The Singh Thing
July 12, 2014 6:08 AM   Subscribe

Jason Singh is a "beatboxer and vocal sculptor" who creates music using only multi-layered recordings of his voice. Watch him perform Tiberian Sun live at Music TechFest, using software to loop and mix samples of breath, beatboxing and vocal techniques.

Jason was the first Sound Art Resident at the V&A Museum. He was also commissioned by the National Trust to create Tweet Music, a vocal recreation of the UK's best-loved songbirds to celebrate the sounds of Spring.

Jason facilitates workshops for many different groups, including children - here he is giving a demonstration of his beatboxing skills to an impressed classroom.

Awesome! The tweet music is very cool, but I think I enjoyed the classroom demonstration the most--really interesting, and sounds like it was tons of fun.

What a great way to get the music in your head out into the world.
