Posted:Er... different point of view here... something very angry (Earthtone9 for instance) I tend to treat my poi twirling as if it were a martial art, or some kind of weapon.Anger is a gift.Evilsun

Posted:I have twirled to (variously):Classical (Ride of the Valkyrie and Toccata and Fugue both recommended)Hard HouseFloaty, widdly tranceLive drumsThe Beastie BoysJapanese power popTo be fair, anything with an easily recognisable beat is good for solo practice, it helps you get a rythm, but anything you know well goes down well in a performance because you can anticipate the changes and alter moves accordingly. I once had an old guy ask me whether *I* was producing the music from transmitters attatched to the poi. It was house music and he'd maybe never heard it before.I nearly bust a vein laughing.Drakien------------------'Only ever use the pink kind...'

Posted:Pele has fun with whatever music fits her mood. Like Drakien said almost any music can be spun to provided it has a rythm.This has been debated quite a lot. Most like trance and drum music. Personally I found that after 20 minutes of that I get really bored. I'm a fan of modern music and so is most audiences, which is Pele's focus.Now to be a jerk, as a regular reader I urge the newbies to use the search function provided for you. If you're still interested in the music topics try doing a search for it. I did a search through the Social Discussions for any topic with Music in the subject and found 18. This one being one of them. If you think of a question, search for it first. It's probably already been asked and your answer will be found there. Since music is very popular read through the old threads and gain insights there.Thank you.------------------"Except for that Mrs. Lincoln, How did you like the play?"Pyromorph - Let the fire change you[This message has been edited by Pele'sWhippingBoy (edited 09 October 2001).]
