A bass drum. A scratch record. A cello. A lionís roar. A dogís bark. A gamelan. All of these sounds and millions more are right at your fingertips. Literally. Itís the human bodyóthe greatest and most diverse instrument on the planet. Think of the possibilities. You can stomp with the whole foot, or just with the heel. You can tap your toes or slide your foot across the floor. You can pat your tummy or pat your chest. Now imagine all the possibilities when you use vocal percussion and other mouth sounds. Combine body percussion with vocal percussion and mouth sounds and the possibilities are endless. ìBody Electric 2.0î explores some of these possibilities in the form of grooves and other rhythm activities that are accessible, educational, and wildly fun. Suggested forms are provided for each, allowing you to extend them into performance pieces, perfect as a change of pace during any concert.
