|Sound Engineering July 2008 (16 July 2008, 12:18 PM)
Congratulations to Barry Lee, Chong Chee Kim and Peter Looi for successful comnpletion of July SE course. We enjoyed ourselves thoruoghly. This is the first time we had participants from Senai and Malacca who drove up to KL for 2 consecutive weeks.
Here's what they have to say:
" The level 1 SE course has many advantages. Fundamentals were covered, from theory to hands on practical. Assembling the sound system according to signal flow chart helped me a lot. Every major part of the sound system was covered in an easy to understand lecture. Sound is not just a screwdriver ministry but it demands sacrifice. A value for money course."
Calvary Charismatic Centre, Senai
"I've learned much from this course. It gives me the confidence to troubleshoot the problems we have with our church system. Thanks to Timothy and I'm looking forward to the next course!"
Chong Chee Kim, Malacca

|Sound System for Small Halls With Low Ceiling 100 - 400 pax (30 May 2008, 5:51 PM)
Sound System Tips from the desk of Timothy Lee GSUS
Million dollar question: What would be the ideal speaker system for small halls with low ceilings? Small halls could be a training centre, a seminar room, a church or even a conference room in a shoplot setting. This tip is written for rooms or small hall with a performing band in mind.
Big Speakers are a DEFINITE NO NO ! :
1.Big 12” or 15”speakers are an eyesore when hung in ceiling height's of under 12 feet. They are imposing and block projector view
2.Big speakers are more expensive and additional cost is reflected in more powerful amplifiers. However in a low ceiling scenario the power inherent in big speakers are not needed as those who are near the speakers will find it extremely loud while those that are seated further away, find it soft
3.With big speakers, the only logical placement is on the left or right wall. The whole idea is to get the big 'bozos' out of the way. That means a minimum of 2 speakers. However a small sized speaker will be able to fly in the centre thus cutting cost by one speaker!
4.Instrument usually have their amplifiers. Drums are usually too loud. There is no need to amplify instruments through the sound system. Therefore all that is really needed are powerful speakers for vocals. 10” or less speakers gets the job done! Cheaper too!
In small venues with low ceiling, clear vocals is the benchmark. Common problems encountered are:
1.Vocals being loud in front and soft at the back
3.Vocals not cutting through when the band is playing can be solved with proper speaker placement.
A zonal system like front and middle speaker rather than left right is preferred. Scroll down to speakers that caters to low ceiling halls.

|Refugee: Images, a musical by The Canticle Singers (11 July 2006, 1:52 PM)
Date : Evenings of Wed 9 - Sun 13 Aug 2006 @ 8:30pm
Date : Matinees on Sat 12 & Sun 13 Aug 2006 @3.00pm
Venue : Panggung Bandaraya, Kuala Lumpur
The Canticle Singers is proud to stage the musical REFUGEE: IMAGES from Wednesday 9th to Sunday 13th August 2006 at Panggung Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur. The musical REFUGEE: IMAGES, by acclaimed director and playwright Chin San Sooi, is Malaysia's first full-length, locally-written musical in English. and was first staged in 1986 with exhilarating performances.
In two acts, the musical REFUGEE: IMAGES presents a series of contrasting images to highlight the theme that everyone is a refugee seeking to fulfil his life. It unfolds with the historical event of the Vietnamese boat people as political refugees, escaping from Vietnam and making a dangerous journey across the high seas, arriving finally at Pulau Bidong on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It tells the story of their hopes and fears and their desire to seek a better future for themselves. This is in contrast to scenes of Malaysians and others who are also searching and realising that there is hope and meaning even in the turmoil of living.
Isaac Chia working in collaboration with Anson Ong, has done a brilliant job of contemporising the original music and scoring it for a SATB chorus, supported with a stronger orchestration. The music of REFUGEE: IMAGES is an eclectic blend of captivating and tuneful numbers -rhythmic, emotional, energetic, contemplative, stirring and rousing; with general appeal as well a couple of atonal passages to keep the chorus challenged.
The musical is apolitical and is a tribute to Malaysia, for her compassion shown during the saga of the boat people.
New Sunday Times
"......a dramatic musical, depicting each man as "a refugee to his soul" searching for a meaning in life.."
"...The music was emotional and complemented the message very well.."
".. the boat people "were a metaphor of man".... .the musical is essentially about life and death.."
"....Like many others, he found ...: "The music was good.""
