Today’s incredible talk contains insane beats, bizarre sound effects, voiceovers in the style of multiple eras and instruments like the didgeridoo, sitar, trumpet and double bass. And yet, only one person is on the stage. As beatboxer Tom Thum puts it in this talk from TEDxSydney, “All the sounds you just heard were made entirely using just my voice.”
In this talk, Thum takes you around the world, sonically, and shows how he makes some of his most thrilling sounds. It’s a must-watch for a Friday afternoon.
