and

The A Cappella Championships.

btw, photos on the poster are taken by me last year :D

A little background information on this competition. Organised by The A Cappella Soceity annually, it is its sixth installment and is growing bigger by the year. This year, the competition has been held at both the esplanade and Republic Poly Cultural Center (its the best equipped and designed hall in any polytechnics. SP is FAR lagging behind it.)

A new category called the pop choir category was started this year and saw a mix of primary school kids, secondary school students and even adults compete in it.

For the college and open ensemble categories, the tickets were guess what? SOLD OUT!!!

Yes it was filled to the brim that night and I personally feel that the singing standards have been raised to a very high level. To share some photos of that night:

If ur wondering why all photos are from the same angle, the reason was that esplanade only allows photographers to shot static from one location

Mixer Stress Test

Posted by chanxj on 06 Aug 2008 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

One reason I have always loved Mackie mixers can be seen from this video. Its a pity brand Y didn’t survived though as I also like it as much as Mackie. I personally never even trust brand B ever though. :)

note: any people who do enough live sound will be able to figure out what brands they are talking abt. Brand A is a giveaway though.

A Tip for Minimizing Audio Feedback

Posted by chanxj on 03 Aug 2008 | Tagged as: Live Sound, Music, The A Cappella Scene

Many times people ask me how can one minimise feedback in a live sound scenario. There is one thing which many people including me constantly overlook.

I was mixing at The A Cappella Festival organised by The A Cappella Society, and was wondering why was I getting so much feedback, and I finally found out what was causing the trouble.

See that red arrow in the picture? The monitor Speakers are pointing towards the partition, And the partition was reflecting the sounds from the monitors STRAIGHT into the performers mic, causing me significant loss of allowable gain/volume.

After moving away the partition, the system works far better.

So the tip is, speaker placement plays a large role in minimising feedback. Do not hesitate in taking remedial steps where possible.

I was at The A Cappella Festival 2008 organised by The A Cappella Society. We had a guest team who came all the way from indonesia called Jamaica Cafe which charmed the crowd with the beautiful voice. Below is a short video on them produced by me.

Time – Lack of it

Posted by chanxj on 15 Jul 2008 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

For now i’m rushing out school assignments, so any updates here will be minimal for a few weeks. Once i am free, I will write a little about my Imagine Cup Journey other than day 1 :)

The reason for lack of updates in Paris was actually due to a packed schedule, and the internet not working when I wanted it to.

Imagine Cup – Paris Pictures

Posted by chanxj on 12 Jul 2008 | Tagged as: France, Imagine Cup, Photography, Singapore Polytechnic

We didn’t place top 3 sadly but well we were already top 6.On a lighter note, Singapore placed 1st in the embedded design Category (Clap clap clap clap clap). Congrats to team Trail Blazers from Nayang Polytechnic. I wonder where are the press? Its not easy to place first in such a international contest :)

Team Mama Gaia from Temasek Polytechnic was placed top 12 and that was also a commendable result considering the amount of opponents and they were up againsts were largely university students.

I would also like to congratulate all the teams in the photography category due to the fact that their work for the finals were all Top notch (ok except for 1 team which i didn’t particularly liked the work), and I would say everybody has been a winner. I especially liked the work of the 2 croatian teams.

Pictures of the whole journey would be here @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/25035085@N07/sets/72157606106641727 I would update if anyone else like Soon Bing posts up photos.

Last but not the least, I would like to thank everyone who has supported us on this journey.

Cheers
