Remix culture has just found its latest incarnation.
Kutiman, a member of a collective called bacon oppenheim, has taken music videos found on YouTube and blended the audio and used the visuals to create individual versions of tracks – essentially using YouTube as a box of samples to pick from to create some great tunes.
By way of understanding the diversity of material included, the first, Mother of all funk chords, features a mass of instruments including two theramins.
Each of the artists on the track are also credited and linked backed to, so you can explore the source material.
Great idea, and a refreshing approach. Expect this to inspire many.
Don’t miss this one.
