Beardyman :

The award winning and multi talented Beardyman has won fans ranging from Fatboy Slim to Herbie Hancock and Jack Black to Matt Groening. He won the UK Beatbox championships consecutively until nobody else dared to enter. Mike Judge was so impressed with his vocal abilities he personally insisted that Beardyman lent his voice to several characters on the latest series of Beavis & Butthead. He was granted his own show at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival, appeared on Conan, stole the show at the BBC Comedy Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, but rocking dance floors is Beardyman's ultimate passion…

To this end he has improvised his way around the globe smashing dance floors and festival stages using an ever-growing cluster of DJ effect-units and esoteric soundprocessing boxes, influencing scores of beatboxers and changing the face of what people thought possible with live improvised music and performance. But this was not good enough for Beardyman. For the past year he has been working with feverish perseverance, with some of the best minds in the world of music technology on one of the most ambitious and technically demanding projects ever undertaken by a performing artist. The culmination of years of research, design and development, the Beardytron5000mkII has been a closely guarded secret until now, and with good reason. It is insane. It can do things literally nothing else can, and with this new system, Beardyman is finally free from the trappings of other peoples technology. To hear what he can do now has to be experienced to be believed.
