Title: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: Mattias on November 25, 2004, 10:16:28 PM
Hi everybody.

I just wanted to ask what music you listen too(if any) when you play with the diabolo.
I havent started training at home for real yet, but I will start soon and then I need some music to 'jam' too.

What I usually listen too is Type 0 Negative, System of a down and then and then the cure. But none of those are in my opinion suited for diaboloing.
Freestyler which TMFP used in the beginning of the Diabology trailer is a perfect example of good 'jamming music'
And I am looking for more of that kind of music I guess, breakdancing music should work good, but I am very new in that area of music. And now a days there arent much of that music on MTV. They just broadcast blingbling rappers and britney and her copies.

So got any tips for good Diabolo music?'
Any help and/or info on what you guys listen too is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

To be honest, I don't always listen to music when diaboloing. I go to two juggling clubs, at the first we share the halls with cheerleaders so I have spent the last 6 mondays  listening to their music (and slowly going insane), the other club doesn't tend to have any music. When music is played it's hard to please everybody :)

I find that the best music for me to diabolo too isn't always the music I like to  play at other times. I find that if the music is too fast I tend to rush and things go to pieces.  Basically I like something with a bit of a beat and the kind of tune that is predictable (so I can time certain tricks for when I hit a certain part of the tune).

One thing I did when trying to find music to perform to was listening to a radio (whilst diaboloing) and switching between stations untill I found a style or song that grabbed me. It gave me a better idea of what was available rather than just relying on my own cd collection.

I suppose going through the Internet radio stations might give you a wider choice than you get with normal radio. Then I suppose burning of a compilation of likely tunes or even getiing hold of some 'best of' cds' might be usefull.

The bands I like to play while juggling are most of time trip hop bands, such as Archive and Morcheeba. That kind of music or something more agressive, that depends on the mood...

"body rock" by Andy C
"organ doner" by DJ Shadow
"lighting" (cant actually remember what its called, but something like that) off of the Blade 2 soundtrack.
"power rangers (club mix)" by Arron waters i think, dont hold me to that, yes it's a bit crap but i have performed to it a couple times and its actually pretty good.
"it's like that" Run DMC
"renegade master"

there's a few to try out, i have performed to all of them and would do again. Hope that helps

Well at any style you can play, as long as you are in the right mood. But sometimes I play on the chilling kind of music. Music from cirque du soleil or celtic myst music. Makes you focus totally, you don`t care about whats around you.

I like reggea, Bob Marley tha best! :P  That's very relaxing if you're diabolo-ing. I also like to listen to music like in the EJC2004-video (by the Shiltons) and that kind of stuff... Besides that, rock and metal do the job! :D

some dance tunes especially from the late 90's are good, as are artists like fatboy slim and groove armada. Some rock tunes also work as long as they aren't too heavy (i find).
Tunes with scratching in are quite good for videos if you get round to making them.

I generally listen to pretty much anything, my style seems to adapt to whatever I happen to be listenin to at that moment, recently its mostly Manic Street Preachers, Snow Patrol, Chili Peppers or Bob Marley...a wide range  :D  but basically anything I enjoy at that moment, even if you think it wouldn't suit diabin, I can usually make it  8)

Ska - everybody loves ska.

I'll also listen to some 8) tunes. Like Motown and anything where you you think 'yeah thats cool' to get me into the zone.

I also like the stuff people play at about 1 in the morning at conventions. I think thats when the best tricks start happening (or maybe thats when the whisky is taking effect). :D

Yeah late nights at conventions are a special time (when club passers are tired ;) ).

I did a show at a festival and had chosen Loaded by Primal Scream to perform to, I had a nice (to me) flowing routine. I was 6 foot away from the monitors (under a ten foot ceiling :) ). Yet I couldn't  hear the music over the wall of sound coming from a massive sound sytem next door playing Ska/two tone/reggae etc. Not to worry its great music to diabolo to anyway :)

We have a music style called Maracatu here in Brazil it is awesome to juggle anything listening to it... (try searching for nacao zumbi on Kazaa or any other P2P program its worth it...)

I don't really have any special music to listen to when diaboloing.... but usually i dont pick anything that goes through a whole lot of time signatures, but has a constant beat to it.

A few suggestions:
Feeder, Chili Peppers, Queen, U2, Maroon 5, Keane, Aerosmith, Everclear, The Killers, Jamiroquai, Gorillaz, Toploader :wink:

Also some stuff with no singing... Propellerheads and Death in Vegas are great!

