This is a video of 37-year old Japanese Zen Buddhist monk Yogetsu Akasaka layering sounds and chants all created with his own voice into this ‘Heart Sutra x beatbox live-looping remix’. Apparently prior to becoming a monk Yogetsu was a beatboxer, busker, and theater actor. Now he’s a beatboxer and monk. Me? I have always been and always will be– “A no-good scoundrel.” What? “A disappointment?” You know the whole self-deprecating thing only works when I say it, when you do it it’s just bullying.
