Talking with him is a bit like watching a tennis match, as he stands first on one foot, then the other.
Tall and slim, he looks like an overgrown six-year-old who could have driven his parents and teachers to distraction just trying to get him to calm down and be quiet.
He is perhaps best described as a human percussion instrument, and fans around the world seem to love his energetic style, and the odd, rhythmic combination of lyrical pings, pops, clinks, zips and booms he creates with his mouth, lips, tongue and voice.
He rose to fame in Russia after winning a national beatbox championship in 2008, and began posting YouTube videos in 2009. He has well over 200,000 YouTube subscribers and estimates half of them are from the US. - Maria Young, RIA Novosti

In my gigs I use "live" instruments (guitars, voice, percussion) as well as "dead" instruments (samplers, synths, drum-machines). I'm against any mental boundaries between "electronic" and "live" music.
You can make a good song using only an arbalest.
