Sattya will be hosting a beatboxing workshop by beatboxer Nishant Gauchan.
Nishant Gauchan started learning to beatbox on his own in 2008, getting inspiration from the likes of Doug E. Fresh.
Beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion. Beatboxing is defined as the art of producing drum beats, rhythm, and musical sounds using one’s mouth, lips, tongue, voice, nasal passage and throat. The content of beatboxing centers around a set of sounds that are imitative of specific drum-set sounds. The three core sounds are considered to be the bass drum, the snare drum, the freestanding drum that can be played with snares on or off, and the closed hi-hat cymbal.
Each instrument is linked to one or more vocalizations. The kick drum is represented as /b/. The closed hi-hat as /t/ and the open hi hat as /ts/, and the snare drum alternatively as /pf/, /psh/ or /ps/. By combining these sounds in patterns and repeating the patterns steadily one can imitate a basic drum-set groove.
