Around the world and into your gob, vocal explorer and songwriter Mal Webb takes you on a lip to lung journey through the physics, physiology and phrivolity of all the sounds a face can make.

Sideways yodelling, beatbox/mouthdrums/vocal percussion, harmonics/throat singing, charactor voices, mic technique, looping, advanced clapping and vocal distortion (without hurting) are all explored on the way to being a band with your voice and the lead singer too!

This is for anyone who’s curious, for all ages – independent children, adults, grannies and grandads – anyone who get get a sound from their mouth will get something from this.
