Yamaha Montage Festival - Brazil

Unread post by parametric » Sat Feb 03, 2018 12:38 am

Hi guys . . .

A member on one of my other Forums (FusionZone) has reached the Finals of this competition in Sau Paulo,

Brazil on February 6th.

Daniel - or <Drummond> as he is known in the Forum, produced this video in order to be considered . . .

He is one of 3 Selected finalists, and has been "lent" a Montage6 to prepare with . . . . .which he will keep, if he wins.

He also has a Kronos and (of course) a Fusion6HD :)

Thanks for sharing Chris. Hope he does well, the prize is certainly worth the effort ;)

Is this run by Yamaha or a third party?

Maybe NOT as I don't see the Yamaha Name prominent here . . .

https://www.eventbrite.com.br/e/final-m ... 50?aff=es2

But then again . . . . . https://www.facebook.com/yamahamusicalbr Looks like its a "Regional" Yamaha . . . .

Yeah that's definitely a Yamaha sponsored competition. I would not have known about that unless you posted it. This is the thing about Yamaha, they have no central news portal so unless someone like you comes across this info and mentions it, the vast majority of Yamaha fans will never know about it.

It makes NO sense to me at all to withhold ANYTHING that "Trumpets" the Brand Name . . . .

Perhaps Yamaha Marketing and Publicity would like to "enlighten" me?

I would not have seen it if <Drummond> had not mentioned it on FusionZone

http://promusicproducts.com/forum/phpBB ... 341#p36338

Even if they EXPECT no participants from the other side of the World, why keep it a secret?

Potential Montage purchasers would be interested to see the object of their desires, surely?

:roll:

I agree Chris. It does't matter "where" the competition is, Montage fans would be interested and of course the wider Yamaha community too.

It's an odd strategy for such a large company that they think everything needs to be sectioned off into small zones outside of which nothing is shared. Their main site simply gives corporate news and a lot of that is out of date and everything else you have to search out and find yourself. Very strange indeed!

<Drummond> hasn't said how it went, but has posted this in the other Forum:

http://promusicproducts.com/forum/phpBB ... 342#p36342

@Derek - there some detail how he uses his kit in performance (inc the Kronos), may be of interest?

Daniel <Drummond> got THIRD place for this magnificent (IMO) performance . . . . .

This is a video of the "practice" performance he gave . . . .

@Derek - check out around 5' 52" in . . . . :wink:



Criteria apparently was "who used the MOST Montage Resources"

His prize will be a Reface of his choice. He's justly happy to be third from 300 entrants . . . . . .

I already messaged my congrats on a great job . . . . ((i))

Congrats to Daniel. That was quite a performance! Certainly shows off the versatility of the Montage very well indeed. In many ways it reminds me of Genos.

I hope in addition to the reface they will offer a hefty discount on the Montage should Daniel choose to buy one ;)

Hi, Chris

Finally got chance to listen to this. A hard vid to listen to, as amongst some great playing and iconic songs, there was some absolute cheese pieces in there!

Having said that, that is just personal taste, and what it does show case is Daniel's talent as a keyboard player (way beyond my humble skills) and it also showcases the versatility of the Montage.

Would have loved to have heard much more of that Vangelis intro.

And if that was the standard to get third place, I wonder what second and first were like! :)
Regards
Derek Cook
