Transcript of 3 music ensemble comparison

The comparison By Saul Croxford As you can see, the script are very good at interacting with the audience. Their laidback approach makes it seem like they're so chilled that it could be a perfomance at a local pubs open mic night, however, they are actually at a sold-out aviva stadium! By asking the audience to get involved with singing parts of the song, a high level of co-operation is required within the band members by listening to each other and interacting musically. Without this level of interaction, the band would struggle to keep timing together whilst interacting with the fans. however, by perfecting these skills, the script manage to bring whole stadiums to their feet. The script are a band originally from Ireland. They consist of three members, Vocalist/keyboard - Danny O'donoghue, Guitarist/Backing vocalist - Mark Sheehan and Drummer - Glen Power. Their rehearsals will be as a whole group with also some personal rehearsal at home. With a repertoire of completely original music, covering a range of genres, the script have gained a massive fan base since the release of their first album in 2008. You have just watched a performance of Mambo, written by Leonard Bernstein, performed by the Venezuelan youth orchestra. Their rehearsals will begin independently at home. The next stage is to rehearse with their section of the orchestra before finally coming together as a whole orchestra. By including some dance-type movements, the orchestra are getting the audience to join in and feel involved. However, this takes a very high level of listening to be able to come back in at the correct time, following the conductor. The Venezuelan orchestra manage this exceedingly well, which is due to very hard practice. At this point, Badly Drawn Boy seems to be interacting with the crowd very well by asking them to clap his rhythm and he is holding his timing quite well. However, it is the only thing he has going for him. His negative attitude, lack of lighting and lack of professionalism is already making his performance look doubtful. However, for the artist, his performance turns from bad to worse when he starts offending the crowd and using terribly foul language in front of younger children. This shows all of his hard work in rehearsal has been wasted as people dislike him for his lack of respect. This presentation identifies, describes, compares and explains different key aspects of working as a live musical ensemble. I use video examples of three different performances, the script in Dublin, the Venezuelan orchestra and badly drawn boy in Northampton. There was a video of badly drawn boy in this space where he begins swearing about how he doesn't like the area the venue is in. It has had to be removed for suitability reasons In conclusion, this presentation should have given you a better idea of what is required for your ensemble to create perfect performances. In my opinion, the main traits to make a great ensemble would be: communicate well with each other, interact with the audience appropriately and use visual effects aswell to aid your performance. Also, you should not act negatively to anything associated with the audience as they will then dislike you, no matter how good your music is.
