Spherclism (Poipoipoi Matt) has made a DVD, mostly from the Poi community, with other manipulation too, Diabolo, staff and Multi Ball contact from Drew and raf.
Trailer availiable on google video
Details of the DVD content
Still from the DVD
I’ve only seen the edit of my bit, it was filmed in just 20 minutes at bristol juggling convention. and I love what Matt has done with it, he’s taken my performance, my work and added to it with his editing, and choice of music, so that the final piece of film isn’t what I would have created on my own, it’s better, it’s a combination of both our art.
Looking forward to seeing the final product when it come out…soon.

A few people have e-mailed me to ask what music was played during Drews Musicality Workshop at EJC 2006
Also at Play Festival, and at Ueberpoi 2005 and Nottingham 2005
Here’s the track listing:
Quannum – “I Changed My Mind”
The warm up spin was too this lovely track which Ryan and I used as the soundtrack for the Bodyrolling Montage
The Turtles – Happy Together
For the Beat and bigger changes in the music
Yann Tiersen – Amelie Soundtrack Tracks 2 and 3 A great album for movers manipulatiors and Jugglers.
Zeida – Track 1 French hip hop that I got from the Berlin Circus crowd, I don’t even know if I spell it right or what the album is called!
Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood
for the wicked Bass line
Serge Gainsbourg – Angoisse
Feeling and mood – Sadness
Shimon and Andy C – Body Rock
Feelig and mood – Bounce bounce
Unknown Artist – Zorba the Greek
A wicked progessive tempo version which starts too slow to do anything useful, and finishes too fast. I didn’t play this at EJC this time but normally do in the workshop.
Paul Mauriat – Etude in the Form of Rythm and Blues and
Walther Murphy – 1/5th of Beathoven – from the Saturday night Fever Soundtrack
Fun stuff at the end – I’ve soo got to make routines to these 2.
A huge thank you to the super dude peg master Burning Dan for once again rescuing me in the Music Department. That’s 3 times now, this is starting to become a habit. Thanks dude.
And big thanks to everyone who came and wiggled and made it soo much fun for me to run.
Any other questions just post them below in coments

The Ministry of Manipulation presents:
Ladies and Gentlemen…
This years EJC was a special experience for all those contact jugglers that attended. Its a rare occasion when so many talented artists get together in one place… we had Greg, Jaine and Therione from America, Dawn and Ryan from Canada, Drew, Jago, Matt Hennem and Colin from the UK, Pich, Bruno and Furet from France, George and Chris from Greece, Em from Sardinia, Mot and Marco from Holland, and plenty more….
Now imagine trying to compress the entirety of those 9 days into only 10 minutes. Filmed by Dawn, edited by Ryan, with a special credit to Matt Hennem for the aerial photography of the site (not to mention the wicked contact)
MoM.com update time. Please excuse us if things start get a bit messy in the change over during in the next 2 days.
Hold on to your pants as we get a new menu and an updated Pich page.
Edit: 4pm, Mostly done now, Site fails in IE on a Mac, But then who uses IE on a Mac? A few problems with not having yet made 3 of the pages that the new menu point too!! but otherwise, fingers crossed it’s all working. Phew
Ok.. its old new, and by now most of you have probably seen the ad. But I had another look today and it still is one of my favorites; definetly worthy of a place here on the Ministry

Its real, in case you were wondering.
