[klondike mary] preaching to the quire

Postby klondike mary » Mon Jun 15, 2020 9:16 pm

Sing out loud and clear!
If you can't be good, at least be loud!
But remember this one thing, or you might wind up embarrassing yourself.

Choirs relevant at all?

be good = at singing?

you = one specific person? a group of people? a generic person?

Sing out: a song? A scream? A confession?
Good: talented? Following along? Following rules? Morally upstanding?
Loud: in voice? In making noise? If so, with instruments? Machines? Explosives?
Remember one thing: remember to do something? Or avoid doing something? Remember a fact? A rule? Something someone might want to know later? Or check that you did remember?

Sing out: a song?This.A scream? A confession?
Good: talented? Following along? both sort of true - just singing on key, mostly. Following rules? Morally upstanding?
Loud: in voice? This. In making noise? If so, with instruments? Machines? Explosives?
Remember one thing: remember to do something? Or avoid doing something?Both. a fact? A rule? Something someone might want to know later? Or check that you did remember?

Locking knees/fainting relevant? Would the embarrassment come from something that could be seen? Could be heard?

Gestures relevant? Grimaces? Should one remember this thing when singing in a choir? Band? Karaoke? Alone on a stage? On the street? When caroling? Is it also something to remember when playing instruments? When doing non-music-related things in front of an audience? Such as acting? Doing standup comedy?

Gestures relevant? Grimaces? Noish. Should one remember this thing when singing in a choir? Band? Karaoke? Alone on a stage? On the street? When caroling? Is it also something to remember when playing instruments? When doing non-music-related things in front of an audience? Such as acting? Doing standup comedy? All of these somewhat relevant, but not because of music or performance. There is another connection that is relevant.

Having food stuck in your teeth relevant? No, but you are sort of along paralell lines to the RT.

Slouching relevant? Swaying? Standing up straight? This. Standing up straight enables a person to sing more powerfully, which is why a choir generally stands. Under what circumstances could this be embarrassing?

Standing up straight may cause your shirt slide upwards. Relevant? Maybe because your naked belly could be seen by the audience?

When one shouldn't stand? When one shoud bow one's head The choir might bow their heads during prayer, but not while singing, as that would cramp their vocal cords, so sort of relevant.

Does that mean OUR current conditions, here and now, or is the puzzle set in another time?

If the former: Is Covid 19 relevant? Social distancing? The fact that the choir would be standing apart from each other, thus making each individual more prominent?

Is this something that's more important to remember when distancing? Something only important when distancing? Would it be the same if the distancing was done for other reasons? Inhaling deeply relevant?

You didn't answer my last one - is each individual more prominent, standing out in some way? Or is video recording relevant, like closeups with the virtual service?

Heh. I've been recording some virtual storytimes in the teen tech lab at work, let's see if I can figure this out!


Is the backdrop, or anything else behind the choir, relevant? Anything around them? Are they holding anything relevant?

Color? Is anyone wearing greenscreen-color?

Are body parts cut off by the camera field? Exaggerated? Close-ups relevant? Panning? Editing? Is the service shown live?

Is the problem reparable immediately (by moving the camera or the singers, for example)? Could it be fixed in post-production, if there were any?

Is the lens cap on?

Belly? This general area, yes. The others n.r.Crotch? Legs? Bottom?

************SPOILER************
"Going to church" on Zoom may be somewhat disorienting for those who were regular or even occasional attendees previously. Especially if one was used to standing to sing, for prayer, to give responses, or for any other reason. They may have to be reminded that if they don't (or can't) lift their device when they stand, the camera is going to get a good view of their mid-section, and not everybody has a mid-section that can stand such close scrutiny.

Possibly no one will see them except the minister who will be forgiving, but why put him under such stress?
