Any noise I can imagine: Beardyman at TED2013

Beardyman, né Darren Foreman, is a London-based beatboxer and inventor who has always been frustrated by the limitations of the human voice and body. After all, Beardyman’s instrument is his voice — and he only has one. No one, for example, can sing two notes at the same time. So naturally, Beardyman built a machine to deal with his problem: a real-time, live music production machine, which he is currently playing on stage. Can one man become all of Pink Floyd with just his voice? Yes. Yes he can.
