Pushing musical boundaries

Expect a unique show at Lake Country's Creekside Theatre on Saturday when vocal virtuoso, beatboxer, and musical storyteller Martin O performs.

The acclaimed Swiss musician began his fascination with manipulating sound at a young age, starting with violin lessons.

After a brief stint as a primary teacher, he returned to music as a member of a successful acapella group, wrote music for films, and served as artistic director for the Hitzigen Appenzell Choir. 

Following the group’s breakup, he created his own one-man show: Martin O.

Since 2016, the "million-voice man" has been on the road, creating musical landscapes by repeatedly recording and playing his own voice, polyphonic soundscapes and songs — including original compositions and hits of various styles and eras. He performs in German, French and English.

Close your eyes and you hear a whole choir. Open them and all you see is one man on the stage.

Combined with humorous storytelling, he pushes the boundaries of sonic possibility.

Two acapella groups from the UBC Okanagan Beats music club will open the show.

Tickets can be purchased at www.creeksidetheatre.com, by phone at 250-766-9309 or at the door.
