With a particular skater if you are using some of the same movement, then fine because that is their personal style or perhaps a signature movement for them.
The problem with much of this is the same 4 or 5 choreographers are working the chunk of the skaters.
on topic - i always thought someone should skate to explosive by bond, it's practically tailor made for a program full of jumps with all the accents in the music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B42dozDeEfA
Legends of the Fall is right up there with East of Eden for "most beautiful soundtracks!" There was a brother sister pair team for the US that skated to Legends some years ago and didn't do it justice. Would like to see it used again.
Thanks for the links. Lovely to revisit good music.
I think that from the same year, Quincy Jones's score from "The Color Purple" can be used effectively.
"The Piano" would be great, but IMO Delobel & Schoenfelder (I miss them still) did that to perfection at 2008W. That's a high bar to climb. That being said, another Jane Campion film which has evocative music was her follow-up "The Portrait of a Lady". It's not the most memorable score, but cut in the right way, would work as a dramatic solo piece for a single lady.
I'd like someone to skate to Quintessence of Dust by Govinda (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_VIQD_Z4FQ really cool Spanish & Indian fusion, some other good ones off this album, too, like Compassion, and In thru Time). Also love Makambo by Geoffrey Oryema (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWpERZAIy3E remember Pure Moods? )
One of my favorite songs that is not quite long enough () is The Dance by Tangerine Dream, for the movie "Legend" (it might work if you added a few seconds of ambient windchime at the beginning and end, sort of like the movie scene http://youtu.be/bWuToQn9VH4?t=1m45s).
I hope one day a hot and sexy dance-team will skate to "Lily was here" by Candy Dulfer and Dave Stewart.
And I hope it will be Weaver/Poje because I wanna see Andrew with this music. Yes I am shallow
