Gilles de la Tourette meets Human Beatbox: Vocal tics in motion (Iktic)

Tourette’s Syndrome is primarily a terrible disorder but sometimes also very musical. With that in mind musician and singer-songwriter Wouter Berlaen and organisation Iktic took a beat that consists solely of vocal tics in people with Tourette syndrome. The result is this great human beatbox style ‘Vocal tics in motion’.

Iktic is the Belgian association for and by people with Tourette syndrome.

Today, June 7, is also the European Tourette Syndrome day. And the people behind this day ask you to make a #TSelfie. Take a selfie with one eye blinking (which makes it a TSelfie, because this is one of the most common tics). And post your the hashtag #TSelfie on your social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Every status update with #TSelfie is posted on this wall.
