TIM BLAIS BIOGRAPHY

Tim Blais is a popular YouTube star, with over 3.5 million views on his A Capella Science channel, where he reworks pop hits into songs about science (catchy and informative!). Tim’s friends and family call him a genius and now he’s out to prove them right by competing on Canada’s Smartest Person stage.

Tim Blais has over 3.5 million views on his popular YouTube channel A Capella Science, where he combines his love of music with his master in Theoretical Physics to make science fun! This YouTube “edutainer” re-purposes popular songs into educational and entertaining videos about science. He writes and shoots all of the material himself as well as arranges and performs the vocals.

Tim Blais stated that YouTubers are the educators and innovators of the new generation. making the strange, wacky and colorful musical science. When Tim made his first video 5 years ago as a physics master’s student, he had no idea he would ever get a shot at doing something as fun as this full-time. All he knew was that he’d thought of something that he thought would be awesome, and it was something that he had the knowledge and skills to do. So he sat down and made it happen.

Five years on that’s still what Tim Blais is doing. Each of these videos is an experiment–it’s him learning how to communicate science effectively, how to produce music that sounds harmonious and crisp, and how to use the medium of video to pull it all together. He never really know if anyone other than himself will like his next creation; all he know is that he want it to exist, and he is willing to work as hard as he have to until it does. So far an astonishing number of people seem to share his enthusiasm for this weird art-form, and for that he is truly grateful.

Being a YouTuber is a constant internal struggle, with perfectionism and purity of craft on one side and the urge to “go viral”, “pump out more content”, “increase your fan-base” etc. on the other. Far from being academic, as a YouTuber how popular your next video is can determine whether you can eat and pay your rent that month.

When Tim Blais can’t support himself with his regular YouTube content, he take contract work composing music, making non-science-related videos, and doing paid performances. That has its merits too, but it takes weeks out of his life that he’d really rather be putting into these videos. It leads to a lot of frustration with how little material he’s putting out, and shifts him into a mind-set of “just get something done in the easiest, fastest way possible”, rather than really trying to craft something great.

I had never heard the song “Twas in the moon of wintertime“. What a lovely (Canadian) hymn. Even this mashup has me researching and learning new stuff. Thank you, Tim and Dorothy. I am old, but I’m not leaving.
