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…..
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.
Last weekend I got the opportunity to hangout with Scott and Derek from the acclaimed heaven trap duo Slander at Moonrise Festival in Baltimore. This was a great chance to catch up since last time we saw Scott, he was throwing down a crazy set for us at the International Gloving Championship ’14, honoring his gloving roots. These dudes dished out some great advice and showed a deep passion for the music, with a common root in gloving.
