Beatbox brilliance | Tom Thum | TEDxSydney

Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel:

Tom Thum: Armed with just a microphone, Thum pushes the limits of the human voice to create incredible soundtracks of impossible beats and phenomenal sounds, with scratched vinyl, the Michael Jackson back-catalogue, the didgeridoo and an entire fifties jazz band amongst his vocal repertoire.

You can follow Tom on FaceBook (TomThummer) and Twitter (@tomthummer)

Quoting from ABC's Triple J Unearthed website:

TOM THUM, THE VERSATILE VOICEBOX 'Tom Thum appears to have swallowed an entire orchestra and several backing singers' The Guardian (UK)

'There are not enough superlatives to describe the wonder of this beatboxing virtuoso - I am still trying to figure out how he got those sounds out of his mouth' The Daily Telegraph (UK)
'The mic master seems to have an orchestra living in his throat: trumpet blasts, guitar strums and samples from classic songs including Michael Jackson's Billie Jean effortlessly spout from his mouth' Time Out, NY

These are apt quotes to describe the performance of one of Australia's most prominent and respected beatboxers and serial pests. Only in his mid-twenties Tom Thum has achieved and experienced more than most artists could hope to achieve in a lifetime. From winning the team battles (alongside Joel Turner) in the World Beatbox Championships in 2005, to fulfilling every artists dream and performing on Broadway in New York with the Tom Tom Crew, Tom has seen his fair share of accolades and well and truly paid his dues. Raised by the small but accommodating Brisbane hip hop scene, Tom started out as a graffiti writer and a Bboy but slowly rose to recognition through his ability to produce unhuman sounds and his natural knack for performing and weaselling his way on stage...

Although the stage seems the ideal habitat for Tom he is also no stranger to community and has been helping the scene improve through conducting a plethora of workshops in many places that usually wouldn't have access to such knowledge and skill. Tom has travelled from the very top of Australia teaching in the Indigenous communities of Mornington and Thursday Islands all the way to the very bottom with a series of workshops in Tasmania and Adelaide.

He has also spent considerable time teaching on Palm Island and in Charleville and many other places that would otherwise be Starved for education about proper hip hop and the positive message that music preaches.

As Tom's experience within the music industry expands, he plans to push the limits of the human voice as far as inhumanly possible. Enrolling the help of numerous loop stations, Tom has been conducting DJ sets using only his voice and nothing else, propelling crowds across the country into a frenzy of jaw-dropping disbelief, as he re-creates and remixes classic joints and jams from all eras and genres. At present Tom is working on an album ranging across many different generes and features and hopes to have it finished by early 2012. You might see him on a stage at a festival looping up a storm or supporting anyone from the Hilltop Hoods to Blue King Brown, or you might catch him annoying the hell out of commuters on public transport. Either way, you will notice him soon enough. Keep an ear out for Tom Thum.

A little vocal scratch tutorial. If you guys have any questions please let me know in the comments and i'll do my best to hit you back. I'll probably put out a part 2 to focus on the other scratch styles eventually but man this took me ages to put together so I'm just going to cool my jets for a bit.

Tom Thum - I Need a Dollar (Beatbox Cover)

New videos added regularly so be sure to subscribe to keep in the know:

This video was originally created to help promote a crowd funding project Jamie Macdowell and I embarked on to help fund a trip to play 25 shows at the Edinburgh Fringe that was going to be damn near impossible. But thanks to everyone sharing it and donating we have well and truly reached our goal. Thanks so much! Legends. I decided to leave the video up because I was happy with it. massive respect to Aloe Blacc.

Some info from a technical point of view:
The way I recorded this was through two separate feeds in to my soundcard. One input was a direct feed from my 3 Kaoss Pads which I have linked together and the other was from my AKG C414 mic. I filled out the Kaoss pad bed tracks using a stereo imager and added compression to the main vocal but kept that tastyyyyy room reverb in there. Once again no effects on any of my vocals except for a touch of reverb. This is all one take with a few cutaway shots thrown in there just to make it a bit more interesting and to show you how shiny my head is in close up. I'm not a tuning fork so there's a few bung notes in there and I'm shithouse at editing but hey you get the idea I gave it a blast. P.S. Give us a buck brus?

Special shout out to Dj Butcher who filmed this and helped me edit it.

Welcome to the official Tom Thum YouTube channel. Tom is a human. He tries to convince people he isn't via his vocal chords.

Armed with just a microphone, Tom Thum has become known as one of Australia's greatest beat boxers proving to be a creative force to be reckoned with.

A Beatbox Concerto | Tom Thum & Gordon Hamilton Ft. The Bombay Chamber Orchestra | TEDxGateway

You may wonder how a beatboxer and an orchestra can work together?

Acclaimed beatboxer Tom Thum and classical powerhouse Gordon Hamilton show you exactly how, as they showcase their world renowned concerto for beatbox and orchestra, Thum Prints.

Together with The Bombay Chamber Orchestra, they deliver a never before seen sneak peak into this globe trotting symphonic project. At first glance, you’d struggle to find a greater example of artistic polar opposites, yet anyone lucky enough to have witnessed this creative alliance would agree that the two compliment each other perfectly.
Executing performances with some of the worlds most renowned orchestras, such as the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic, Cologne’s WDR Funkhausorchester, Florida’s Imperial Symphony Orchestra, Nürnberg Symphoniker, and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to name a few, the pair have been turning concert halls on their heads and continuing to wow audiences with this remarkable collaboration.

Simply titled, ‘Thum Prints’ this boundary pushing symphony comprises mainly of original compositions, wholly written by Tom and Gordon. Bridged by comedic interludes, it has the ability to be programmed as a full 60 minute show, or as a 20 minute concerto in a longer symphonic program. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Mouth Trumpet Tutorial -Tom Thum beatbox

I thought for the third episode of LFTL I thought i'd put my skin back on and focus on some of the sounds themselves with a bit of a tutorial.
A lot of people have been asking how I make my trumpet sound so I thought i'd bring out ol' mate Mild Davis and let you in on my tightly guarded secrets. I really hope this helps!
I'd love to know what other sounds you might like to learn? Hit me up in the comments and if you have any questions post them there!

Sweet Dreams- Tom Thum Beatbox version

So while I was staying in a hotel I could never afford if I had to pay for it myself I decided I would take advantage of the view and make a video. This is my version of the Eurythmics classic Sweet Dreams. I'm wearing a bath robe because I can. I hope you like it.
Big ups to Michelle Grace Hunder for helping out with the filming. Legend.

In terms of sound, I am running one mic into my Kaoss pads then feeding into my soundcard to record in Bbleton. The other main vocal mic is running straight into Ableton.

Super Hero themes Beatbox mashup - Tom Thum

So last year the legends at Roadshow challenged me to re-do some of my favourite theme songs from the classic hero movies and this is what I came up with. It was a super fun project to reimagine everything like this and forced me to learn basic animation as an added bonus. Respeck on your name Roadshow for letting me be so creatively free with this one. PS. I know ghostbusters and knight rider aren't super heroes, deal widdit.
