Contra Sound Forum
Welcome to ContraSF, a Contra Dance Sound Forum, an automated e-mail list for contra dance sound system operators, dance organizers, bands, callers and other interested folks.
Contra dance sound has some demanding aspects:
) A clear caller, beat and music need to be heard on the whole dance floor, at modest volume.
) The music is live and there are usually several microphones wanting to feedback.
) Budgets are limited; we are often dancing in venues with poor acoustics.
) Sound equipment is often hauled to a dance set up, taken down and stored in somebody's spare bedroom.
) There is a lack of easily available, reliable information about sound for contra dancing.
So in 1998, Weogo Reed started manually resending messages to a group of interested folks.
In 1999 we went automated with an e-mail server.
