Beatboxing flautist performs Super Mario theme

Eric Stephenson Greg Pattillo is a beatboxing flautist (if you got it, flaut it), shown here performing a stirring rendition of the Super Mario theme.

  1. This video has been around for a while I really like his “flight of the bumblebee”

  2. As much as I love videos of people beatboxing (it’s a fine line between awesome and absurd), and of renditions of the Super Mario theme on varied instruments, I’m not sure mashing them up has worked in this instance. Kudos to him for trying though.

  3. I think heard a piece about him on NPR last week.

    BTW i am the only one who initially mis-read
    ” Beatboxing flautist” as

    “Beatboxing FLATUALIST”?

    its only a mater of time…

  4. Better quality sound/video, another video here featuring “Nathan ‘Flutebox’ Lee” in a joint performance from him and “Beardeyman” (Beatboxer) on a visit to Google’s London offices. Check the HD button after loading for the best quality.

  5. As a flute player, I really prefer “flutist” to “flautist.” I don’t play the flaut, I play the flute!

  6. What about just a plain old boxing flautist? Or rather, two boxing flautists boxing each other in a one-on-one boxing/flute jam throwdown. How do they play with the gloves on? I don’t know. I’m just the idea guy.

    Slightly less interesting (though no less entertaining) would be the boxing flatulists.

  7. This actually grosses me out. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I’m sure it has a lot to do with spit.

  8. An improvement over plain vanilla beatboxing, I think. I can’t see the word flautist without finding a fault in it – but I like flutist, if it catches on…
