Legends 2019 present - Song of the Siren

Join our underwater universe as Legends Drum and Bugle Corps lures you into the deep with their 2019 production, Song of the Siren. Revered and infamous to sailors, the Sirens of Greek mythology sing their seductive song to lure seaward vessels into rocks and pull the helpless victims into the deep. The Sirens run the gamut of emotional trickery, from seductive and manipulative, to heinous and malevolent. Legends explores all of these attributes with stunning visual design as well as a diverse musical presentation.

Waves crashing, distant ominous singing, and other oceanic sound designs by James Pluth begin the show as a seaward vessel is headed for disaster. A sweet and seductive female vocal leads into a powerful brass impact of “La Mer” by Claude Debussy followed by a quick statement of “Aquarium” by Camille Saint-Saens which sends the corps spiraling under the water as the sirens drag them into the deep. Musical styles and feels change as the corps is introduced to the Sirens’ undersea universe. Utilizing Christina Aguilera’s “Genie in a Bottle” along with innovative metallic sounds in the percussion, the Sirens attempt to seduce and manipulate the corps as they attempt to ensnare them permanently in their world. Symbolized by Alan Silvestri’s “Finale” from the Abyss soundtrack the Sirens now have the corps fully entranced under their spell. A short percussion transition snaps them out of it as the corps realizes the Sirens’ malevolent plans for them. Driven by the second movement of Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony, the corps is in a desperate fight to reach the surface again. With one final triumphant statement of “La Mer” the corps reaches the surface and escapes the clutches of the wicked Sirens once and for all.  #sirens #fromthedepthsbelow #sonicsounds
