Well-Known TRIBEr
so what;s the deal?

I wanted to check him out.. i see an event listing for him at Boa on March 11th.. and now one for him at 99 Sudbury on March 11th.

is boa not happening or is he playing two events?

from what i know, jojoflores booked it.. and he not involved at boa anymore.. so i'd say the 99 posting is the most accurate.

of the three body & soul djs, krivit is definately the most underrated. but dont let it fool you. he's a great dj and it should be a great night.

hmmm the plot thickens. I had wanted to hit Boa again and was gonna do it this night, but now it may not be on there?
I just wanna hear some good sound. So if it is sudbury they better bring in a system.

Btw, what is up with 270? When is that re opening?

Boa was being really flaky about stuff (not sending the contract back in time, not paying the deposit on time) so they moved that date.

Or so I've heard...

that's pretty sketch. this seems to be happening pretty often with Boa and their bookings. too bad cause i'd WAY rather hear krivit on boa's sound system, and in their club as opposed to sudbury. the sound there is just not good, and 200 people smoking butts in one room also sucks.

I don't think Danny is any better than Matthias Heilbronn...
in production or spinning.
Danny ranks bottom of the 3 dj's in Body and Soul.
Matthias should sub for Danny when they play in Japan.
And since Francois K is playing very esoterically (not all house),
it's hard to feel any flow to his sets now...which means
there could be 2 replacements and Joe is gonna need another partner.


Danny is a marginal dj like Frankie Feliciano.

yeah.. lemme correct.. i love when francois drops a strictly deep techno set.. i'm not all about his deep space/all-across-the-board sets (mind you, i'm one to talk) :)

btw mondo.. if you are saying 'better' referring to music programming.. is that completely subjective?

============

Opinions are always subjective.
Only having objectivity would be the most boring thing in the whole wild world as Holden Caulfield would say.
Using words like 'marginal' and 'better' are my ways of
conveying my views on contrasting dj's.

I can't imagine there being more subjectivity in expressing views about any dj's ability in all of the music industry. Meaning there is a hell of a lot of differing views on any one dj. Having pure consensus on any dj is infinitely rare.

yeah, but i agree with you that cielo is tha bomb ;-)


...I think Cielo would be better if Matthias Heilbronn and that marginal dj...let's call him Danny for now, should tag team and do a weekly Thursday there.

The best house night I've been to in the past few years was last month when Louie Vegas and Kenny Hedge played there on a Wednesday. It was like the United Nations gathered under one roof, unified together as a house nation.

Complex sounds like house music neeeeeed a sound system like Cielo's.

The sunken dance floor filled w/ people adds a dimension of acoustic baffling with direct sound applied to that human surface.
I assume less than 2 second delay... that's hot.

a 2 second delay? i don't understand.. as we all know.. sound travels at 340 metres/second.. so that's about a mile in 2 seconds. I don't know any clubs that are a mile long.

I'll explain it this way...the Glenn Gould theatre has a delay of around 2 seconds... as did the Twilight Zone.

i think you are talking about a 0.2 second delay which would represent 68 metres from sound source to listener. a 2 second delay in a club would be completely inaudible and atrocious and i'd be running out of there screaming.

Good sound begins with good acoustics. Now apply that to your sound problems

Gayla R. Postma

Nick Colleran recently visited a church where the preaching was excellent, the music terrific, and the sanctuary beautiful. So why did he leave with a headache?

"Sound was bouncing all over the place, making everything hard to hear," he says.

Colleran, marketing director at Acoustics First in Richmond, Virginia, says sound problems are relatively new in the life of the church. "Two thousand years ago, Jesus didn't perform acoustical miracles; he preached where it was acoustically beneficial," Colleran says. A thousand years ago, churches put slits in walls and filled the cavities with ash until the sound was right. Today churches that are designed without considering acoustics are a setup for sound difficulties."

Sound Problems
To test the acoustics in a room, clap your hands and count the seconds till the sound goes away. If sound is bouncing around the room five or more seconds later, you're inviting listener fatigue and frustration.

• Faulty acoustics. Whether you consult Anchor Audio, Mackie Designs, Telex Communications, or another sound group, you'll discover that good sound starts with good acoustics. "Some one trained in sound can immediately tell where the resonances are," says Carl Lafky, vice president at Anchor Audio. "That will dictate the solution."

Mike O'Neill at Electro-Voice agrees. "If the acoustics aren't right to begin with, there are a number of remedies available," he says. "But fundamentally, anything we do to a preexisting de sign is a Band-Aid approach. You can only minimize problems with sound reinforcement."

• Dated design. The problem with some church sound systems is that they were designed as public-address systems, says John Fuqua at All Pro Sound. Those systems are no longer adequate for today's worship needs, which can range from traditional to contemporary to a combination of both, and include everything from choirs, organs, and orchestras to guitars, worship bands, and praise teams.

Contemporary music requires less reverberation, which is also good for speech clarity. But when a church alternates between organ and amplified instruments in blended worship, sound is a problem. One solution is to install reflecting panels at the chancel end of the auditorium so the choir projects out. If the space is too small, electronics may be the only way to increase reverberation.

Just so we are on the same page:

What do you think the acoustic delays are at:

1.Guvernment
2.ACC
3.Skydome
4.Mod Club
5.Footwork

ok.. this time i actually read (parts of) your post. you are talking about reverberation decay, not delay. yes, bass traps and sound dampeners helps reduce reverb decay. a delay would be something like a bounce back, say the main pa is pointed at a wall that's 34 metres away. the sound will hit the wall and travel back towards the dj or performer. as the sound travels 68 metres (to the wall and back), the delay will be 0.2 seconds. :p

Danny is a marginal dj like Frankie Feliciano.

are you trolling?

danny has way more DJ history than joe - he started DJing regularly in the early seventies, and was a resident at the Roxy for the first 4 years.
in the early 80s he was known as one of the few NYC white boys who could scratch, and played everywhere worth mentioning.
Francois K is also a strong DJ, and while he's playing a very eclectic style at Cielo, that's not so different from what body&soul was about.
from what i know, B&S was never strictly house.
Joe Claussell is lots of fun, but hardly consistent, and has much less experience than the other two.

now i know you want to promote your Matthias party, but i don't think he'd like you to be doing it at Francois and Danny's expense.
(i'm assuming mondo is jhames)
