  • About the orchestra thing. I'm not in band but coming from a choir perspective I know we are are grouped together to help us with our pitch. It makes it easier for us to here each and stay on the same note.

  • As someone who has done chorus all my time in highschool if altos were mixed with sopranos we would get off tune because sopranos had the melody so it was easy to get it mixed up. If altos werent all together then we would end up singing the melody and get off tune. Same for the tenors and bass singers. Having everyone in sections keeps the harmony together because if we have the wrong tune in our ears while trying to sing the correct notes its easy to mess up. Im assuming that is also the case with instruments. So many things is going on when your doing a performance its easy to mess up. Like try listening to a popular song and singing the lower notes or something the none common melody in the song. You would mess up and sing the melody like the singer because its what you hear so you try to mimic it Edit: No I always take my shoes off immediately when I get home. I would walk around barefoot or with socks all over the place if I could. I live on campus and if its late at night I will just walk downstairs to get like food i ordered or something with just my socks on.

  • Btw it would change the sound if the instruments were moved because some instruments such as flutes and clarinets are quieter then other instruments such as trombone or trumpet so flute and clarinet would be less likely to be heard if some of them were in the back and it would probably still affect them if they were just scattered too

  • I played flute throughout Jr. High and High School, and in my district, if you were in band, you were in all the bands (marching, concert). We didn't have an orchestra. Anyway, yes, you can't hear the flutes during marching season, but some of us would play piccolo during marching season. It may be the smallest instrument, but that sound will cut right through due to its high pitch. So, that's the way the flute music comes through in a marching band.

  • It would disrupt the section ENTIRELY, it would be SO MUCH harder to play your part hearing 5 different instruments playing ENTIRELY differently part around you and not being able to follow the harmony you are playing... they section people off in order to most efficiently teach the music to each instrument. It would be DISASTROUS not to be seated together... as a musician, I’m a little disappointed in how lightly you guys asked this question

  • Sonically it would make little difference, but it would be harder for a conductor to give direction to any certain section. In any symphony performance you are listening to the piece as interpreted by the conductor, not the piece as played by the symphony (hopefully - if not then mistakes have been made). And yes professionals still share stands. This way the higher chair continues to play as the lower turns the page.

    toanzhoutoanzhouMånad sedan
  • So first of all there are no saxes in a standart symphony orchestra. Mixing the position of the instruments would cause a whole lot of havock. 1. It would make it impossible for the conductor to give cues to a single group of instruments. 2. most of the time two people look at the same sheet of music, which reduces space taken by stands and so on. 3. Each group of instrument has a person who everyone looks up to and who is in charge of things such as bowing and so on. This would be really confusing, if you had to search for that person or even if he/she is seated behind you. 4. You would loose the asthetic of synchronised bowings, trombones usw. 5. Instruments like percussion are placed near the back so they are not in the way of other people when taken place and also they might be big and blocking the sight to the conductor. 6. The Sound would be harder to follow, because melodies would come from multiple directions. Of course the playing at the same time would be quite more difficult for the individual player. There are a couple of other things, but those are the ones I could came up with on the spot.

  • I wasn't in orchestra or band, but I was in choir, and we did "mixed formation" all the time. It was way more challenging because you couldn't always hear other people singing your part, but he payoff was that the sound was INCREDIBLE. It prevents the left-ear-phone vs. right-ear-phone effect and it blends so much better.

  • Musician here, yes the instructions must be together! This way you can hear each other and tune to each other. For marching band they still try and keep the sections relatively together, even if we’re all moving around.

    Beth NielsenBeth NielsenMånad sedan
  • Why people tend to sit together in band is that it helps to hear your section while playing to tune and such, it also looks nicer, some people do share music, it helps the conductor, and I think it does effect the sound. I was in band and we once did an exercise where you sat next to a different instrument (I played low brass and sat next to a clarinet), from a musicians pov, this made us need to like trust ourselves while playing because it was harder to hear the others playing your instrument. I'm not sure if that makes sense but I'm currently at that part of the video and I couldn't help but comment why that is. This is coming from someone who was always in band and not a professional so I may be wrong.

  • Hi so I've been rewatching the HP and FB movies and I just came up with a theory... not sure if it's already been done or not, but here it is. Why does it seem that Dumbledore aged really quickly? Well what if the reason for it is because he sat wasting away in front of the Mirror of Erised? He himself told Harry in CoS 'Wizards have sat wasting in front of this mirror, for that reason it will be moved' what if he was talking about not just other wizards, but also about himself. Sat watching himself and Grindelwald when they were younger 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • Answer to the question to the musically inclined In an absolutely perfect world, moving the instruments wouldn’t really change too much since everyone would just be playing perfectly, but in our reality, humans are not perfect, and guaranteeing that all the instruments within each section are blending their sound well is very hard when you aren’t right next to them to hear them. Sometimes as a practice thing, we would scatter randomly around the band room and play our parts just to help US Open our ears to other things, and it wasn’t awful

  • I can’t speak to the effect of the placement of instruments in a band, but as far as a choir goes it certainly changes the sound. When I was performing with the region choir last year (back when we could perform) our director intentionally had us jumble around for a specific song because she liked the way it effected the sound to better match the tone of the piece.

  • A bunch of people have already said it, but yeah: it's less to do with sound and projection and such and more to do with the performers themselves. A flute, for example, doesn't tend to play same notes as a sax, from my limited experience and memory. Therefore, put the performers with their sections, and you tend to alleviate that issue.

  • It depends on what you're talking about, if you scatter them around the whole auditorium, it allows the audience to connect more to the music, but if you're talking about just mixing the players' seats so that they're not with their respective parts, it would just make it harder for the players to hear their part and fix tuning issues, and wouldn't change the overall sound.

  • The placement of different instrument groups matters for sure! The timbres of different instruments are placed strategically. If the flutes were behind the percussion, you might not hear them. Also, many professionals still share music! When I write for orchestra, I might say “first stand” meaning that I just want two players to play that particular part. Also, the conductor needs to know where different instruments are! It would be impossible to give a cue to instruments that are randomly seated. Thoughts from a music teacher and recreational composer. 🎶

  • Middle school teacher here and et me tell you, making a sitting chart is like strategizing a battle plan ! You have to separate the trouble makers, pair up good students with others in difficulty, accommodate kids with glasses in the front, those who need a lot of help somewhere you can easily reach them... and then there are the enemies, the bad influences, the loner kid you are trying to help make friends... it can be a nightmare with some groups ! But I'm not gonna lie, if we notice crushes that we approve of, we can be tempted to play Cupid ^^

  • Bands/orchestras sit in sections for the performers sake. Mixing is rehearsal exercise for some occasions, but it helps to sit in sections. Now the flutes can hear the flutes and stay in tune and make sure they're not breathing at the same time (big no-no). They can keep track of their parts together and make sure they play everything EXACTLY the same way. In summary, the seating is for the performers, not the audience.
