David Juriansz & Terrafunka – Reveal album launch

It’s our last chance to dance on the precious floorboards of St Brigids before they are replaced.  For our last week of classes for 2017, Moving Essence is offering something special.

David will be launching a new 5Rhythms® Wave album (read more about how the album came into being here).

This album Reveal – has been a long labour of love.  David came to the 5Rhythms as a lapsed songwriter, and for the last 15 years as dancer and teacher, he has been dreaming about recording music for the Wave.   Over the last 2 years, late night WhatsApp messaging and file sharing between David and his long term friend and collaborator Terrafunka in London, has finally given birth to this new album.  It’s time to let go and ‘Reveal’.

For our last dancing week of the year, David will offer Monday 5Rhythms, Tuesday Tsunami,Castlemaine Friday and the Sunday Sweat at the Talbot.  Each one of these classes will give Melbourne dancers a chance to dance this new 50-minute Wave. Tuesday Early Wave will be as usual with Meredith, although she may play one or two tracks from the album.

After years of playing the incredible music of so many amazing artists – come along and dance to this original offering.  It will look like any other class, except that Terrafunka may skype in to join the occasion and David will offer a small amount of live music before the Revealing…

Download cards of the album will be on sale at all classes at the pre-Christmas price of $15.  The album includes 10 tracks as well as a mixed 50-minute Wave.  It’s great value for home practice or as tracks to facilitate conscious movement.

Hope you can join us at one of these dances!

It’s an honour to Reveal this, our first collaborative dance album.  Thanks go to…our friends and families for your encouragement.  To Gabrielle Roth for the gift of the 5Rhythms practice to the world.  To our wise teachers and all the great musicians who have inspired us to be music makers.  Finally to those who dance, with a deep appreciation of the healing joy of movement.

Reveal – https://edgemusic.net/shoparama

Peel off unwanted layers and dance deeply.  Let your essence reveal itself.

This lush collection of exotic sounds with funky beats and heart-expanding melodies will unify your body and soul in healing movement.

Composed by 5Rhythms® teacher and songwriter David Juriansz and songwriter/producer Kevin Edge (Terrafunka).  Their late night/early morning collaborations between London and Australia have created a blend of deep grooves and lyrical spaciousness.   

Sample their Lyrical ‘technacoustic’ musical flavour – a sound refined in David’s weekly 5Rhythms Melbourne class and enjoyed by hundreds of dancers each week. 

The album provides individual tracks, as tools for facilitators of conscious movement and the selective listener.  But the highlight is the mixed 50 minute 5Rhythms Wave to simply press play and dance.

Some words from dancers at a pre-launch Reveal Wave last week…

Dancing to Reveal is like diving into crystal clear water on a blistering hot day.  I was momentarily shocked by its crispness, surprised by its freshness and thankful for the sheer delight of it. I recommend it to all those who like to dive in deep and lose themselves in the depths of music… It is an ocean well worth swimming in.
Deb Taylor, Dancer, Castlemaine 

As a teacher it’s a tremendous resource and a rare experience to find an album so seeped in the 5Rhythms medicine that it takes you effortlessly through the journey of a wave. As a dancer I was able to let go into this music to allow the underlying intention to move and express through my body and weave it’s magic seamlessly. I will definitely be using this album in my own personal practice as well as for classes. Highly recommended! 
Lucine Eusani, 5Rhythms teacher Melbourne 

What you have created was for me an amazing inner expansion through your music. It is truly inspiring. It felt lucid, raw, pure and colourful, your work is deeply creative and done with the purity of your soul and it has touched mine! I haven’t felt and expressed my dance like that in a long time…and I dance and hold space for dance every week! I can’t wait to get more of your music!
Laura Branco, 5Rhythms Teacher in Training, USA 

Dancing on David and Terrafunka’s new album Reveal was just like the name suggests…it instantly took me to a very deep place inside and I discovered new depths in the richness of the dance being held by this music. The subtleties and tenderness of Reveal, is counterbalanced by a strong clear earthy feel. People: don’t miss this music ! it is a must.
Thais Sansom, 5Rhythms Teacher in Training, Castlemaine.
