Take Radiohead's classic album Kid A. Give each song to a different band. Perform the whole album live, in order.
That's what's happening this weekend: 10 different acts, each doing one song — Latin hip-hop rock, indie-pop, Flamenco, Afro-indie soul, electro-jazz, Balinese gamelan — and of course, Yours Truly.
I'll be singing "Idioteque" — starting with my all-vocal / beatbox live-looping, then accompanied by a string quintet and a master turntablist — both of whom I will battle to your orgiastic delight.
We did this show in 2013, in 3 sold-out performances. SF Weekly said, "It ranks among the best concerts we've seen in the Bay Area this year... there are performances you'll be talking about for the entire year... Kid Beyond proves to be exceptional."
I've been a professional voice actor – for commercials, video games, museum tours, etc. – for about 16 years now. One of my favorite companies to work with is Telltale Games, who produce wickedly funny episodic video games.
Some of the characters I've played for them:
Back to the Future
Sam & Max
Max, Narrator, Papierwaite, Moleman, etc.
Bugeye, De Cava, Trenchfoot, etc.
Phoney Bone, Ted the Bug
I stopped by the Telltale offices, and the result was this lovely interview:
AMPLIVATE — THE EP!
Four mind-blowing songs in Kid B's all-vocal all-beatbox style. Four killer remixes from SF, NY, and LA.
