Thum Prints unites the unlikely duo of beatboxing and classical music
What do you get when you combine a world class vocal percussionist with the sheer brilliance of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra? A night to remember, that’s what.
In an unconventional Brisbane collaboration, global beatboxing sensation Tom Thum will team up with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) for the world premiere of Thum Prints at Brisbane Festival on Friday September 18. Composed by musical genius Gordon Hamilton, Thum Prints is an exhilarating composition that fuses beatboxing and classical music, and pushes sonic boundaries in a way that has never been done before.
Known as a beatboxing virtuoso the world over, Tom Thum has performed at as many festivals as you’ve had hot dinners, including Brisbane Festival in 2012, and has sold out shows from Berlin to New York. His 2013 TEDx video, The orchestra in my mouth, is the world’s most watched TEDx video, with almost 40 million views on YouTube. Flawlessly combining elements of classical and contemporary music, Thum Prints will be playing for one night only at QPAC’s Concert Hall.
