Interactive beatbox - vocal sounds and patterns
A practical demonstration of how to create vocal sounds and patterns. Performing in a rap style with a constant underlying beat, the presenters provide a clear demonstration of beatbox. Using a 'copy cat' strategy pupils are invited to join in and make immediate responses imitating a bass drum, a hi hat, a snare drum and then a hum. The production of each sound is broken down into stages so pupils can hear and see how to produce these as accurately as possible. The three compositions, in a 4 time metre and graded in difficulty, are represented in graphic notation with symbols as they move across the screen. These progress from using steady beats to more complex syncopated rhythms.
