Year after year, Electric Forest Music Festival in Rothbury Michigan plays host to a gathering of some of the most dedicated and unique flow artists in the Midwest and beyond. The very first time I experienced Electric Forest in 2014, I knew it was something unique. That year I received some of the best light shows in my life. The only regret I have from that year is that I didn’t record the fire.
This year, I came prepared and I now have video evidence of the artists responsible for burning down Electric Forest.
My top 10 favorite light shows from EF 2017 in no particular order…..
The 2015 IGC Legends Bracket this year is entirely stacked with some of the best glovers ever. There are representatives from all over the country facing off, and each one of these guys has earned Superhero status in the gloving community. This year, the Legends Bracket is going to be a battle that will go down in history with Waterloo, Normandy and that time Loki opened a portal over NYC.
The LEGENDS and their superhero alter egos:
[PM] Rhapsode – The Blue Ranger
Fear the words, “It’s morphing time” when it comes to this guy. His digits and dials are creative as can be, but Rhapsode’s true skill comes from his ability to pantomime concepts and create humorous illusions. This power ranger was a favorite to win IGC last year and has only leveled up since.
When I first met these two Hawaiian glove gods [IM] Puppet and [IM] Mez, their use of “Web Theory” embodied their styles so naturally that I had to rename it for them. I, Jest, do hereby officially dub this the “Infinite Movement Theory.”
This theory is the outline for a very useful, but fairly advanced practice tool. It is to be used in the lab to take your learned moves and sequences, break them down to their bare bones and reconstruct new patterns and combos.
