"Beatbox Algebra" - free workshops with Shodekeh, a Baltimore beatboxer

Students will develop ways to enhance and improve their own relationship with Hip Hop vocal percussion, and also discover ways of applied practical and mathematical uses through varied formations of algebraic equations. The workshop also explores the history and traditions of a largely misunderstood, yet popular and now global African-American music tradition, and all of its indispensable applied scientific, linguistic and mathematical qualities. Participants can choose to take only one, or both, workshops. Workshops will be held Saturdays, Feb 10 & 24, 3:30-5:30pm, in Mattin 101.
