During the pandemic, Jonathan and Eric have been running sound for virtual dances across the country, helping performers sound their best and enabling dancers to make the most of quarantine. They’ve been having a lot of fun bringing community together and making connections.
Sometimes Zoom decides to reduce the quality of the audio stream from the performers, and the result can be an unsatisfying listening experience. Or you may not have the strongest Internet which may result in choppy, inconsistent music. The sound tech, however, always gets high-quality audio from the performers because they are mixing the sound before sending it into Zoom, giving them the “best seat in the house.” Now, with the help of Internet broadcasting, Jonathan and Eric invite you to hear what they hear. Just touch the Play button below during a dance that they are running sound for! (Note that the audio will be about 5-15 seconds behind the video of the meeting.)
