The Benefit Of Rave Videos

May 26, 2008
Electronic dance music videos, more popularly known as rave music videos are one of the most entertaining, exciting, and visually expansive music video forms being made today. The reason the videos are so incredible is that they have no limit to their possibilities. Everything about them is very experimental, the music and visuals must fit together to make these videos great. Many people have understandably formed obsessions with these videos and the music that fuels them.

Before you can truly hope to understand the visual factors of rave music videos you must first learn of the music. Rave music is classified as a combination of fast break beat and hardcore techno music. Many forms of trance music are contained in rave music. Loops and synthesizers are used to give the music its unique style. The Prodigy, Utah Saints and The Shamen were some of the first musical groups to be considered rave music makers.

The moment a groups songs are played a rave it is generally considered rave music. A rave is an enormous party that can last for days. Hard pumping music and usually a high amount of drug use are brought together to form these celebrations.

Ecstasy has been made famous as the drug of choice at raves. Rave goers prefer the pill because of its ability to expand upon hard pounding music, bright lighting, and objects in motion. Rave videos usually involve a lot of color and movement for this purpose. Rave participants state that the drug brings upon a pleasurable sensation and makes the music much more fluid and clear.

Rave music videos put a big importance of dancing, and the most popular form of dancing in the rave scene is liquid dancing. The name is based of the motions of the dancer as they perform. Usually only arms and legs are used while dancing, but the more advanced dancers can put their entire body to use while performing.

Liquid dancing is formed from the style of eighties b-boy style break dancing. There are several different techniques and styles that can be applied to a dancer's personal style. Hand flow, rails, waves, traces, threads, contours, splits, and builds are all techniques that can be put in place in order to fully master the art of liquid dancing.

Hand flow is easily the most basic and most simple to be grasped by an amateur. There is no specific way to perform this technique. As long as the dancer is able to make their movements look liquid their form will be acceptable. Waves are the most popularly imitated forms of liquid dancing. The dancer's main goal is to move the body as if a wave was passing through it, alternating tensing the muscles and then relaxing.

Rave music videos are quickly gaining popularity because of their ability to balance motion, sound, and visuals. The videos are made to put every one of your senses to use, enabling their audience to fully enjoy the videos.
