Voice Over Sydney Beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion primarily involving the art of mimicking drum machines using one’s mouth, lips, tongue, and voice. It may also involve vocal imitation of turntablism, and other musical instruments. Beatboxing today is connected with hip-hop culture, often referred to as “the fifth element” of hip-hop, although it is not limited to hip-hop music. The term “beatboxing” is sometimes used to refer to vocal percussion in general. Beatboxing can be used for beats and sound effects which are some of the things that can help you with at out Voice Over Sydney studio.
One famous example of beatboxing or more accurately in this case vocal sound effects was Michael Winslow in the film from the 80s Police Academy. Michael captured the imagination of an entire generation with his beatboxing and vocal sound effects. In our voice over sydney studio we have many software programs that can produce all of those special effects and more but it is much cooler coming from the mouth of a human being.

Voice over Sydney Modern beatboxing
The Internet has played a large part in the popularity of modern beatboxing. Alex Tew (aka A-Plus) started the first online community of beatboxers in 2000 under the banner of HUMANBEATBOX.COM. In 2001, Gavin Tyte, a member of this community created the world’s first tutorials and video tutorials on beatboxing. In 2003, the community held the world’s first Human Beatbox Convention in London featuring beatbox artists from all over the world.
