"I’ve been using Geoff’s music for contemporary dance classes for a number of years. It started with Aeros, as I’ve worked with one of the choreographers several times. I first heard the Bipedal Movement in Houston during a dance company warm up class. I immediately purchased it. To give you an idea of the excitement this music brings to my classes, the first cd got plenty of use and I had to replace it because of scratches (this was really before the time I had access to CD drives and iTunes on computers). The second purchase, I held on too for quite a while and now has mysteriously disappeared, so I’m soon to order my third cd and all others (with a mind to save the originals and use my iPod for class). I’ve taken this music to use for master classes through the United States and Hawaii to Europe (Austria, Germany, Portugal, England) and as far as Taiwan. If I don’t have live accompaniment, I always have this music. The dancers love the introductions in different languages and each meter is instantly a hit. I’m thrilled to hear any new projects."
