Speaker Biography

Harry Yeff, better known by his stage name Reeps One, is a London-born musician and artist. He began beat-boxing as a teenager and has become internationally recognised as a leading artist of the New School Beatbox Scene. Yeff produces work spanning disciplines, contexts and media as a response to an ongoing investigation into the evolution of the human voice, art and science. His work explores the fusion of visual and audio cultures, transforming vocal music into visible, physical form through performance, installation, sculpture, photography and film as well as curatorial, directorial and academic projects.

In 2018 Reeps One presented the first ever beatboxing battle between him and an artificial intelligence (AI) opponent. To do this, he partnered with programmer and artist CJ Carr to develop a deep-learning program, taking a lecture Reeps had given in Sweden and transforming it into a completely new string of sounds.
