1900s in the United States. The father of architectural acoustics was Wallace Clement Sabine, an assistant professor at Harvard who helped to plan the internal acoustics of the new Boston Symphony Hall, erected in 1900, and is considered to have be one of the best concert halls for its acoustics in the world.

By testing various halls using seat cushions, people, a pipe organ, various other materials and a stop watch, Sabine carefully measured the time required for different sound frequencies to decay within the various spaces. Today, there are six attributes in considering the acoustics of concert halls. These six attributes are the standard for which all concert halls are based.

How To Stay Sober And Safe At A Concert

Concerts are great events for most people, and the energy of the crowd is as much a part of the show as the performers. There are multiple factions and demographics when the concert is a particularly big event, such as an all-day festival where people actually set up tents and other camping equipment. Depending on the circumstances, the excitement of the event also comes with potential opportunity to indulge in drugs and alcohol that many people do not enjoy. And, for those who are in recovery, this can be a particularly uncomfortable situation. This does not mean that anyone cannot attend a show and stay sober and safe while still enjoying the music, but there are some situations to avoid concerning both sobriety and safety.
