Tim Barsky also does some fine flute beatboxing. Less Mario, more awesome.

He's a member of the Vowel Movement, which also includes previously mentioned beatboxer Kid Beyond

Though I can't find any video online, the band Moqita also includes flute beatboxing.

Possibly. For me, trombone man is in the running as well.

That was pretty damn cool. Just imagine it combined with live action, though...

It's really amazing how good of a composer Shigeru Miyamoto actually is (I'm assuming he composed the music) seeing people perform it is really impressive, and it's cool to think that his melodies are probably as recognizable as Bach's or Mozart's or anyone else's.

And in case you need your beats in recipe form...

The fluteboxing from the main link? Great.

That kitchen thing? Greater.

Actually, Koji Kondo is the musical genius behind the mario brothers music, as well as the Legend of Zelda series, Starfox, Smash Bros., etc.

How can you have a post with flute players and have no Rahsaan Roland Kirk? He's the master.

Well, that was not what I was expecting, and yet it was.

All those words, together, didn't make any sense. It took something special—behind them, that video—OH!—for me to really dig it. Bless you, Awesome, for ye are many-formed.

If I wasn't so tired from 6 hours of night-out-on-town, I'd totally squeal like a little boygirl. Amusing and adorable and yet also mad skillz.

I feel a need to mention CR Avery. Along with Kid Beyond, he's one of the guys who've taken beatboxing to the weird level it's at today.

Try beatboxing, playing harmonica, and reciting poetry all at once. And being one person.

Great post, by the way.

That's freaking amazing. And I agree, Beardyman deserves his own post.

The only thing simultaneously cooler and dorkier than the mario/beatbox/flute guy is this!! Behold the power of Jazz Flute!!

HOLY CARP. I must get my flute out of retirement. RIGHT. NOW.

It's a three hour drive away. Is that too much for Mario beatboxing? HELLZ NO.

If it makes ya feel better, Beardyman just got his own Myspace bulletin.

Yeah, I'm on Myspace. How else am I gonna meet high school girls??

They keep chasing me off the playground...

To all beatboxers: If your beat isn't steady, you are simply wasting everyone's life for a while.

roll truck roll already said it but I'm gonna second sum CR Avery.
