I will probably not get the next Equestria dreamscape posting up today, so I decided to start introducing my watchers to some of the characters that populate my sleep.
This is Move to the Music! They are an all female mouse band from my Angel and Knight Prime and A&K-2 dreamscapes. They may be in A&K-1 but if so they have not shown up on screen or been mentioned by anyone in those dreams.
The band released there first album in 2000. This is cover art for their debut album. Since mice are generally only about 8.25" tall it is almost impossible for them to play traditional musical instruments. Fortunately for their size most mice possess amazing lung capacity and have voices that generally much deeper than one might expect for such wee folk.
Just like bigums, a term mice and rats use to describe every other species, mice and rats have their own history and tradition of music. Until recently though their influence on the large music scene has been limited to songwriting and singing. Mouse and rat live performances have generally been limited to other wee folk or if performed for a larger bigum audience they have required bigums to play the larger instruments. Also until the mid point of the 20th century it has been very hard for bigums to easily enjoy mouse and rat performances live. Due to the radical differences in size between species.
What made Move to the Music! so amazing when they burst on to the scene was that they were the first all mouse act that combined and used for the first time the latest in electronic and computer technology to create their music. Along breakthroughs in video technology they have been able to reach out to a larger music market. I'll post more about how they actual make their music in future postings.
