    Joshua Farris is keeping his Rachimanoff long program but getting a new short. No details on music for that one.


    a;'erlfnb;alerbae;lbna;erlknjb a he replied to my tweet. And he said thank you. And put a cute little smiley. I am so officially his fangirl now.

    Source is Joshua Farris' Twitter ( @joshDfarris ) :
    Thank you very much! I loved skating that program which is why I'm keeping it. I'm getting a new short and keeping my long.

    I've always liked his choreography. I'm excited to see what he'll come up with for Adam. I'd love it if Michael Seibert had a chance to choreograph for an ice dance team since that's his own genre.

    I haven't heard any news about Seibert in a long time. Anyone know what he's been up to?

    I googled him and came up with several Michael Seiberts: a German canoer, a voice-over artist, and a convicted killer. Not much on Michael Seibert, the figure skater.

    Haha, good to hear. The FS was a good vehicle for him and I'm looking forward to see what he can do with it with another season of mileage. Though I will miss that lovely SP of his! Any news regarding senior GP vs. JGP? I'm really curious as to what he and Jason will decide! If they are aiming for 2014, I would assume they'd be moving up, but you never know, especially with the rule changes and all.

    Michael Seibert & Judy Blumberg ice dancers.

    should be your search (about 33,000 hits)

    People have trouble spelling Michael's name (i before e...NOT in this case)

    After his competitive skating career ended, Seibert became a well-known choreographer. He has choreographed for Stars on Ice and was assistant choreographer for Carmen on Ice.
    He also did choreo for Battle of the Blades

    FYI, there are article and video links posted in the Michael Seibert thread started in the Trash Can: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83667

    New interview titled "Creating programs: Hugo Chouinard talks music": http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    The name Hugo Chouinard is well known among skaters, coaches and choreographers. The focus of his work is an integral and important part of figure skating: the music. Musical design is not just a job for Chouinard; it is a real passion, one through which he has completely devoted himself to the sport of figure skating.
    Chouinard was involved in Weaver/Poje's "Je Suis Malade" FD, Daisuke Takahashi's short program, Virtue/Moir's "Funny Face" FD, and Takahashi/Tran's "Concerto de Québec" FS, among other programs.

    It sounds like he is going to work with David Wilson again. In late March, Wilson choreographed a Senior FS to Samuel Barber's "Cello Concerto in A minor" for Timothy Koleto (6th in Junior Men at 2012 US Nationals), as reported in Sarah and Drew's Inside Edge blog dated 4/11/12.

    I wasn't game enough to ask about JGP/GP after he replied to the first one! I've asked him (today, so that I don't look like a creepy stalker ) about the SP music but I figure there's no point asking about the GP assignments since they come out on Monday anyway.

    Found this icenetwork article on Michael Seibert (http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news) that provides the answer to my question...

    When Michael Seibert's longtime friend and collaborator Sandra Bezic asked him to be part of season one of Battle of the Blades, he hadn't been on skates in four years. The five-time U.S. ice dance champion, three-time world bronze medalist and two-time Olympian (with Judy Blumberg) had switched his focus from choreography to interior design,
    I hope working with Adam will lead him back into more choreography for competitive skaters. Blumberg and Seibert was one of my favorite ice dance teams back in the day.

    Also, this one about starting his interior design career (http://www.interiordesign.net/articl...rt_Blooms.php#).

    Johnathan and David, why do I instantly get the feeling that the program is gonna be very authentic with sensuality? XD

    Adam Rippon tweeted:

    Just finished up the first long night of choreography on my new long program. Pretty cool working with Michael Seibert on this piece.
    Seibert designed costumes earlier in his career, including for him and Blumberg. There was a fluff piece about it during one of his competitions, I think on ABC.

    Thanks!

    One of things I like about Adam is that he keeps trying to find and adventure new style. Whether that style suits him or not does come into question, though

    Just posted the new Rippon article link in the US Men's news thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...12#post3576612
    Relevant FS music excerpt:
    [Choreographer Michael] Seibert came up with selections from Michael Giacchino's score, including "Life's Incredible Again" and "Saving Metroville."

    "Adam needs something more competitive, bigger; it's all sort of the same texture I felt was lacking," he said. "So I was all over musically, from [Joe] Satriani on down, and I happened to stumble on this.

    "I don't really want to use the [animated] movie title The Incredibles because we started with Mad Men, and then I found this piece of music, which is very jazz-age, a big horn section, very Don Draper-esque."
    ETA links to the 2 tracks cited in the article:
    "Life's Incredible Again": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ij8Js3hyp60
    "Saving Metroville": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJikHkZ55_s

    Daisuke is so cool. I can't think of another skater of his calibre whom consistently seeks out new choreographers, different types of music, and new ways to express himself. EVERY single year. He seems to be an artist who is curious, which the best kinds of artists are. Just what a cool guy.
