I hope that some guys from the live music industry could help me. At the ceremony, particularly for the industrial revolution and the NHS sections, were all the theme musics played live, particularly for the Pantomime (Industrial Revolution) and the NHS sections. Thanks very much.
Please see video here (19'20'' onwards):
So my questions are:
- How the dummers managed to remember everyting and kept doing this again and again without a score sheet and not making any mistakes (there are so many repetitions)?
- Was there an ear piece for everyone which told them when to start and when to finish and when to change?
- Were all the sounds from the drums collected and broadcasted or they were included when needed?
