Romeo & the Beanos
an original screenplay by J. Thomas Wells
the bean sound – like Vivaldi, Vangelis and a baby’s cry; you can liken it to Gregorian chant but at a finer higher pitch. Because the beans are phonetically mimicking human voice, there is articulation but with no attempt to preserve actual words other than phonetically. In group unison they are capable of complex harmonies. With the bean box amp their tonal range can be varied to a lower pitch.
