exciting new performance style!

So I was warming up with some '50505' which was going all over the
place since I was just warming up you know, and I started singing
"Friday night I crashed your party, Saturday I said I'm sorry, Sunday
came and thrashed me out agane" you know how it goes, and I started
wondering, Why not?

I could do my show while singing, different rhythms for different
patterns, toss a high one for high notes maybe, mix it up, add another
level of artistic interest. No equipment to carry around and maybe
not work. For the video, no synching necessary, cool. What I lost in
audience I would make up in sympathy. Hey, couldn't be worse than my
juggling! Well, actually....

But I was wondering, I've not seen anything of anyone doing that. Is
there?

Tiff has showed me a bit of this but using tunes rather than songs. I
think notes and musical rhythms are how he sees siteswaps. (This make
sense since I believe he considers himself to be a better musician than a
juggler)
I seem to recall him using a mixture of existing classical tunes and some
kind of jazz freestyle scat type stuff. I dont think he has done any full
on performing with it though but it was discussed.

Good luck with it
Sean

i try to find patterns with interesting rhythms a lot, i would like to do
a juggling act with various bits of percussion, 0s could be hits on a
drum, so could 2s, or 2s could be a srape down something, shakers could be
thrown and caught to create rhythms, claps and hits on the body could also
be involved, aswell as a digareduuuu being a balance playing a tune at the
same time (not my idea)(seen someone do it)(it was cool)!
