1. What is beatboxing?
Beatboxing, according to Wikipedia, is a form of vocal percussion primarily involving the art of mimicking drum machines using one’s mouth, lips, tongue, and voice.
Beatboxing isn’t merely copying drums though — you can integrate melodies, even harmonies, using sounds like the siren, trumpet, whistles, and different kinds of bass. Over the last twenty years, beatboxing has evolved into an instrument, a genre, a lifestyle all of its own.
Is it an imitation, or an instrument, or an experiment? Is it people saying boots-and-cats and spitting? It’s all of those, and more. At its core, beatboxing is music; and anything beyond that is dictated by the individual artist making the music.
