Sounds
As the arena doors open the smell of stale lager and sweat rises. Crowds, already gathered in little pockets, talk amongst themselves as an undercurrent of electricity buzzes through the room. The lights have not yet been dimmed for the main act; the stage clearly visible even from the back waits for its performers.
Amidst jeers and laughter, a man takes the stage to complete the sound-check. He eyes the audience nervously and bends to secure cables. Looking as though he wished the ground would swallow him, his hands tremble under the pressure of being watched in his task. His checks done, he stands for the bit he dreads the most. Clearing his throat he taps the mike and timidly calls "testing . . . 1, 2,3 . . . testing." Once again, the crowd cheers and laughs . . . .
