Here’s an example of The Awesome Power of a Fully Operational Internet.
If you’ve ever searched YouTube for demonstrations of music gear or techniques, you know that you can pretty much find anything. Within the past few weeks, Israeli musician Kutiman emerged with a project that, by forwarding it to only 20 of his friends, has now been raging around the ‘Net like wildfire.
This guy has talent
Kutiman has created some amazing musical mashups of random clips he found on YouTube. With an amount of media that would have driven the 1970′s David Bowie insane, Kutiman built order from chaos, and compiled it on his site, ThruYou.
This kind of project is something that only a handful of people would think of doing, let alone have the skills to pull off. Check out a full composition:
This is the Internet
This shows off the real promise of the connectivity we’ve been blessed with by the Internet. It’s also another fulfillment of a prophecy made by Andy Warhol in the 60′s: “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” Kutiman will certainly be more famous than most, but he’s yet another connection of inspiration for others, just as the musicians he sampled had provided inspiration to him.
Never before, have we been given so much to connect, interact, learn, and entertain with.
