Interesting points ... especially today, since I just got "elected" to
conduct a new concert band we're setting up here (for beginners ...
should be interesting). But, having done a bit of study about the role
of a conductor it really does bring the "audio only" question to the
forefront. And I'd not talking about the highly visible music we see
at rock concerts, etc.
As an audience member I find myself playing lots of attention to the
conductor as well as the physical movements of players: the tension in
the face of a cello player, the stance of a trumpeter, etc.
So, for live music ... yeah, the visual becomes quite important. But,
when we translate this to a recording, the visual is all but lost.
Even in a video recording, I get very little sense of the visual.
Maybe I need a much bigger screen?
I have decent vision, so I have no idea how this translates to a blind
person. I can only assume that other senses assume the role of sight?
