What's Perpetual Motion Freestyle? Think of it as ''swimming for grownups''. The traditional way of swimming freestyle is designed to maximize speed in the short term but makes you tire quickly and increases risk of injury by emphasizing fast, shorter, powerful strokes. Total Immersion's Perpetual Motion Freestyle is designed to help you swim longer with more ease and enjoyment, and to allow for the easiest transition from pool swimming to open water. There is no more efficient - or satisfying - way to swim freestyle! Previous Total Immersion swimming DVDs have helped thousands transform struggles into skills, because they provide a rich visual guide to the key positions and movements of low-drag, high-fluency swimming. The Self-Coached Workshop on Perpetual Motion Freestyle goes a step further by teaching you how to learn, not just how to swim. Dozens of fine points and tips on how to avoid the most common missteps and increase your sense of clear direction are provided, based on TI's years of coaching experience. Whether you want to train for Olympics swimming or simply build your skills, this is a must-have for every swimmer!
Barbara Thompsons twelve-saxophone ensemble plays ten original works. One can hear from the first track, Perpetual Motion how rich and colourful is her scoring, its density and contrapuntal cleverness going hand in hand. What is so refreshing about Thompsons writing for this large all-saxophone ensemble is its variety. As an eminent executant herself, she knows the instrument from the inside and can write for it, as Benny Carter did before her, with a technical assurance and very personalised and particular sound world that makes her writing so distinctive. To take just one more example, Bulletproof has a snazzy, cinematic drive both exciting and visceral and one that instantly compels attention. The ensemble includes some inspiring musicians - Rob Buckland and Andy Scott to the fore - and plays with terrific verve.
