Youtube clips diced into seamless tunes
So this guy Kutiman takes makes really seamless sounding songs out of snippets of Youtube audio and video. The videos are just edits of the original clips, so help to expose which bits come from separate clips. He provides an explanatory vid and another with a full list of credits, which is a good touch, I reckon.
The idea is pretty old hat, c.f. Hexstatic and his/their work with Coldcut, but the execution's pretty intriguing. The seamlessness of the results is really the bit that I find interesting. I mean, you can hear editing taking place, but it could easily be editing of parts all purpose-written to go together. Depending on your mood, this could point to the homogeneity of popular music styles or the extent of Kutiman's skills.
Also. OH SHIT WEB 2.0 OMG BRO PARTICIPATORY MEDIA FAR OUT YOUTUBE WILL EAT ITSELF IT'S A NEW ERA.
