I thought I had some good ones, but then I realized I didn't. That's kind of tough.
Too bad you're not putting on a hardcore show - then you could use: "More breakdowns than Top Thrill Dragster" :)

"Jeff Young's", "clarinet"
That's pretty good to P18. Using the Vs on Vs's method is always a good idea. *** Edited 10/20/2006 7:07:49 PM UTC by CoasterDiscern***
What pieces are you performing?
Maybe with the roller coaster "track" and the notes morphed together, I could use the famous Cedar Point T-shirt phrase "I like 'em fast!" ;)
Just in case anyone lives in the area and wants to attend:

Guzzetta Recital Hall, in Guzzetta Hall on the campus of The University of Akron
You could say Best Clarinet Recital as voted by the members of a well-known coaster website.

Best Clarinet Recital - ON THE PLANET!!!
If you wanna go rebel for the recital I still have the "I like 'em fast" shirt...you're welcome to it!
Q: What do Milennium Force and my Clarinet recitals have in common?
A: "They're both smooth, and will rock your world!"
My band director's response to my shirt....
"At least it doesn't say 'I like 'em fast and loose." ;)
EDIT: Here's a link to my first poster.

Not to get personal with you, but I'm curious to know if this is a judgeing performance by teachers, class mates, friends, family etc. Will this performance affect any of your grades and things like that?
If it's a Buffet, do I even need to go there? :)
Yes, I will be graded on my recital, but from what I've heard, if you've put in the hard work beforehand and do your best, grades aren't a problem. If you're wondering if I should pick serious posters instead of funny ones, pretty much everyone else uses funny posters around the music building and then hangs a serious one on their professor's door. :)
I play a Buffet R13.

Not to get off topic, but that's true. Last semester there was only one person who I graded differently than I had already previously decided. But....still play well anyway and tell us how it went :)
It would be too much of an inside (as in coaster enthusiast) joke to make fun of a coaster event buffet. But you could do something with buffets in general.
"You don't have to watch your fingers with this Buffet, just watch mine."
"This is one Buffet that won't churn your stomach to watch."
"Please keep your head above the sneazeguard."
Your recital program sounds pretty demanding! Clarinet is such a nice instrument.
It could be cool to have the poster play off the similarities between coaster riding and music listening/musical expression - which there are quite a few, once you are sensitised to them - the most notable being that all evolves over time, has a beginning and an end and some sort of dynamic structure.
Maybe you could put a "real" coaster track on the poster, and arrange all kinds of expression marks (dynamics, extended techniques, fermatas etc.) and tempo specifications in a quasi-meaningful way around it.
Of course, a train could be on the track as well (with a note on top such as Berio or Ligeti would write to get a singer doing a scream during a piece :)
OK. that's my spontaneous 5 cent - might be hard to arrange this well on a poster and still stay clear visually (address the people who walk by)
Would probably work best on a series of posters, each of which explore a different aspect/relationship between musical expression and coaster riding... :o) lol
OK - I guess you also need some time to rehearse as well before your concert outside of poster design, right?
Have fun, and good luck with your recital!
