comment How does countertenor vocal technique differ from “standard” vocal technique?
Well, castradi are banned but we still have countertenors. And present-day countertenors don't seem to have speaking voices that sound like children. For example, David Hurley of the King's Singers sounds like this when speaking.

comment Managing batteries for live performances
@supercat Wireless transmission is rather power-intensive. In my experience even a couple of days is pushing it, when you consider the pack is going to be powered on for up to 5 hours per day assuming a long performance and prep time.

comment What are the practical reasons for still having transposing instruments?
@supercat Reading glasses? The trained eye can use a number of qualities to figure this out, including proportionality compared to the notehead and size of the staff, or relative location compared to other more readable notes. But now we're getting off topic...

comment What are the practical reasons for still having transposing instruments?
@supercat It's just a matter of practice. Some instruments are very used to switching clefs, others prefer ledger lines. Some particular examples are flute and violin, who are very at home reading many ledger lines above the staff, and piano, who are most used to treble and bass clefs with 8va/8vb/15va/15vb notations.

comment scales on the guitar
My one addition is this: The only thing wrong with this answer is that it is using a very nonstandard definition of "scale". Much of this could have been avoided by stating your alternate definition at the beginning instead of making the claim that everyone else is wrong. Instead of using ad hominem attacks in comments, asking for references and documentation is much more useful.
