Flute Beatboxing a.k.a Tim Barsky
I'm going to try and pick up some BeatBoxing with the help of these stunning vid-toots by TyTe, E-in-C of the Human BeatBoxing website. I'm also quite impressed by Mr. Tim Barsky, or whatever I have seen of his flute-beatboxing (mp3 of solo) on his website. He also appears to have many similarities with my own show. Except that I use a laptop instead of a flute. It's not easy from the sound of it:
You regulate 3 streams of air- one through your mouth, and one through each nostril. By applying different airflows through the nose, mouth, nasal resonators, and chest cavity, it is possible to create an illusion of tandem instruments- a “bass” line that is separate from the “drum” or the “high-hat”, and vice versa (This is basic beatboxing- the innovation comes in integrating the flute). And you have to do it while maintaining proper embochure and air pressure for the flute.
