Surround sound with Frank DorritieDrum Corps International :: Marching Music's Major Leagueâ„¢Surround sound with Frank DorritieAt the time, Dorritie (who in 1977 had taught Garfield Cadets' guard to play bugles at the end of the piece "I Don't Know How to Love Him") was planning to work toward his master's degree in trumpet performance in order to become a professional orchestra performer.Frank DorritieDowney asked him to come to California and teach the Blue Devils' horn line, leading Dorritie to think, "I could go back to school and start this new career, or go to California and have a good time.Eventually, Blue Devils' founder Jerry Seawright connected Dorritie with one of his best friends, Carl Jefferson, who founded and ran the Concord Jazz record label.Dorritie worked as a Blue Devils instructor in 1978 and 1979 and has maintained a connection with the corps ever since.In 1980, he produced the first multi-track drum corps recording, "State of the Art," with Santa Clara Vanguard and the Blue Devils.This was the most significant evolution of indoor drum corps recordings since the famed Fleetwood Records from the early 1960s.He was inspired to bring drum corps fans "into the arc" - meaning the arc-shaped formation that a corps' horn line stands in while warming up - by memories of Dick Blake's 1960s "Brass by Night" standstill recording of New York area junior corps.As a member of St. Catherine's Queensmen, one of the corps on the recording, Dorritie remembers thinking, "One of these days I'm going to make another recording like that." During the weekend of the Blue Devils' 50th anniversary celebration during the first week of August, Dorritie recorded another surround-sound recording with the 2007 Blue Devils.Dorritie said: "What I'm trying to do is put people in a position to hear drum corps performances like they've never been heard before; that is, inside the arc. Only certain special people ever get to go in there.
