Show: A Distorted Imagination

  • Song of Bethlehem (from Ben Hur)
  • Pure Imagination (from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)
  • The Battle (from Gladiator)
  • Mars (from The Planets)
  • Blue Shadows and Purple Hills (from Spartacus)
  • Main Title (from The Wind and The Lion)
  • Incantations (from Que Dam)
  • A Mother's Love (from Ben Hur)
  • Bacchanale (from Samson and Delilah)
  • Re-United (from Van Helsing)
  • The Horseman ( from The Wind and The Lion)
  • Raisuli Attacks ( from The Wind and The Lion)

The Good: First of all, kudos to Southwind for finding something worthwhile from Van Helsing. Also, congratulations on making so many selections work together. I have to admit, I do like it when corps start their show BEFORE the start of the show, especially when it's so...dreamy sounding. I like how all the themes weave together. I can pick them all out even though their short and blend together. Strong opening statement. The quotes from Incantations get my attention more than the rest for some reason. At least this corps can sing without amps. It would be so easy to lose your place with all these different themes playing at the same time, but the corps makes it all make sense. I love that they brought back the tenor feature with the basses playing tenor with the tenor line.

The Bad: You can't see it, but the corps did have a dirty visual program this year. That held the corps back. The drumlime improved from 2004 but still has some work to do. Hornline needs to maintain during the Bacchanale section, volume is dropping in strange places. The corps loses steam during the closer, so endurance is something to work on for 2006.

The Ugly: This show is distorted, not ugly

Overview: Another corps that appears to be on the rise, just need to get the dirt out. The design is there and the horns are currently the strongest section of the corps.
