COLD SWEAT

The music in this percussion comedy is made by using gloves and body. 

Preferred are the snowgloves made from synthetic cloth to create the most sound. 
little storyline:

'A cold wind is blowing(use the optional wind-effect mp3).

Shivering players gradually walk on stage, defying the wind and cold, it's minus 30 degrees! 

Shivering, and blowing into their hands they slowly sit down on their chair.

After everyone has taken seat, player one swipes his gloves to warm his hands.

Everyone is surprised by the sound and the music starts..'
Audiences will love this percussive fun and studying this piece is fun-guarantied!
