Beatbox brilliance

  • Engage

With his live performance videos amassing over half a billion combined plays, Tom Thum’s pedigree in the world of beatboxing is unrivaled.

After witnessing a Tom Thum show, you’d swear there’s a symphony orchestra, jazz band, techno DJ, 80’s synth-pop group, and collection of exotic world instruments all residing somewhere in his throat.

Propelled to Internet stardom with his 2013 TEDx performance at the Sydney Opera House, Tom’s 15-minute showcase quickly became the highest viewed TEDx video of all time with over 77+ million views and counting. Now recognised worldwide for his obscure talent to warp and manipulate his vocal cords, Tom Thum continues to prove no sound is safe from this musical phenomenon.

Current Work:

As an ever-evolving artist, Tom’s finger is constantly on the pulse for new creations that are more often than not, bordering on the unimaginable. It’s because of this unparalleled drive for artistic ingenuity, what most people see as impossible, Tom Thum sees as a challenge.

From creating the world’s first “human synthesized band” for Google to conducting a beatbox endoscopy live at TEDx, perhaps the best example of Tom’s natural instinct for bending limitations is his “beatbox meets orchestra” project, simply titled Thum Prints. Partnering with world-renowned composer Gordon Hamilton, Thum Prints is the world’s first 60-minute beatbox concerto, providing an audio juxtaposition to the delight of audiences across the globe.

From Mumbai to Cologne to Kuala Lumpur, the duo’s “Beat Box Concerto” continues to leave audiences in awe, with their often bizarre, but always entertaining performances. Teaming up with some of the world’s finest symphony orchestras, Thum Prints has also made it onto the stage for the world’s most celebrated Classical music festival - The BBC Proms.

Working his way across the globe, Tom Thum seems to be in constant demand. With his vocal talents being sought out by Pepsi, Roadshow Entertainment, Audi, Virgin Australian, and Sennheiser (to name a few), Tom demonstrated time and time again, that his sound is truly world-class.

Not one to ever slow his creative pace, Tom has recently been bunkered down in development on several new projects including another world first; an online beatbox masterclass series. Add to that, a children’s book in the works, as well as the first human-made beatbox drum sample library and you’ll get an idea of just how prolific he is.

So strap in wherever you are and watch Tom’s star continues to rise.

There are not enough superlatives to describe the wonder of this beatboxing virtuoso - I am still trying to figure out how he got those sounds out of his mouth. The Daily Telegraph (UK)

The mic master seems to have an orchestra living in his throat: trumpet blasts, guitar strums and samples from classic songs including Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean' effortlessly spout from his mouth.

Time Out, NY

Tom was an incredible speaker! Articulate, thorough, passionate, inspiring, humble, hilarious, a perfect candidate for the Conscious Club stage.

USANA Health Sciences, Inc.

Tom Thum was ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING! I cannot even put into words how incredible he is. He sure did stop 600 people in their after dinner chatter at our event, and had them absolutely spellbound during his performance. What a talent! As an event manager you sometimes hold your breath when you take a chance on an act - about three seconds into his performance I could safely exhale watching the wonder on peoples faces.
