Juggling In Tune



Happy new year, everyone!

We were away at a friend's party for the new year's weekend, and in one quiet moment we lapsed into that most 21st century of passtimes: using the nearest computer to share our favourite Youtube videos. (I'm not quite sure when that became a socially acceptable way to spend time with friends, but it definitely is now, isn't it?) I thought this one was particularly striking, especially for any other jugglers or musicians out there:



PS the piece they're playing is Steve Reich's Clapping Music.

That is sooooo cool. Just showed my son. It like we do with the bounce juggling, only I don't think our's makes as nice a tune! :D

Cripes, I'm lucky if I can throw ONE ball in the air and catch it. So true about the Youtube videos -- the kind of thing that makes my Dad just shake his head. :) Happy new year.

Juggling is hard enough without thinking about the tune, too. Good one! Happy New Year, Rachel.

I could not bounce one tennis ball for that long--much less three keeping tune. Very cool.

I haven't got round to the joys of youtubing yet, but no doubt I will!

That's pretty impressive! I admire those who have both a sense of rhythm AND hand eye coordination. And is just me or is the guy on the end awesomely tall?

Lilian Nattel said...

That is impressive.

It's so great to "meet" you here.... what a fun blog you have! I see you are in the UK... My husband is hoping to be able to schedule a business trip to coordinate with summer break so we can finally head there. Happy New Year!

Tim brings stuff like that up on his iPhone all of the time. I guess we're hipper than I thought!

Mesmerizing! I think they have just hypnotized me and I now need to stop barking like a dog.

Lol--hats off to these guys! I can only imagine how much practice that takes . . .
