To had led a movement , an idea, that urban music from the mouth can be theatrical , artistic, beautiful and and have value has been worth the decade that I hav...e put in. Yes people 10 years . And look at the skills displayed by the guys onstage. My friend and mentor Liz Moreton said that I should be part of this - I just wanted to change the world by fusing hip hop spoken word theatre and politics at the time. Took a while to hone pure beatbox with song writing and musicality to develop a particular practice, but myself and the BAC have done this and continue to develop new ways of presenting and enjoying vocal music.
I have had to privilege to work alongside the most amazing beatboxers, the best in the world actually, and also theatre practitioners and directors Myself and @monique_shenaz_duchen just wanted to change the world of other people like us. People with passion for music and telling stories .
We joined with Shlo Mo Jes and MC Zani to start The Academy Many Saturday mornings of beatbox and 🏓 and I have stopped since then! I just wanted everyone the opportunity to create and tell stories WHATEVER their background. We don’t get to choose our backgrounds, but we do choose our lives and what we do. We have had council estate kids such as myself plus private school kids who I equally have adored. Music in its purist form, being performed live, is the most abstract. It connects in the most spiritual way, this is why the Academy has been for everyone and connected at many different levels. Again it has been a PRIVILEGE in the last ten years to have led the group. In that time I have become a qualified teacher, gained a masters degree in performance and become a father to 1000 beatboxers worldwide lol. Props to the guys in this video shutting it down- PLUS shouts to all the people past who have contributed so much music and sound to our hearts and souls I could say so much more and go on ....We are coming with a THREE WEEK RUN at the BATTERSEA ARTS CENTRE THIS YEAR IN MARCH before a nationwide tour.. #vocalmusic #beatboxing #rODIUM #Livemusic #instruments #Bacbeatacademy #Acoustic #Songwriter #UKMUSIC #soufLondon #rODIUMRecords