But that's just me   :)

(some obscure bands to check out - Atomship, The Postal Service, Sinomatic, Jadis, Porcupine Tree, Spock's Beard- if you can find them  :P )

This has gone a bit off topic, sorry - but hey, its all good  8)
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: Eduardo on December 03, 2004, 05:09:58 PM
I also like some psytrance, Infected Mushroom, Dali, Psyside, Vortez, GMS and Sensient are some that come to my mind now... Aba Structure - Free Energy is a nice choice...

Post by: diabololi on January 24, 2005, 04:50:05 PM
Word has got around after my last performance and I have been asked to do a performance at a charity (tsunami) auction! Wehey, but I think a performance to music would work better than a demonstration in these circumstances.

   The only problem is that I have no taste in music  :oops: . I would appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction of some. I will be doing basic 3 and 4 ball juggling, flowersticks and diabolo. I think I will sync the performance with the music, so I need the music first and the performance is on friday.

Thanks
Oli
P.S. Should I change the music when I change prop?
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: martijn on January 24, 2005, 04:54:40 PM
You can try Fatboy Slim, Chemical Brothers, Prodigy.... Or something more relaxed like Bob Marley :wink: or you can use heavy metal!!! :P

I don't know what kind of people your public are, but I would take a *relaxed* song from Fatboy Slim. I love to juggle or diabolo on that music! :D

Switching the music, when you switch the prop can be a good idea, IF you have a long act with diabolo, and a long act with juggling, etc. If you don't, it can be confusing, maybe even irritating if you switch the music all the time...

Good luck with your performance! :D You can do it!
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: diabololi on January 24, 2005, 05:00:01 PM
Thanks. I don't actually really have any music, so is there any nice music available on the internet? It is a church thing, I think, so maybe not heavy metal! My act will be quite short (5-10mins)so I think I will merge the flowerstick and juggling with 1 bit of music and change with the diabolo.
Thanks Oli
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: Tom_G on January 24, 2005, 05:52:37 PM
I think music has been discussed here (http://www.diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=96) mostly, but also in the performing (http://www.diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=57) topic. Choose something that suits your style, flowing (ie Vux) or energetic (Tony Frebourg). Maybe also something that most people know and would like - you don't want to scare people off by your choice of music! :)

As for music from the internet.... well there are a few free downloads you can get from band's websites and so on - or there are filesharing programs (I didn't say that :wink: ). Or buy a CD - you can listen to samples and stuff on www.amazon.com

Post by: Sharpes on January 25, 2005, 12:59:27 AM
RHCP all the way!
I've used The Doors, CCR (little mellow), RHCP, and Iron Maiden (particularly nice).
Other suggestions: The Who, The Clash. I'd stay away from slow stuff, depends on your style. I also like stuff with a constant beat (LondonCalling), makes it easier to synchronise with the music.

in that case you should not under any circumstances download any of the wide range of available tunes on PTP programs such as edonkey  :wink:

Post by: kamikace on January 25, 2005, 05:53:51 PM
when I play diabolo I use to listen some hard music, like system of a down, watcha, metal or punk, electrofunk, and when I want to play smoother, relaxing and improve my style I listen classic music (bach, wagner,twakowsky). I also heard  a lot of spanish bands (like ska-p! ti-tom, aren´t agree? :lol:  :wink:

Post by: nezzybaby on January 25, 2005, 11:22:36 PM
Ska always Ska!! reel big fish, sublime, less than jake, any cover by NOFX (your favourite songs with a ska beat i swear they've covered everything)

probably many more

cant fault the bob marley or iron maiden though

and for some truly insane diabolo sessions use www.dragonforce.com (herman is the fastest guitarist in the world i promise!)

but honestly anything can work you just have to adjust your style to the music, sometimes this is easier than other, i have problems with hardcore!

just anything you enjoy really

what do people find really hard to diabolo/juggle to? i think eva cassidy could be a problem
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: pottergs18 on January 27, 2005, 03:30:53 AM
IRON MAIDEN
also does ne one here listen to the maiden any more cause they are an older band
*start of short stupid story*
In one of my younger teachers saw me wearing an iron maiden t-shirt and he said i was a bit of a blast from the past lol
*end short story*
also  whats ur fav. cd. for me its brave new world

that's right but not the type of ska that you mentioned. you're looking more at catch 22, parka kings, sublime (even though they arent ska), ska-p, gipsy kings and so on.

