Israeli musician/producer Ophir Kutiel, aka Kutiman, recently debuted his latest project. The project, titled Thru YOU, is based on sampling YouTube audio and cutting it together as a video to create wholly new tracks.
The seven tracks of Thru You cover a broad range of genres and even provides links to all the source clips. The process is essentially rooted in sampling and even bears a resemblance to the recent work of Girl Talk with an added twist. There is a level of richness that seeing the accompanying video provides. In many cases, it helps isolate and emphasize individual samples. Additionally, inclusion of the footage shapes the overall tone of the piece.
Check out the Thru YOU microsite to see all seven tracks. Thank you Michael for the tip.
