TEDx // think outside the beatbox

An Adventure with TEDxMileHigh speaker Mark Martin that will delve into how you can harness the power of your voice and explore your human instrument.

The story of beatboxing is one of creativity, resourcefulness, and radical self-expression. An American art form born in NYC, the epicenter of hip-hop culture, beatboxing has gone on to become an international phenomenon that transcends language, culture, and time. Mark will lead us on an Adventure that challenges how we talk about the way we talk. What we think informs how we act, so changing the way we talk can change the way we live. Join us to explore how you can expand your sound palate and question ways we can shift the fundamentals of communication in powerful ways.


As the winner of the 2016 American Beatbox Championships and the International 2016 BeatRhyme Battle, Mark Martin is best known for playfully blurring the lines between language and sound. He toured the world with the theater group VocaPeople for 5 years. He enjoys collaborating with other musicians, especially his partner and fellow World Beatbox Champion, Kaila Mullady as Lightship. He is a passionate educator and taught in New York City for 8 years. Today, he leads workshops around the country. He is a chef, a dancer, and an Eagle Scout.
