BAD JUDGEMENT BY MANAGEMENT
To Pan Trinbago:
President and Management:
Please note that the Steel Band Panorama is a LIVE SHOW, and it is necessary that you include the MC's presentation of the Bands as they appear and leave the stage.
This is not a Music Video as B.E.T AND MTV.
THE Outside World wants to know who is who in these videos you sell.
All the video does is start, play, and stop with the name displayed some times.
Even Trinidadians who are not in the country for carnival don't know what is going on far more international viewers.
You have to include the MC's introduction and views including an overview of the band.
Group the DVD's by categories. Large bands, small bands, etc.
People in America boycott your DVD's and buy the boot legs with all the Live Commentaries.
It is unprofessional to leave out the Master of Ceremony from these DVD’s.
As I have said it is a live Show and not a Music Video.
Those DVD; s that your show sells are boring without the Presentation and comments of the performers.
Get these Editors you hire to MIX THE VIDEO To Show Multiple Parts of a performance
SOUND QUALITY: VERY UNPROFESSIONAL: THESE ENGINEERS RAISE AND LOWER THE MIXER WHILE THE BAND IS PLAYING SO SOME BAND SOUND BAD AND LOWER THAN SOME OTHERS.
THEN! YOU HAVE THE MIC. PLACEMENTS.AROUND THE BAND INSTEAD OF PLACEMENTS AT SPECIFIC INSTRUMENTS WITH THE RELATIVE ARRANGEMENTS.
A LOT OF THESE SOUND PEOPLE WHO PLACE THE MICROPHONES ARE JUST THAT, MIC PLACERS. THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT INSTRUMENT PLAYS WHAT OR WHAT TYPE OF INSTRUMENT ARE PLAYING.
YOU NEED A SOUND MAN THAT IS A MUSICIAN, PAN PLAYER AND EXPERIENCED THE EXPERIENCE OF PAN AND MUSIC IN GENERAL. LIKE MYSELF.
I DID LIVE SOUND FOR PROFESSOR IN JERSEY AND HE LIKED IT.
BOGISE IN BROOKLYN AND HE LOVED IT AND FOR MULTIPLE OF PERFORMERS AT A LIVE SHOW IN BROOKLYN NY.
I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLACE MICS FOR THE RADOES STEEL ORCHESTRA IN TWO BROOKLYN PANORAMAS THEY PLACED FOURTH IN THE FIRST ONE EVEN THOUGH THEY MADE A BAD ENDING AND SECOND IN THE OTHER BECAUSE OF THEIR EXCELLENT SOUND WHEN THE OTHER BANDS SOUNDED BAD BECAUSE OF MIC PLACEMENT AND SOUND MIXING.
CALL ME: DEPEZA TEL: 347-573-7196 NEW YORK.
Another serious point: Don't wait until Bertie Marshall, Anthony Williams, and Neville Jules are dead to give them a lot of praise and flowers.
Take these men and open a research department and use their skills to advance the steel drum. Open Pan tuning courses and workshops to teach young Trinidadians.
This is what you call utilizing your core competencies.
I have just completed a research paper that I did on Pan Trinbago for my Masters, and I have found out that people like GUPPY BROWN AND LINCOLN ENTERPRISES ALONG WITH A LOT OF OTHER PAN MANUFACTURERS DO NOT HAVE THEIR OWN WEB SITES.
I have found people in Japan and Europe with their own Web site selling and teaching how to make steel drums.
What is pan Trinbago doing? The authorities collect a salary and then grouse about who is stealing the technology.
I have also found on the internet blue print patents of machines to make a steel drum from scratch.
Point to Note Get the Pan Tuners to create their websites and include the introduction of the Panorama bands in the DVD's.
