My first body percussion video:
Can't watch it at work but I'm gonna ask if I can have the afternoon off
I'd like to see a live chicken in the next one!!
Or a dead chicken.
firstly,I lost you on 'solo'
secondly, the 'mouth' was a bit weak, as you did it on its own and didnt incorporate it later....sorry, I'm only being so harsh cos I can do 'popcorn' with my cheeks....or my teeth.
thirdly and forthly, what was vamp, and what was groove?
so it was basically a compilation of everything he'd done before it, repeated
I'm having lots of fun reading your comments! :) Thanks!
For questions and observations:
-I use the numbers as "chapters" 3 of them are not a body part but just a way to describe what's going.
-a vamp is a section of the song where an instrument is playing with more emphasis, like being "on fire"
Thank you for bringing us so much joy!
For your next project, could you please do a CRAZY drum cover of the song "Sound Guardians" by Lightning Bolt? Thanks!
Yours in anticipation,
I obviously cannot match you for any real skill, but please could you do a mouth response to my 'popcorn' below....consider me serving you on the mouth thing :D Im sure you will excel.....but just let my 'popcorn' be the jumping off point.
(Its a little bit amsr'y Im afraid....and I have a few problems with the high notes)

you have missed slapping your thighs butt and ankles
like these guys
(had to do a mild version of this (minus butt slapping) at junior school, wearing mum made lederhosen)
here they are doing it to rhythmic wood working
(I know that people also make canoes rhythmically,,,but couldnt find it on youtube)
here they are tossing a man high in the air
Sorry, I know this isnt as technically proficient or as or complex as yours.....but it does incorporate theatrical body movements and I guess its part of a tradition, maybe like morris dancing too.....with you being a crossover between these and drums.....its interesting though, because your body IS always to hand, so it makes sense that our ancesters would have used their bodies as well as wooden things to make percussion.
DO you think percussion playing came out of working communally on canoes/felling trees? or does it originate from heartbeat? or both?
If they used manual labour for hauling.
Ship songs I guess rely on rhythm too.....I wonder if the oarsmen on biremes and triremes also had songs to accompany the drumbeat?
Do/did miners synchronise their pickaxes and hammers.
Especially the first, I don't think I've ever seen that kind of thing.
I believe percussion is the oldest for of music ever existed, I believe that already hominids were doing that a million of years ago.
I saw some blacksmiths synchronising their hammers hits, pretty cool!
we've all done it at some point.
