    18: Reeps One Meets Reeps Two

    So skilled is Harry Yeff - better known as champion beatboxer Reeps One - at his craft that he’s prompted one neuroscientist to note: “[he] can make at least three sounds simultaneously [with his mouth] -- and theoretically you're not supposed to be able to do that.” Having been the subject of scientific studies since 2012, Reeps One continues to hone his craft and explore the outer limits of what is possible with the human voice. Now, as a Bell Labs Artist In Residence and collaborator, he’s training a sophisticated deep learning artificial intelligence system to beatbox – setting the scene for a most unusual duet. We get the full, behind the scenes scoop in our latest episode. To learn more about Reeps One and this groundbreaking journey, check out the recently released, six-part web documentary entitled “We Speak Music.” Future Human is a presentation of Nokia Bell Labs, produced by Audiation.fm.
