Harry Yeff (aka Reeps One) is an artist-in-residence at Nokia Bell Labs’ Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) program. The result of this collaboration is We Speak Music, a new documentary series that explores the capabilities of voice and communication beyond the spoken word.

We Speak Music is “an investigative journey of voice and human communication, offering scientific, cultural, technological and artistic insights into how the art of beatboxing is the ultimate exploration of its potential.” The series will offer insights from the global community of beatboxers, like Rahzel, as well as neuroscientists, engineers and educators.

Rahzel and Reeps One

As voice-enabled technology continues to expand and become more intelligent, it’s more important than ever to think about how we express ideas and feelings using just the human voice, and how technology will help us communicate across different languages.

The six-part series will culminate in a collaborative one-of-a-kind performance from Reeps One and his AI “vocal twin” that’s sure to make you rethink the connection between man and machine.

Watch the trailer above and be sure to catch the first episode of We Speak Music on March 2, 2019.
