So I'm doing a report for my music theory class on musicians who are famous for making unique sounds with their instrument that you would normally not think the instrument was capable of making. Here's my current list.


General Speech (giving speech during trombone solo):

Sequenza V (weird trombone piece):

Flute Beatboxing (Greg Pattillo of Winter in June):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59ZX5qdIEB0

Nat McIntosh, Multiphonics on Tuba:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZp6aBpERwk

Tom Morelo, Guitar:
May different noises (monkey, chopper, turn tables, ect.)
Ex. Original Fire Solo: Audioslave
Ex. Bulls on Parade Solo: Rage Against The Machine

John Five (Use of Wah for "vocals"):
Welcome to the Jungle cover (for now)


What do you think so far? Does anyone have any recommendations for what could be here or something you don't think should be here?

Slash used to use that TalkBox thing.

I've got one in the back of my head, I'll come back when I remember.

I suppose if your counting Tom Morello's use of effects you could include Dragonforce's use of octave pedals, like in the solo for Valley of the Damned.

does slap bass count?

I guess it's a pretty widespread technique nowadays though...

Anyone making music on a theremin


I disagree, this is not creating sounds the instrument was not intended for, it's just a slightly obscure instrument.

I would suggest you look at James "Bubber" Miley a trumpet player. Created his own sounds in Duke Ellington's band i think.

Look him up on wikipedia

Really? o.o

I thought the electric pulses in your hands would alter the vibrations of the rod...

Maybe I'm thinking of something completely different.
