"Love Songs" Performed by M0co and Beemo from BeemoBot! on Vimeo.
Again, sometimes I forget how lucky I am. In six short years, I've had the chance to share the stage with world class riggers and rope bottoms and last May was no exception. Opening for Hajime Kinoko and Ika-chan was really one of the highest moments for Moco and myself. Kinoko-san may be one of the biggest influences when it comes to Moco's rope style, even if it's not really evident. We spent the earliest years of our relationship watching low-res videos of his Cyber Rope performances, pausing and replaying various transitions in hopes to unraveling some of the magic that is Kinoko's stage presence.
This performance was a bit different for us: everyone's used to the very show-boat-y, larger than life attitude that Moco and I bring. I think it may have caught a couple people off guard, but I think this may be one of our most beautiful shows to date. In the very least, it felt to be the most intimate and, for me, that's what rope is really about.
Many thanks to Rigger Jay for recording and editing this performance for us.
