Invitation: Instrumental Restriction at
Warren Wilson College Bryson Gym!
I’ve often tried creating an ecstatic wave journey without any lyric heavy songs. It never ends up happening. I just love using songs with lyrics both in english and other languages too much. But for this mix I will restrict myself to only songs that have instrumentals, or I will cut out any lyrics. I’m curious how it might land for our dance community and the creative direction it might take me on.
I’m always trying to evolve and adapt my craft as a music weaver, and an easy way to do that is to impose restrictions that force me into uncomfortable and uncharted territories. If you’d like to journey into such an exploration, I invite you to come to this dance.
The invitation there for you as a dancer, will be to explore the messages you find in music that is devoid of words. And also, the invitation is to explore how creative restrictions can fuel your creativity and dance expression.
Micah is a long time ecstatic dance dj and facilitator. His mixes can be found at soundcloud.com/mikayaswabb. He is also offering one on one DJ lessons for new aspiring DJs as well as for seasoned DJs who are curious to learn more about how to craft sets that use an ecstatic dance style wave progression through a diverse set of musical genres. Please email him at if interested in lessons.
