Just been introduced to the talent of Kutiman via Paul Rostill with his post on the SOS Music Recording Technology Forum.
Here’s his perfect description of what Kutiman does:
“What he has done is use Youtube as a stonking great big sample library, of sorts. And he’s not using just the audio, but the video as well. So, a video DJ perhaps, only much more so.
“It’s not an entirely new idea. I’ve seen vaguely similar things done before, but nothing on this level.
“The sources are almost entirely taken from amateur musicians who were none the wiser that the humble sonic doodles they put on Youtube would amount to anything. Much less be hijacked in this creative & impressive way.
“From this semi random chaos, one man has made brilliance that is much more than the sum of its parts. I’ve not been this impressed in… a long time!?”
Kutiman must have put a huge amount of time into creating these videos from the raw ‘samples’ of these gifted YouTubers.
