    Something about the way the interpreters were lit this year caused my attention to shift over to them pretty frequently. That's not to say it was a bad experience, something about the way they would dance while signing in time with the music was really kind of beautiful. Props to Goldenvoice for making this available for hearing-impaired fans.

    i watched the interpreter during seun kuti, and while he basically did nothing when they were singing, it was fun to watch him. my gf is really interested in doing something like this (she's going to school to become a certified interpreter).

    Those interpreters were awesome. Interpreting music is a whole different beast than general interpreting. It's pretty difficult. As someone who works with the deaf and hard-of-hearing community on a daily basis, and is learning sign language, I very much enjoyed watching them work. I also managed to get a hold of a balloon during Bon Iver's set, to feel the vibrations and kind of feel how some deaf people like to experience music.

    I was amused watching the interpreter do Jarvis Cocker's stage banter during Pulp's set.

    does anyone know how these people get these gigs? are they part of a company that provides interpreters? or are they hired freelance by goldenvoice?

    The sign guy gave up during Bon Iver's set when he was hitting some of the high falsettos. And I even saw him looking through a binder before hand so he knew what he could sign. I was right in front of him near the screen so I couldn't help but notice him..
