Be a beatbox

The Dana Centre is the Science Museum’s stylish adults-only bar and café dedicated to discussing contemporary science, medicine, technology and the environment.

Be a beatbox will explore the acoustics of vocal anatomy with live performances from renowned beatboxers. Participants will also have a chance to become a ‘human beatbox’ in a workshop based event. The event will investigate how beat boxers’ amazing mimicry of what sounds like ‘non-human’ percussion technology is achieved by manipulating air with ‘human’ or ‘natural’ voice structures (tongue, teeth and palates). Finally, ultrasound footage of the inside of the mouth of someone beatboxing will be projected onto the large screens in the café. In conjunction with BBC Radio 1Xtra.
