First, I'll start off apologizing if this already exists somewhere, I haven't found it with the search, but my keywords may have been flawed. Have asked about it a couple of times with no pointers either.
So, I'll start this and see if someone will redirect me, or else start gathering information here.
Two things have been playing on my mind and they both are "decoupling" issues. I believe in the examples I've seen that the upper floor part of the stage has been anchored to the frame (is that so?). In that case - should anything special be done to decouple it from the floor - rubber mat or something like that, or is the pure weight and sand contents enough to prevent any transmission through the wood parts?
The second thought I've been having is if one couldn't bring the sand more into play by building the floor part in such a way that it is floating on the sand rather than being connected to the frame?
Do we have any stage experts around? (Or can someone point me to a thread where all this has been dealt with before?)
