The Human Radio – In-Person Performance
The Human Radio will take you on a journey of sound exploring anatomy, geography and culture. Let’s investigate the brilliant design of our auditory and aural systems that allow us to create and listen to music. Through body percussion and beatboxing, Rup demonstrates and teaches how the human form is indeed a musical instrument. With a mix of hip hop, blues and bhangra, Rup’s show tunes into the themes of home, identity, culture, justice, dignity and celebration.
Raise your V.O.I.C.E (Vocalize Our Inner Creative Expressions) – In-Person Workshop
Students will explore vocal percussion and the art of live looping to co-create original music that utilizes the voice of each participant. Live looping is a new way to create music; it is the recording, layering and playback of music created in real time using loop station technology. Rup will teach the basics of beatboxing as well as Indian vocal percussion to give audiences an understanding of what he likes to call the “tongue drum”. The group will create improvised, spontaneous compositions where listening to each other and utilizing each others’ differences is the key.
