Download Epsiode 3

Well, I said I wanted to get Episode 3 out before the end of the year, and I just made it!

Episode 3 is now available to view online or download:
Our Media (full version, downloadable)
Google Video (full version, downloadable at a lower picture quality)
YouTube (introduction only)

As always, you can Subscribe to the podcast in iTunes. Note: it takes up to 24 hours for the video to appear in the iTunes music store, but if you subscribe, it's available immediately.

In this episode, we'll explore timing patterns, which are the rhythms we create with our bodies as we dance. We'll take a look at five different patterns, how they may make your audience feel, and which musical rhythms they complement.

This episode includes:
- simple exercises to get the patterns into your body
- theme & variation exercises to explore different ways to use timing patterns
- do-it-yourself exercises to spark your creativity
- four combinations that use timing patterns
- two ways to adapt timing patterns to zils

The DVD will be available soon; I'll post again when it's ready.

Note: this is a big file (almost 800MB), so you'll have best luck downloading it from a high-speed connection. If you can't view the file, make sure you downloaded the whole thing successfully.

Update: 1/12/2008: If you've had trouble downloading this episode, try watching it in VLC. If it still fails, download the low-resolution version. The video quality isn't as good, but the smaller file size might help!

Update: 4/9/2009: The Podcast DVDs have a new home on Amazon:
