MARK BOOMBASTIK – Singer, lyricist and musician born 1978 in Hamburgs notorious „Schanzenviertel“ – started doing Human-Beatbox in the age of 12 after his acoustic-guitar broke into pieces because somebody stepped on it during a party at his flat… Improving his technic and style Mark Boombastik became the only human beatboxer of the experimental music scene. Through the years he worked with a lot of different people, from hip hop (Trainingslager,Fischmob etc) to experimental and elec- tronic musicians (Hofoku Soshi, Funkstoerung, Patric Catani, Felix Kubin, Khan,Max Goldt) besides doing his own incredible live concerts all over Europe. „Since the whopper got stock in the throats of the Fat Boys in the middle of the 80s,nobody ever crea- ted such a thunderstorm of fat beats of all colours with his mouth.“ Mark Boombastik puts his very raw and tight beats through special analogic effects so that he creates his songs live. His pure intensity is equipped with an attitude that doesn‘t leave no doubts. Meanwhile Mark Boombastik lives in Berlin and Hamburg and is recording his Solo Album. His teeth are stroboscopes, his lips a million amps, his tongue a billion drum-rolls. Check it out while he is checking in.

Mark Boombastik performed solo at Hitparaden 2

And he performed live with Jörn J. Burmester and Florian Feigl in a performance called “TEOTWAWKI”.

Om liveart_dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
