My late grandfather once told me, "There's an ass for every seat." Not until today did I truly know what he meant.
Just when you thought Miley had ruined twerking for everyone, the folks at AIAIAI headphones raise the bar for rump awareness with their latest project, "Real Booty Music." Music producer Branko (from Buraka Som Sistema) attached sensors to Twerk Queen Louise's derrière and harnessed the movement of—well, butt cheeks—to create new music.
It really is something to behold.
The company says: "The overall idea behind the project was to provide AIAIAI headphone users and other music lovers with new music. Moreover, we wanted to do this in an unusual way, which brought about music made by the booty—for the booty. The project explores the rich heritage of bass-driven club culture, where dancing and booty shaking are integral elements. We want to see if it's possible to change the perception of twerking through placing it in a technology-driven, creative context and letting the dance 'do the talking.' "