I always find that old school dance music like livin joy - dreamer get me in the perfect mood. also spanish guitar always works well for me.

Okay, since watching a few vids around here I have kind of taken to listening to my mp3 when diabolo-ing... oddly I have found it much easier to make it look smooth and fluid when I have a rhythm to follow (despite having a lot of natural rhythm anyhow)...

Has anyone else found this? Am I just totally strange?

I really like to play 1 diabolo when a nice tune pops on. Makes me push and work harder, and try to move more than I would normally do.

Alot of backing music to promo videos and performances benefit grateful from some powerful orchestral music.  As was said, The Matrix soundtrack does have alot of good stuff in there and also the Animatrix too.  
Going through my video collection, alot of the early movies I downloaded like Jason Garfield's Promo, Norbi's Durham Rings and the Diabology trailer have strong orchestral music with well timed moves (I think the diabology freestyle section with the music from Battle Royale (can't remember the name) was particularly good, maybe the killing had something to do with it.)

Diabolo, juggling in general - good with music, and drinks, and others

Im glad the subject of music has come up. I totally agree that it is so much easier and better to diabolize to music.
There is almost a completely seperate musical genre just for diabolo!!!
Here are some of my fav music to listen to while diaboloing:

Mr Scruff - Keeping it unreal
              - Trouser Jazz
Leftfield - Leftism
            - Rhythm & Stealth
Aim - Cold Water Music
LTJ Bukem - Progression Sessions
                 - Earth vol 1 & 2
Ozric Tentacles - Any
Billy Cobham (jazz drumming legend)

To name but a few, i love making compilations to diabolize to so if any of you have any bands or trakcs that you want to recommend, please do!

Also if there is anyone in the hertfordhsire area who wants to get together with a group of diabolists for trick swapping, practice sessions, tutorials and workshops. send an email to diabolize@gmail.com

theres a couple of decks set up in my house, and whilst dance music isn't really my thing a DJ friend of mine (club level) often plays some sets that are great to play about with 2 diabolos  to when i'm 'in the mood' ;)

Theres a whole  list of peoples favourite music in the other music thread (http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=96) so I will avoid going down that route but instead I will mention some of the tunes that have come up in videos here that have caught my ear
Us3 - flip cantaloupe: Martijns routine
Manu Chau - Bongo Bong : Yuffis clip (active sun motion)
Magic Carpet Ride (crystal method mix): mattf's videos (not just because I'm in it
Sean and JGherkin have a good ear for the music in there vids as well (and  you Norbi)

finally two tracks I have performed to and keep in my juggling bag (though I'm allways on the look for new music) are

Primal Scream- Loaded . The bit of talking to get up to speed then a nice beat.
The Cat Empire - Hello. Hip hop jazz type thing, It changes halfway through which is nice for a change from 1 to 2, a DJ mate lengthened this track for me, very handy)

I have a video that has an incredible soundtrack to it, and I want to separate the sound into an mp3 file.  Does anyone know how to do that?  Thanks a ton!

Use software called VirtualDub (search google, you'll surely find it soon) and then it's easy... If you have some questions contact me on ICQ... or by personal message...

My top ten juggling/diabolo songs at this moment
Rattattat - 17 years
Interpol - Obsticle 2
!!! (Chick Chik Chk) - Intesify
Modest Mouse - Doin the ****roach
Teh Pixies - I Bleed
Pavement - Cut Your Hair
Beck - Devil's Haircut
Ozma - Korbeneki
Death Cab for Cutie - Fake Frowns
Dangermouse - Dirt of Your Shoulder


Pop rap gets you pumped regardless of quality.  You may hate rap, you may hate some rap.  Listen to really popular (and usually really bad) rap, you will be pumped and ready to juggle.

