They are similar, but the juxtaposition turns into a soupy mess.

Ah, too bad.  I felt sure they would both spiral around each other in a ballet where they melodically meld beautifully at certain points... like two clocks ticking 'almost' in tandem.

I think some clever editing via cut and paste could produce an interesting result

That would be devilishly delightful.

Thanks for that reference. Anybody ever refer to the LOC dance stuff?

Yes, that’s a nice site. By the way it sounds like your tempo was pretty close to that of the video. Did you ever run into Richard Powers? I believe he used to live in Cincinnati, Al might have met him.

No, I never did. Who is he?

He’s a dance historian and teacher, that video is one of his.  http://richardpowers.com/
