ThruYou: Kutiman Mixes YouTube

I've always appreciated mashups. The ability to hear random pieces of music and find their unintended match(es) elsewhere. Forget the skill of putting them together. They always surprise and delight me.

This is something new I think. Drawing from the huge, untamed (free) library of resources that is YouTube, Kutiman sorted through the musical minutiae collecting different videos - people playing instruments, singing, teaching - and looking for ways they fit together. The end result is 7 tracks of varying style and genre that are completely original, along with an edited combination of their videos. It kind of blew my mind.
