with palms towards the floor
have you ever tried duel pistons? you need a fellow dancer for this one. one person goes down whilst the second stays up, then as the second one goes down, the first one goes up then as the first one goes back down the second one comes up etc
synchronisation of dancing
Then we'll see who's fierce
you can point cross body or outside of body and then throw various other dangerous points
Think lions pouncing, dogs shaking water off themselves, cats prowling, birds hopping, etc. Can also be associated with the type of music being played. So electro music - cat movements. Metal music - dog movements. Pop music - bird movements. Fox movements are inserted wherever possible
When recording one of my recent songs I was doing sea creature esque dancing while recording the different parts of it. And at one point I looked through the glass to the control room and saw the studio guys pretending to be mermaids. Bit off topic but it was very enjoyable and hilarious. There is a video for it but it doesn't feature any human dancing, just stop frame animation. I like animal/music interfaces though. I also did a song about tigers recently and while I was doing it I danced around like I was summoning a real army of tigers. ANIMUSIC.
Stop frame animation > all other animation.
^this comes from an animation student so is certifiable fact
It's not very advanced animation but some children helped make it and it's about sea creatures so I think that make up for the un-advanced technique. Can I do a jag? Well I'm gonna anyway. Behold the wonders of lo-fi stop frame animation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAlVtpimEzk
No sound coz I'm at work but I will come back later.
To the video, not to work.
It's probably well over a year since there was that thread on your music.
One minute late.
But a bit souped up due to studio involvement. EP coming soon(ish)...
-> back to ->
James Brown again
middle eight, get in someone's face and scream some lyrics
YYYYYEEEEAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH canyougetmesomewaterfromthebarplease MY HIPS DON'T LIE
one of them is pissed, might be prince, can't rememeber, but he, on stage, leans on a lamp post (prop thing) and it's just a prop thing (like i just said in brackets) and it just falls over and he goes off the stage. i can do stuff like that at will.
i had proper forgot just how weird this is
but with more sweating
my brother in law was really pissed and did one move all night. It consisted of strutting around the dance floor with a massive grin and pointing at people in time to the music
people who were at LSF/Battles/Caribou ATP may have seen him...
...doing a move where he goes forwards and backwards in deliberate footsteps with the rhythm, with corresponding arm movements, arms out at the side a bit like a robot (straight forearms, but looser), sometimes with more relaxed arms, and with intermittent walky spin things.
pretty distinctive. his hair whips around a bit when he spins.
it's the best, but only he can pull it off.
one I will call 'spasming'
apparently another I do is 'like the hoffmeister bear'
another I do is like jazz hands, except not with hands
along with electro bodypunking
I do a dance where i am continually almost falling down/over, but recover with a robotic jolt on the beat
but in general, its a hip shake with arms in the air, eyes closed, arms in the air. Fist pumps for good bits, air grabs for power ballads.
