Perhaps thence came the title Still Movement?

I noticed some of the song titles on Still Movement are the names of tai chi chuan moves. Waving hands in clouds, deflect downward and step forward to seven stars. Those are all names of tai chi moves.
I study Yang Tai Chi myself smile

Thanks for that, TM77, I was wondering where some of those titles came from. They suit such pieces of music rather well, I think. Do you think that they reflect the energy or focus behind the moves/positions?

ha ha ha! I can't believe it! I did Tai Chi for several years, too, and believe it or not used "Breathe" alongside in class at the time! It works quite well with the "opening" movements, raising your arms....and in comes "breathe"...

Well, maybe Midge and Billy should...both according to their inner rhythms...after all both have written albums with "movement" at the centre (Move Me & Still Movement).

Still think that this album is one of the best though I'm getting into "Push" recently...never listened to it really before...sorry for sounding "enthusiastic" but...ha ha ha! still can't believe it...

Okay, "fasse den Vogel am Schwanz"..."grab the bird at its tail"... nervouslaugh nervouslaugh <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> excited

I think there is an accurate reflection. The songs with tai chi titles are all slow paced and flowing. Just like the moves are practiced.

Way cool album... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

I personally would not play Still Movement during tai chi practice though. I prefer traditional Chinese music.
Another excellent cd for tai chi practice is Frank Steiner's I Ching Symphony.