Don't know how 'good' these are to diabolo to as I'll usually listen to just about anything (and more often than not it's usually old) but here's what seems to be playing most when I practice that hasn't been mentioned above:

Hello Hammerheads - Caribou (aka. Dan Snaith/Manitoba)
Window Licker - Aphex Twin
Rememberance - Delerium
Hide U (instrumental) - Kosheen
Breathe - Télépopmusik
James Brown Is Dead - LA Style
Black Betty - Spiderbait
Hill Stomp - Robert Belfour

And as of this morning: Verbal - Amon Tobin

reggae! lovely rhythm and very flowy, ideal for performing too (maybe not so much for quick, flashy tricks like genocide combinations though). I've been listening to 'dub side of the moon', a reggae cover of dark side of the moon by Pink Floyd. It was sooo good to diabolo to, I may have to bust it out in a vid. Sublime is nice to diabolo to as well, still along the reggae path but mainly ska/soul which also makes it good to diabolo to. Jumpy music like ska can make a video seem much more fun to the viewer in my view too, a good example is in 'un con's' new video only recently posted. The soundtrack makes the video have a really good feel about it  :wink:

Caribou is amazing juggling music!  Bees is my fav song.

I've been juggling to the music off of the sites of Trash and Luke Burrage lately.  There's some good/intersting stuff on both.

OK, I'm a self-confessed fascist when it comes to music. Please stop saying Ska. It's pop with trumpets. Intelligent dance music would be the best choice to make for a performance methinks, along the lines of Fatboy, Moby or Chemical Brothers. Maybe something with a bit more bite to it for practice at home, like Prodigy.

I listen to iron maiden too, love it. Went to a concert of them about 2 months ago but oh well.

Good diabolo music for me is:
Dream Theatre - erotomania
Iron maiden - alot of songs ;p
Clawfinger - biggest and the best (good for my ego  :P)
R Kelly - Worlds greatest ( so is this song  8) )
Celldweller - Unlikely
Papa roach
Powerman5000
within temptation - Ice queen
Green day - holiday
Guns 'n Roses - November Rain &nd Paradice City
Prodigy - almost all songs of them

Plaid, Boards of Canada, Bjork, Fourtet for smoothy style stuff
Any descent electro tune around 120 bpm does well too
for 2D and 3D I suppose faster stuff might do (i.e some faster banging techno), but I am not even managing a proper 2D shuffle so...
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?

Hmm, good call on Fourtet and Boards of Canada.  Have you heard M83?  They have the same sort of thing going on.  Not quite as good as Rattattat or Out Hud in the electronic zone in my opinion, but really good listening.

Haven't heard of them but will check it out.

By the way, I've got a nice tune I would like to use, however the version I have is in the middle of a mix wich makes things complicated (I don't fancy neither the tune b4 nor the one after). The tune is called "Bass addiction" by Slam. If anybody has it "on its own" please let me know.

Before I start, I know this has nothing to do with anything diabolo related but trust me you will love this. I heard about this from a friend who stumbled across this and I'm addicted. It's an online music database which can make your perfect playlist according to what you already like.

So... if for example you like Bob Marley it will play a Bob Marley track and then continuously play various artists all from that style and era of reggae!

It's completely free, I've been using it for 3 days now and I'm hooked. It works based on what previous users have chosen and makes decisions based on their preferances :wink: Give it a go, and let me know what you think.

its shame as it probably will but to be honest i think it could be an amazing source for people trying to find music for their diabolo videos as you can discover artists you never previously knew about. It would be nice if we could have an 'off topic' section for the forum so i dont feel guilty about putting something off topic in the diabolo forum. I wouldnt have done so initially but i felt everyone could benefit from this as it's a great resource. feel free to do your thing mods  :cry:

I prefer classical music, like the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, or music from StarWars or Pirates. On the other hand I listen to Daft Punk, Air, Moby, Hooverphonic and such artists. Most of the time there is no music, because I diabolo in the livingroom, and then my roommates have to listen to my music.
No metal for me during diabolo, it is just not the right rythm. I prefer Vux' style over Tony's, so that explains why I don't want it with more then 180 beats per minute. Normally I do listen to the more extreme side of christian metal :).

Well, i got bored reading this thread at page 2 but hey, here's what i diabolo to (and just listen to in general :P):

Dragonforce - super fast, it depends on your mood (hyper) if you're gonna diabolo to it (illegal drugs would probably have this effect to, but i've not tried  :wink: )

Slipknot's more melodic stuff - nice and relaxed minor key stuff is good for just chilling with the diabolo

Mike Oldfield - Everything from his Tubular Bells (exorcist theme tune for those of you who don't already know) to Heaven's Open and Moonlight Shadow - great songs anyway.  They're musically amazing and his instrumental stuff is nice for routines if you know it - quite a lot of it is reasonably repetitive but with nice little intricacies (sp?)

