Graffiti Verite' 8: The Fifth Element: The Art of the Beat-Boxer

Combining throat-based effects that create a “wall of sound,” the job of the human beat-boxer is to compose a flawless soundscape.

GV8 explores the history of beat-boxing and its claim as its own art form in the Hip-Hop movement. This documentary features several beat-boxers, who describe some of the challenges they have faced and share the techniques they have developed in order to master their art, such as: stamina, circular breathing, and producing different sounds at the same time.
