Incognita Review

Postby randomval » Tue Jun 06, 2006 5:40 pm

Okay. I know that a group member responding negatively to a review invariably sounds whiney and ridiculous, and thus I should keep my mouth shut. However...I felt that certain comments made in the Incognita review were unnecessary and made me feel just a little indignant. To quote the Dave Trendler's review:

"Some ethnic groups lean toward a common soloist tone. The Asian-American soloists I've heard often sing from the back of the throat and sometimes a little nasally."

I'm unsure how Random Voices gets classified as an "ethnic" group, to begin with. A large percentage of group members happen not to be white, but we sing what I would call pretty typical collegiate a cappella fare, so I don't see how that is reflected in our music. I also understand that the wording of the statement "The Asian-American soloists I've heard often sing from the back of the throat and sometimes a little nasally" is very carefully hedged not to say something like "All Asian-American soloists are nasal and sing from the back of their throats," but then the inclusion of the ethnicity of the soloists in question is irrelevant. Why not just say "The soloists (particularly on Goodbye and Goodnight Moon) seemed to be singing from the backs of their throats"? It would have gotten the point across without making any unnecessary ethnic statements.

Perhaps I'm being overly sensitive, especially considering that I'm one of the soloists mentioned. I am not trying to imply any deliberate racism or malice on Dave's part. I found most of his review helpful and positive. This particular remark just caught me off-guard, and I felt compelled to respond.
