WHAT IS IT?

This is a model that allows users to create marching band drill formations and experiment with ensemble synchronization strategies through metronome placement in different areas of the field. The effect on performer synchronization and listening strategies are shown in the difference between the performer synchronization radius (e.g., listening to the met) and the performer play radius (e.g., playing directly along with the met).

HOW IT WORKS

Users will have to upload a .png file of a drill formation from PyWare charts, or use the blank .png provided.

To start with NetLogo-generated performers, begin by selecting "clear."

If you have an existing drill set saved as an image file (.jpg or .png), please save it to your desktop. Then, move to the "Code" tab at the top of NetLogo and change the file name to match your file using the following steps: 1) Locate "to clear" 2) Find "import-drawing" 3) Change the file name in quotation marks to the title of your drill image file. 4) Test by hitting enter. NetLogo will let you know if it cannot locate the local file, and it will provide you with the pathway it is attempting to use.

Use the slider to select the number of performers. If you have a drill chart ready, select 1 so that you can experiment with which performer to place the metronome behind.

To generate your selected number of performers, press "setup." To move performers around, click "move performers" and use your mouse or trackpad to drag them around the field.

Select your timing source and create a red box where the timing source will be located. When selecting "met-behind-performer," a metronome will be assigned to one of the performers. You can move this performer where your intended timing source will be, and the metronome will follow if you click "create timing source" a second time.

HOW TO USE IT

This model is scaled to a standard football field that is 300 feet by 160 feet. If you find that the scale is visually incorrect, check the Settings tab and make sure the dimensions are the following: max-pxcor 30 and max-pycor 16. Un-check "world wraps vertically" and "world wraps horizontally."

THINGS TO NOTICE

When selecting "met behind performer," NetLogo will arbitrarily assign the metronome to a turtle (performer). You can click and drag the turtle and select "met behind performer" a second time so that the metronome follows the turtle after selection.

The synchronizing with the met radius is 110 feet, or a delay of 100ms (Repp and Su 2013). The playing with the met radius is 22 feet, or a sound delay of 20ms (Sparks 2016).

Green performers can synchronize with the met (e.g., listen for the count-off or to prepare to play). Blue performers can play along with the met with a negligible effect on perceived delay as long as they remain within the radius. Orange performers are a significant distance from either the timing source or co-performers, and these performers may need individualized strategies for timing coordination.

THINGS TO TRY

First, try the steps in order as indicated with the text boxes. Then, experiment with metronome placement and the subsequent changes on the synchronization and playing in time radius.

EXTENDING THE MODEL

An extended model will consider sources of error like metronome cable quality, performer demand, and strength of metric line in the part of the performer who is standing in front of the metronome. Future models will also account for timing situations on the move as drill formations take shape.

NETLOGO FEATURES

This model uses the in-radius primitive as well as a series of primitives that allow users to click and drag performers into place.
