But anyhow, when you accept the symphony job, you have to provide the (good solid) sound thats needed in the context of the big hall, no artistic excuses possible. The jazz artists focusses on storytelling and let the amps do the sound production job. ,Or am I missing your point Sonic Soldier is really a nice way to describe it.

    I have got a friend that is an anesthetist nurse and she said that it wasn't too hard to get the certificate. She told me once that she learned that she could use steroids some times to do the anesthesia! I didn't believe her so I checked with SteroidSources.com and found out that it is true. In 5% of the total cases people are allergic to the drug doctors use for the anesthesia so they combine some steroids with some low sedatives to carry on.
