Kutiman Holds Up Refined Mirror to YouTube Generation


Kutiman Mixes YouTube
Kutiman, an Israeli musician, has created a fascinating reflexive
project – Thru You – in which using mainly instructional and performance
videos, all on YouTube, he has created seven really rather
sophisticated music-video mashups. These tracks don’t just hang
together they work musically and visually presenting an almost polished
product from what is essentially found material. Ingeniously
sidestepping potential copyright arguments by refraining from using
professional video material from established artists, this project uses
mainly amateur or instructional work, eschewing the music business
itself and preferring school concerts and home movies! This is
extremely creative stuff, very much in the spirit of the Zeitgeist.
Congratulations Kutiman.
