Guy Comes Up with Dance Mix Using Sounds of Pokemon Creatures

By on

In a matter of weeks, the popularity of Pokemon Go has grown by leaps and bounds. The hit location-based augmented reality mobile game from American software development company Niantic Inc. has transcended all generations, genders, cultures, and races. Everyone, whether Asian or American, European or Latino, is out and on the move, looking for rare Pokemon creatures to capture and train.

The Internet has been teeming with many stories about Pokemon Go, from the useful to the absurd, from the interesting to the disturbing.

That?s why it didn?t come as a surprise when Toronto-based music and video producer Andrew Huang came up with a hypnotic electronica track by mixing the different cries and unique sounds that Pokemons make.

Andrew Huang?s YouTube video, done in a hilarious and tongue-in-cheek way, pretty much explains how he came up with the track. At this writing, his video has more than 37,000 views.

For those who are not familiar with his name yet, Andrew Huang, according to his official website, is a ?versatile and prolific musician,? who has ?released over 2,000 songs in a massive range of genres.?

Andrew Huang has done a variety of collaborations, including ?creating an interactive sonic art installation under the mentorship of Emily Haines (Metric); composing the World Wildlife Fund?s official Earth Hour anthem; and producing numerous viral hits with YouTube sensations such as Rhett & Link, Hannah Hart (My Drunk Kitchen) and Boyinaband.?

The YouTube star is famous for his Song Challenge video series, ?which invites viewers to dare him in feats of musicianship, and has garnered him over 40,000,000 views on his YouTube channel. He has penned a five-language rap, composed a song with 300,000 notes in it (in celebration of surpassing 300,000 subscribers), and covered numerous pop songs using only the sounds of items mentioned in the lyrics – for instance, “99 Red Balloons” played on red balloons.?

The next time you go out of your home to hunt for new Pokemons, maybe Andrew Huang?s Pokemon mix can keep you going. But don?t forget to take into heart what Andrew says at the end of the video: ?Just remember, if you?re playing Pokemon Go, and you?re trespassing on a stranger?s property, at least wear a mask or something. The last thing you want is for them to get a Pikachu.?