Trivium - fast again...

Metallica - nothing needs to be said  :wink:

Nightwish!  -  I love this band for diaboloing as i just love that blend of symphonic metal as it has such a range of tempos for playing around.  Also a bit similar to metallica's s&m (symphony & metallica, not the kinky  stuff with whips) album which is also good

Daft Punk - Just nice techno sound

Any instrumental stuff as some daft punk songs, or maybe Zero 7 for their meodern electronica sound which is just so relaxing, or perhaps Tweaker's Doom 3 Theme - that bass bit is just awesome and gives it that solid feel to diabolo too.

Well i should be working, i've managed to ramble on about bands i like enough :D.  Go listen to Dragonforce everybody ^_^!

Happy diaboloing
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: fredo on February 28, 2006, 11:11:56 PM
The DOORS are great (e.g. Riders on the storm or break on through)

Mike Oldfield has opne of the best songs ever made: SHADOW ON THE WALL. It's great for diaboloing
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: john_s on February 28, 2006, 11:24:04 PM
for me, i think instrumental music is best to juggle / diabolo to... especially electronica, or something with a steady beat to keep you going. i don't like to juggle to songs that are too repetitive or use the same componenets all the way through (like punk albums for example), as i prefer it when the style, tempo or mood changes and you can adjust your playing style dependent on that. i used to know a juggler who would only practice to "leftism" by leftfield as for him it provided the perfect background accompaniment.

other than that, i find that i can't practice at all to silence as it seems so empty. but then again i am a sound engineer so it seems weird for me not to listen to music most of the time...

sabaton are good i think, entertaining riffs to play on guitar but i've never actually heard their songs  :oops: ...

The pace seems like it would be very good though for relaxed diabolo, and the hard beat would be nice to get in a rhythm

haha, diabolo has actually changed my taste in music drastically. before i was into black/death

i.e deicide, mayhem, emperor, obituary, autopsy, things like that.

now if im diaboloing il listen to lighter music, mainly dream theater, symphony x and the such. the timings r so fun to do to diabolo.
 
but then when im just sitting around or somthing il be listning to screamo or DnB metal or somthing really odd. i spose im just wierd.
Title: Re: Good Diabolo music?
Post by: Alex! on January 08, 2007, 06:53:14 PM
The best music for Diabolo is Funk. Im not into it that much but a good bit of James Brown (R.I.P) is great to Diabolo with. Also Reggae like Bob Marley always works.

crazy frog and napalm death! I'm baffled. I'm quite traditional with my choices, DJ shadow, instrumental stuff, oldschool hiphop.

i often steel other peoples choices, for example ill put on imperfectcirquel or a circus planet video and just diabolo to that, gives me lots of tempo changes and means i don't have to mess around changing tracks half way threw a run, I recommend it if you haven't tried it.

My club usually stick on a Cat Empire CD, great stuff.

Personally, I will listen to anything from Cat Stevens to Trivium when juggling/diaboloing. Some of the rarer Linkin Park stuff and something with a beat by Muse never goes amiss eother. My specific favourites are:
Linkin Park - Session
Muse - New Born
Atreyu - The Crimson
Muse - Take A Bow
Muse - Map Of The Problematique
Trivium - The Decieved
DJ Shadow - Organ Donor

...etc...etc...

I think it´s a pretty goog song for me for DiAboliZin´

Can anybody help?

Here ´s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTDcBf8uXEE

If it doesn´t work go to youtube an search there for "Freestyle Dance Competition" (from Kollaboration 2005).

Post by: Diabolo88 on February 18, 2007, 12:02:03 PM
I started with punk, then punkrock, then electronic and techno as well as some breakbeats. As long as the beat fits, any music is OK. If you want to practice to get faster or if you´re already practicing fast tricks, I guess you should pick fast music. If you have a slow style I think it´s the opposite.

Sometimes music with a lot of lyrics or lyrics in foreign language helps my Diabolo. That way, I focus more on the music than the Diabolo and my hands figure out for themselves what they´re supposed to be doing. Perfect when you´re learning foreign languages is bringing a lesson on CD and listening to it. Or...sing for yourself. If you can sing while doing your tricks, they´re reasonably solid.

