Bobby McFer­rin, whose dis­play of vo­cal dex­ter­ity we dis­cov­ered with His skil­ful use of the body as a per­cus­sion in­stru­ment to per­form the mu­sic of Bach or Miles Davis re­mains a tal­ent that is be­yond words. You will be sur­prised to learn that Switzer­land’s Martin O out­shines him in this very art form. This artist who “dances through his voice” trans­ports us to a place of sounds and har­monies that awaken and stim­u­late our lis­ten­ing ca­pac­ity. With an un­matched han­dle of a sam­pler, Martin O un­rav­els an ar­ray of sounds that trans­form into areal loops, yodels, raps and a col­lec­tion of ono­mato-po­etic sound com­po­si­tions.

A fas­ci­nat­ing ca­reer started, al­low­ing him to cre­ate some­thing new, to im­ple­ment mu­sic in ever chang­ing ways and with it to in­spire peo­ple.

Martin O. puts his voice in lay­ers, sound­ing as if he had swal­lowed an en­tire choir and or­ches­tra al­to­gether. His sto­ries made of mu­sic re­sem­ble a
