packwick Posted October 21, 2022 Report Share Posted October 21, 2022 is there a Buda Johnson video on YT? i'm doin' some catchin up. i waaas going to come over here and confidently declare Carmel the winner after watching that BA video, but then i saw an outdoor performance by Carmel w/ some really rough music patches. indoor, please. go back inside 4 me. too bad BS isn't going. i would have ranked them ahead of BA at St. Louis on the strength of music alone. gorgeous gorgeous goooorgeous music. that flute tone, ugh. flute is one of my many instruments, but i'm crap at it (pro brass player, though, so, ha!). looove the subversion of the music flow w/ ballad at end, I Can't Make You Love Me, what a wonderful arrangement of that song, wonderfully communicated. great sounds. visual program strong. cute field level critters, see that a lot these days. rotating block in circle to open very Bluecoats 2014. BA's show by comparison sounds generically intense for me, not much memorable about it, and a very familiar look w/ the field blasted w/ flags and odd somewhat confining set pieces. performance great, but hard to follow up last year's highly emotional, mystical, colorful masterpiece, can't blame them. Avon is.... Avon i guess. i thiiink they'll gather steam when they move indoors. the contrast of the blood-red fabrics and black uniforms makes some cool effects. kinda like watching Crown, maybe not the comparison they want besides brass playing.
