Ho Hum

“I don’t know the song, but if you hum a few bars, I’ll fake it.” That’s the classic response to a request, but how hard is it to do? Video artist Anton Hecht of Canvas tried it out with a three-piece band in downtown Newcastle.

Sometimes it worked pretty well; other times it fell flat. That probably had more to do with the abilities of the hummer than the perception of the band. It’s particularly difficult when they ask for a hum and get a beatbox response instead. I only recognize one of the songs they hummed, and you can no doubt guess which one. Did you recognize any others? -Thanks, Anton!