I dont think I could get into the pace of the pendulum stuff, and the track with a really long spoken intro, no way. simmilar to when your clubbing, what the hell do you do with yourself when a spoken vocal comes on (apart from shuffle of the dancefloor and get a drink)

Yeah, Pendulum rocks the bollocks! 'Slam' and 'Fasten Your Seatbelt' are my favourites of the album. Perhaps not the best music for juggling, but it totally rocks. And I have to say that the prelude before Slam is really cool :)

Shpongle is more in the psybient, psychill genre Peter, and yeah they are one of the best :D

I dont believe The Offspring is heavy for diabolo.. maybe for learning they are indeed, but for combos, their songs can fit easily.

I normally listen some of the following while jugling
System Of A Down - Chic 'N' Stu and **** the System
The Strokes - Juicebox
Red hot Chili Peppers - Most of their songs fits(Especially from Greatest Hits)
Rage Against the Machine - Bulls on Parade, Wake Up, Guerilla Radio, Killing in The Name(ok this is too heavy and political for most people)
My Chemical Romance - Welcome to the Black parade
Metallica - Enter Sandman, Sad But True, the Call of Ktulu
Anathema -  Fragile Dreams
AC/DC - Thunderstruck

Then there are bands like Iced Earth, Black Sabbath, Rhaposdy etc.., but i dont think that ppl that dont listen them from before would appreciate them for diabolo performing :P
I also like the songs used on Dropitlikeitshot vid

You sir are bang on there. The Cat Empire SHOULD be for everyone. Fun, fast, funny, and amasing (key next to x doesnt work) live. have a quick look at their myspace if you;re a fun of upbeat funky latin ska/reggae.  I love em almost as much as Newton Faulkner who unfortunately doesnt suit a diabolo routine but is an almightly songwriter. 

More on topic, Im still waiting for someone to use some classic dub like king tubby, lee perry or augustus pablo in a video.  with so much consistent beat i cant see why it isnt more popular.  maybe its time to break the trend  ;)

I seem to like techno/electronic DDR songs a lot, like Where's my Samurai (Butterfly) by Smile.DK, Bumble Bee, and Xepher.

You guys might not necessarily like the videos, but it's about the songs ;).
And I was just looking for something on youtube that had good audio quality :D

Butterfly:

Although I think Xepher gets too fast, so I don't use it that often while diaboloing.

Ska - everybody loves ska.

Yea, a good bitta ska, reggae or deep dub! Diaboloing to music is great if you can get that groove so I advise to play to anything & get better doing things at different speeds (to different riddums) to get better control. Thats why dubs good, slow & low! I find with faster music I get rushed & fumble a lot more.

 Also, if you wanna bit of fun, try diaboloing along to Alamaailman Vasarat, Cardiacs or something crazy with time changes & such, I may try a live vidio along to Blacalicious "Alphabet Arobics one day for all you hip hoppers!

Anyway, Im off to diabolo!

Yeh I've seen that mob, fun good band. Burnie sounds like Darwin, any half decent band to come through are treated like gods (because its small and kind of rural), the music scene isn't that great up here.
some other good diab music:
Le Peuple De L'Herbe
Propellerheads
Shemozzle
Skatalites, Chemical Brothers, La Ruda Salska (some)
Depends on your mood so its hard to say.

I think that some of Linkin Park's songs go great with diaboloing but faster songs seem to demand a faster tempo and it can be hard to keep up with the rhythm. Even classical music sometimes works for me. There is just no comparison to practising to a little Mozart or Vivaldi.  8)

I believe that it can work if you match a slower song to a slower routine. Obviously, faster tricks don't coordinate well with slower songs. Although, I don't think I know of any fast paced classical pieces. :-\

And it isn't merely Panic at the Disco; it's Panic! at the Disco.  It doesn't even mean anything!  They have nothing to do with panicking OR discoing!   ::)

Anyway, this music question has taunted me for quite a while now, and I can't find that one perfect song to do my routine to, however, I have some options that I've been considering, so, here they are.  Maybe they'll suit your act more.

From fastest tempo, to slowest:

Riot on Broadway - The Living End (http://listen.grooveshark.com/song/Riot_On_Broadway/7757618)
This one is an Australian punk song, that's fast, but not annoyingly so, like most punk rock songs are.

My Friend John - The Fratellis (http://listen.grooveshark.com/song/My_Friend_John/10278641)
From their new album, Here We Stand, my favorite song of theirs, and most probably my new song for my next video.

