An Interview with Alec (Part 2)
An Interview with Alec (Part 1)
How is vocal percussion different than, say, a beatbox battle?
So often Vocal Percussionist (VP) vs Beatboxer (BB) are used as interchangeable terms, and in a general sense they do more or less mean the same thing. To clarify though, the connotations are different though. VP usually refers to someone in an a cappella group…
Percussing with Alec
Since this is the season of giving, we wanted to give you a surprise Christmas gift of our own – a sneak peek into the world of our very own vocal percussionist, Alec!
The unsung hero of 6-1-forte, Alec is the lone member whose primary role is NOT to sing in the a cappella group. This being a unique angle in the group, we got curious to learn more about his world, and want to bring you along with us!
Behind the Scenes of a 5-hour Rehearsal
Look, beatboxers don't get a lot of glory... but they usually have to write their own parts to each song. And our vocal percussionist is entirely self-taught. Take a look at Alec trying to school the rest of us on making mouth noises.

Click-clack. The door to the Teays Valley High School choir room opens with a start, and in comes Drew in with 2 stools, 1 book bag, 1 parcel of snacks, and bottle of liquid to last the next 5 hours.
Yawn. Someone forgot coffee. Oops.
Sip n Sing
‘Tis the season!
Gigging season, that is.
One of the most exciting times of the year for 6-1-forte, that is for sure. Once the holidays come upon us, as you may guess we find ourselves with a unique amount of opportunities to celebrate the Yuletide spirit. It all boils down to this: people love carolers.
Well hello there!
So … theoretical question here. (Asking for a friend.)
I am genuinely curious for an answer here. What … exactly … happens when a person finally does the thing they’ve been meaning to?
You know, when something you’ve dreamed about and worked for … finally comes to fruition?
