MUSIC IS SO IMPORTANT!
Music is critical to the Climber’s experience
Use music to create a journey
Music should include peaks and valleys
Shouldn’t be all the same style songs
Song 3 and last song are the most important, and are the HYPE songs
Everything in between should be feeling of emotional and physical connection.
Physical - connect and make sure they stay present
Mental - emotional connections; memories
Tempo vs Rhythm
Tempo - the beat that stays the same
Rhythm - always changing
The down beat is on the 1
Finding the fast beat vs the slow beat
