On a frosty October morning, I made my way to the Battersea Arts Centre for the UK Beatbox Championships! I was invited to talk about our recent paper on how beatboxing influences brain activity. I also had the chance to sit in on an Introduction to Beatboxing workshop, which means I can now demonstrate beatboxing in talks (maybe!).
One of the features of this years championships was demonstrating how beatboxing is being applied in different venues. I was really excited to hear about how beatboxing is being used with adolescents who have chronic pulmonary and cardiac problems.
Kudos to the organisers!
