Tilman programmed an Android App for passing Siteswap generation. Features include finding all possible Siteswaps for a given period length and number of objects, easy filtering of zips, zaps and holds via check boxes, generation of local Siteswaps and calculation of start position and more!
Martin and me got a little crazy at the Super Juggling convention and are now planning to juggle and tape some patterns from Christian Kästner´s compatible siteswaps list. As far as we can, anyway. Here´s our first – an easy 4 club one to practise zaps and flips. And yes, that´s Martin at the guitar.
If you stay inside the vanilla restriction, you´ll get 4 handed siteswaps with hands throwing alternately. This means, a 4 handed ‘global’ siteswap sequence gives you the throws for right hand juggler 1, right hand juggler 2, left hand juggler 1, left hand juggler 2 and again. So, juggler 2 starts half a beat after juggler 1 and they never throw at the same time.
Different 4 handed siteswaps are compatible, meaning that juggler 1 can do a different pattern than juggler 2 – that´s especially great for juggling groups of mixed skills – better jugglers can pass a difficult pattern against an easy one. Christian Kästner compiled an online, searchable list of compatible 4 handed siteswaps.
