RONIN replied to Dave Gerhart's discussion Podcast with Dr. Michael Bump
"not only that... scoring music was meant to RECORD music... not to teach it...   if you give the same score to 10 different bands to play, youw ill get 10 different interpretations... expression, phrasing, etc.   some ppl have even said…"

RONIN replied to Dave Gerhart's discussion Podcast with Dr. Michael Bump
"this is a silly notion at best....   I remember once trying to teach a song to an academic musician and she couldn't play it... I've seen MANY academic musicians make mistakes where those who allowed themselves to feel the music…"

"if I were to arrange a tune, why would I have to score it?"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"this is exactly what Pelham was suggesting, though.   I myself, wouldn't mind being a judge (once there is any category that I actually don't play in), except that I am not academically trained... my academic musical knowledge is not…"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"Khuent... the problem is that if a calypsonian sings a song abt the blue devils and uses the traditional rhythm of the jab jab whistle, and the arranger loves this piece and uses it as his/her central piece of music in the arrangement.. the one…"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"Disagree with point number 2.... Boogsie has complained abt the judges even when he won... because win, loe or draw, the judging (I won't insult ppl and say "judges") is crap"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"I strongly disagree... how can a judge tell an arranger how to think? The purpose of panorama is to explore an arranger's creativity... to tell them how to arrange would be to take away from that.   I have listened to music from…"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"Kheunt... he is not saying anything about intellect... but the fact is that when I go to the states or england or they come here and I speak my dialect, they don't get it... when they are around me for a while, they get it...   Sid is…"

"I've heard comments like these come from winning arrangers... again, my arrangr (Boogsie) was still complaining abt the judges even when he won This One's for You Bradley"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"This is EXACTLY what I was talking about... the judges CANNOT POSSIBLY hear EVERY part of a panorama tune in one go so all their comments are BS and their judging is BS... only someone IN the pan culture... playing pan for different arrangers and/or…"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"I feel Panorama is essential from a CULTURAL standpoint... the excitement, the bragging rites, the friendly competition, the pecong.... the prize money is not a major concern for me...   However, I feel that the current format of Panorama, as…"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"lol... I told a friend that Panorama is not about music anymore and therefore my band (Phase II) will NOT win this panorama... he cuss me... I predicted the top 4... got it right... I told him to call me the prophet :P. lol   But seriously...…"

RONIN replied to Pan Times's discussion Pelham Goddard - Thoughts on Panorama and Judging
"Sid.... I agree that one does not have to be a master of an art to judge it, but the problem in panorama is that the judges seldom represent the masses that you speak of. The judges are not only given a restrictive set of criteria; not only do they…"
