Hasn't anyone thought that with all the sound engineers that the bands brought with them that the problem may not lay with all those proffessional engineers?
It may be the rig itself..... just not working well in that tent. There are often 'blind spots' were the sound is completely different to the rest of the field. The sound on the open air stage front left was often horrible. However, further back it sounded great. Jimmy Cliff was a good example of this.
It's strange because the sound at Reading on all stages was second to none. For the record I have no complaints about the sound or the bands sound engineers. Perhaps not as good as Reading but I feel that there are other reasons for this.
Shellovski ! i think you may have just hit the nail on the head there and if i think about it the BRT is in a bit of a dip/low point and this could maybe amplify the sound to different parts of the site and seem very loud a long way from the BRT? anyway im 46 and i dunno if my age affects my hearing and maybe we are being a bit harsh on the sound guys im sure they know their job and have all the right gauges graphs and gadgets to help get it right , lets build a sound barrier!
Sub bass hell was an issue last year too but they didn't listen Never heard Taraf's cimbalom...........er pardon... or as Manuel would say "ke"
Maybe a different rig? One thing for sure is that the engineers for both WOMAD and the artistes ALL know their onions. That I am sure about.
Swap the BRT and CG? Bloody hell, I hope not :-O
You want better sound then you have to look at other options. The sound at CG often gets lost........ A tent would hold the sound inside. I'm not saying that that is the answer, just opening it up for discussion.
My tent might hold the sound ...but it'd be a squeeze to get the crowd in.
Give it a go, though!
Big Red clearly NOt holding sound inside! and CG would get drowned by the funfair motor bike! goodluck in sorting this Womad.