Richard III - Supergrass (http://listen.grooveshark.com/song/Richard_III/7774574)
Another great uptempo diabolo song, but very unique and different

Electioneering - Radiohead (http://listen.grooveshark.com/song/Electioneering/6806)
I always diabolo to this song, as it's not too fast, not too slow, and is one of Radiohead's more upbeat songs.

Bodysnatchers - Radiohead (http://listen.grooveshark.com/song/Bodysnatchers/3892359)
From Radiohead's new In Rainbows album.

2+2=5 - Radiohead (http://listen.grooveshark.com/song/225_The_Lukewarm/7343385)
Possibly my favorite song ever.  I've been trying forever to get my routine to match this song.  It starts off slow and ominous, and then builds to a huge second half, which is best for all those fast 1D combos.  By the way, to truly experience the epicness of the second half of the song you have to get a direct digital copy, or buy their Hail to the Thief CD, the internet versions just don't cut it.  ;)

Pendulum are the best. Any of there songs are great to diabolo to as they are energetic and, well, awesome really.
@Darragh: Sound is just a vibration of particles. Therefore your diabolo would be able to feel the sound and who knows, might even be able to realise its being played music. Better just play it some anyway to be on the safe side.  :P

Muse works pretty great for me. Usually I juggle to some pretty heavy stuff like Dimmu Borgir, but the audience won't like it that much I think..
You could also try Arctic Monkeys!

But it's pretty personal, so just try some music out!

Which Cirque album are you talking about, because there are a LOT.  I know I have over 30 of their albums on my computer, alone (although some are publicly unreleased and/or out of print, and a lot have been ripped off of their DVDs or television performances). 

As for songs, they range from every kind of performance music you could imagine... from slow and artistic to fast paced and rockin'!   ;)

I like a lot of different music...
but some days ago I've discovered some really good bands to listen when I'm training:

red snapper and skalpel..
it looks like the sound of xploding plastix (first song of collab 06)
red snapper is really good!
me and my friend (GuiZ) are using two song of this band mixed together for our next diabolo performance (April 4 - in Brazil.. anyone taking a walk here??  :-D)

I also like to listen when I'm training:
- blink 182
- a lot of reggae music (like bob Marley, S.O.J.A, nd some Brazilian bands)
- reel big fish
- RHCP (not too much, but works good sometimes)

and some quickly things like the offspring and limp biskit..

it depends on what I'm on the mod for... sometimes I have good trainings listening to jack johnson...and sometimes I need a little fast music to make me work...

well...that's it..

[sorry for the english mistakes ;)]

At the moment I have a hip hop flash. But just the instrumental ones like Wax Tailor and some stuff like that. Sometimes is kicking and the Tune of course nice track. That beat is very hard and I nailed an integral and the feeling was just WOW ;)
Wax Tailor=phat ;)

i like to listen to weird al yankovic (parody master) "Weird Al" Yankovic - Whatever You Like (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRVi0paZlfI#lq-lq2-hq)
quite good because some songs are fast and some slow so it can help you experiment with new tricks

I would say something quick but slow in parts. Muse perhaps? Pendulum and Daft Punk do have that diabolo-ey feeling to them. Arctic Monkeys or The Fratellis even??

i recently found math (track name) in obsolete? (CD name) by pixelh8 (artist) when looking for 8-bit
music ( classic computer game type songs) it has a very good beat and it is simple so the audience (if there is any) concentrate on the diabolo more than the music. But it is quite short so i lengthend it on a music editing program (Garage Band on mac)

If you enjoy pixelh8's stuff and 8-bit music, check out 8bitpeoples (http://www.8bitpeoples.com/), an internet label specialising in chiptune music. Not my usual sort of thing but I quite enjoy "Sting Operation" by Anamanaguchi (http://www.8bitpeoples.com/discography/by/anamanaguchi).

Or you could try making your own 8-bit sounds using Famitracker (http://famitracker.shoodot.net/), a tracking program that produces music on an emulated NES sound chip.

"lighting" (cant actually remember what its called, but something like that) off of the Blade 2 soundtrack.

"it's like that" Run DMC
"renegade master"

there's a few to try out, i have performed to all of them and would do again. Hope that helps

The Prodigy seem to help me get the best out of my diabolo sessions and also a bit of Pendulum which is slightly more chilled.

I find a good fast paced beat sends me into freestyle mode.
