Beatbox Brilliance: Tom Thum At TEDxSydney

Tom Thum: Armed with just a microphone, Thum pushes the limits of the human voice to create incredible soundtracks of impossible beats and phenomenal sounds, with scratched vinyl, the Michael Jackson back-catalogue, the didgeridoo and an entire fifties jazz band amongst his vocal repertoire.” (YouTube)

People who can beatbox well have an incredible talent. It’s amazing to hear what sounds they can produce using just their mouth. Tom Thum is one such amazing beatboxer, as demonstrated in his TEDxSydney appearance. Using effects equipment dramatically enhances what he does (similar to Dub FX).

I particularly like the jazz ensemble at the end. Onwards!
