Hello everyone,

I posted this topic because I am searching for some music for my dancing hank routine.
This routine combines the "ultimate dancing hank" and the "Impossible hank" by Sean Bogunia.
I have seen that Big Daddy Cool has posted a few topics about a some music that he thinks to be good ones for magical routines; so I have sent him a private message and he asked me a few questions, and I will post them here, so you can help me easly.

1.
Still not sure what you are looking for. What kind of character are you on stage?

I am Mysterious, and a little bit comic when I do the rest move, in which I give the illusion that the silk is pushing me to the side.

2. Are you causing the magic, watching the magic or is the magic happening to you?

The silk is doing the magic, not the magician.

3. What is the specific routine you what to put music to? What is the effect, and the desired reaction?

The routine is like the one Bogunia´s does, you may see it at http://www.magicsmith.com/ and under the products section please search the trick "ultimate dancing hank" and see the video clip.

4. Is the music to be scored or underscored?

Well, I want to enter a competition and I must have a routine with at least 6 minutes and I want a music to have 7 minutes or more.

Thanks a lot for your BIG help!

Jazz fusion

Also movie soundtracks/scores are a good place to look

It is very difficult to help because music is mostly a matter of opinion, and I'm sure there exists more than one piece that suits your performance.
A couple of years ago Wesley James published a collection of "music for magic" pieces, which I have then reorganized and published on my site (with permission). At the time I had also done the job of searching a MIDI file for most of the pieces in the list, so you can sample it in advance. I suspect some of the links are now dead though.
Anyway if you are interested my site address is right below, in my signature.

Check out goblin. They do the music for all the argento films and are instrumental. My zombie routine will probably use the song profondo ruso.
