LMAO!

Judging by how red he was before it started, I'm guessing that wasn't the first take.

I like it! But those ain't Greeks, more likely All-Blacks! "Maori style".

Aaaaaahhhh, but sometimes it finds you. We merely need to listen.

Have a look at Anna Meredith's HandsFree, composed for the young musicians of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and performed at the BBC Proms last year on 4th August. Over 100 kids in a virtuosic display of choreographed body percussion at the Royal Albert Hall, London: http://youtu.be/_BcdnUZlv1M.

Just brilliant!

Just found the full-length version of that performance of Meredith's HandsFree, complete with a humming interlude that sounds oddly reminiscent of Ligeti's Lux aeterna (used in the film 2001 - A Space Odyssey): http://youtu.be/Xo97ztKpplw

Enjoy! grin

P.S. Not sure the link works... But you can still access it by clicking on the original link in my previous post, then scrolling down on the right side to where this video is. (A less formal pre-Proms performance: http://youtu.be/vyXkFqEmNlo )

While you're there, also have a look at the NYO's hilarious performance of Edgard Varèse's Tuning Up wink http://youtu.be/z0z19ZVBybM

The rhythm played is so macarena-like.
