Acronym Vocable Barbershop

  [vote for,

A style of music, making heavy use of complex harmonisation, where the "words" sung are acronyms, used as vocables.

The fields of computer science and the military provides fertile ground for composition and thematic variation, though other sources are, of course, not ruled out.

       I'd be impressed by anyone who could vocalize QPSK, let alone 64-QAM. Does this include trellis coding and error correction?

       //vocalize QPSK//
Perhaps that subset of sci-fi fan who can speak Klingon, which conjours up images of a a Cornish Pasty-headed Quartet harmonising and spraying spittle over passing shoppers.

       I once dropped a "talking calculator" into the toilet by accident. When I took it out it went haywire, and vocalised a string of delightful gibberish before it stopped working completely. What's this got to do with your idea calum? - not too sure, but I like the idea, and it reminded me somehow of the demise of my calculator. +
