    Cobblers!! Derek Watkins can make a trumpet/flugel sound as big as a house from pedals to screamers! If you're doing it properly it doesn't matter what m/piece you use.

    Concerts with choirs-love or hate them?

    I do a few concerts every year with choirs, and I particularly remember trying to play my way through Bach's Mass in B Minor with some old bint's music resting on my head! We were a bit tight for space so I was right in front of the octagenarian sopranos who were to lazy to hold up there own...

    A wacky future!!!!

    If you some cash and some spare time you could do this automated sheet music stand now! You'll need 20-odd wireless webpads with backlight colour touchscreen displays, and an off-site/internet music server. Visibility of the screen would be quite good, re: new mobile phones, and the webpads...

    Audio Files for Internet

    Yeah! Of course, but I couldn't eat three!! Besides, PASTY VORBIS, doesn't quite have the technical ring to it, however it could be the procedure used to 'cram' as many oggies as possible into a lunch-box. Now that's what I call compression!! :wink:
