The Pokémon theme song… on a kazoo!
We caught up with Tsuko G, the creator of the KAZOO’d YouTube series
Tsuko covers theme songs from popular games such as Pokemon, Final Fantasy & Street Fighter. He then edits a slightly over the top but still cool video and posts it to YouTube, and the result is pretty amazing.
We caught up with the kazoo playing video game enthusiast himself to ask a few questions.
So why the kazoo?
Well, I started all this kazoo for a silly reason: I was bored. I was thinking about my childhood on my couch, then I remembered that I used to annoy my teachers with a kazoo exactly. Then I rushed to a music store nearby and got a couple of these.
How long did it take you to get that good?
As for the time it took me to reach this level, you should know that in fact kazooing is just singing through a voice modulator. I’m a singer/musician basically, so I had absolutely no trouble.
What would your music teacher at school say about all of this?
I think he/she would be quite surprised about what I’ve done with his/her precious teaching.
How long does it take to make each video?
I also do a lot of producing/sound engineering during free time, so I’m kind of used to the tools I’m using. A regular “Kazoo’d” would take around :
– 2 hours of music writing
– 4 hours of recording/mixing
– 2 hours of shooting
– 2 hours of post production.
But I would confess that the pokemon video took faaaaaaaaaar more than that. Around 40 hours in total easily. And I loved it.
Thank you for speaking to us!
Thank you very much for your time and support. It’s awesome to see myself on cool websites like yours!
