Dancebox deluxe: Mike Song and KRNFX (8:26)
Is it early to be reflecting on 2014? I would say that it’s been about a year since I decided that I would turn my dance video obsession into something productive. So let’s do it! Cheers! Thanks for reading!
I wrote about Mike Song in my very first newsletter, a test which was sent to just one person, so I figure it appropriate to feature him again for this WAWD eleven-month-iversary. This time around, he’s on stage in a massive Korean arena joined by Canadian beatboxer Terry Im (aka KRNFX).
This performance is an extended version of an older Song + Im collaboration(3:29), in which Song dances to Im’s beatboxing. It is planned carefully, with the score and the choreography created precisely to match.
I have to say—and maybe this is because I have more experience watching dancers than listening to beatboxers—some of the sounds that come out of KRNFX are beyond my level of understanding. I almost didn’t share this video because I felt that the beatboxing was so good that it practically overshadowed the dancing, but who am I to deny you a show? You definitely won’t be sorry.
A fun challenge: how many different ways can Mike Song and KRNFX open a door?
