In April of 2004 I recently saw Squarepusher in Boston and I was presently surprised by the opening act, a beat box artist by the name Kenny Muhammad, aka The Human Orchestra. Don't get me wrong Squarepusher was out of control but I was ready for that but I had no expectations and Kenny was extrememly impressive.
Kenny had quite an elaborate collection of beats i his arsenal. My personal favorite is the microphone on to the throat technique, that underwater kind of sound.
If anyone gets a chance to see The Human Orchestra I would definitely recommend it.
I saw him again and we had a chance to talk for a few minutes. Take a look at the CD he hooked me up with.
