Superior Singing Method ReviewOne of my favorite IATSE sayings is "Chaos creates CASH." This is the exact nature of the relationship between the "Production" and the local IA crew. If the production is well planned and organized, the day will go exceedingly well. If the production has organizational issues, these issues will put pressure on the deadlines all day. Stuff happens... Trucks show up late, chain motors break and thunder storms blast in! None of that stuff is the IA's fault but because their work rules, such as, Meal penalties, will be enforced... the pressure mounts.

This pressure (even on a perfect day there can be pressure) impacts the amount of - production stage time - available to "Opening Act." The Opening Acts production representative needs to be aware of how the Headliners production is coming together. Show up early and pay attention to the workflow. Monitoring the progress of the production is critical! "

If nothing else, we've established that there are forces beyond the control of us mere mortals...Let's look at some basic "Opening Act" scenarios from one of the previously mentioned perspectives: Headliners sound tech and Opening Act Musicians.

Let's take a quick tangential left and define what makes a "Top Notch" sound company? First, the gear has to be excellent and in good working order. They must also be very knowledgeable about the technical aspects of sound reinforcement. Those two sentences describe about 80% of the sound companies I've encountered over my 35 years in this business. So if the gear's good and the sound techs know what they're doing what's the problem?http://disfuncionerectilremedios.com/
