Net_Music_Weekly: ThruYou

thruyou.jpgLike so many of us, Ophir Kutiel enjoys cruising YouTube, land of a million amateur film clips. Unlike the rest of us, the 27-year-old Israeli musician and producer – who goes by the name Kutiman – has found in his virtual wanderings the raw materials for a groundbreaking project called ThruYou: seven original songs made by mixing dozens upon dozens of music clips that have been uploaded to YouTube. — Boston Globe

After disclosing ThruYou to just twenty friends, Kutiman’s project spread virally across the web, racking up more than one million views in less than a week. After viewing ThruYOU, open source advocate Lawrence Lessig praised the project as a pioneer of a new, less regulated form of media, saying “If you come to the Net armed with the idea that the old system of copyright is going to work just fine here, this more than anything is going to get you to recognize: you need some new ideas.” — Wikipedia Continue reading

Reblogged Radiohead’s Data Melancholy

2257259120_ff7581e3d4.jpgIn case you missed it, Radiohead have gone all data-aesthetic with their latest video, House of Cards. What’s more, it’s fully zeitgeist-compliant, with open access and a call for re-visualisations of a quite massive dataset: hundreds of megabytes of spatial data gathered with various 3d laser-scanning rigs. If the download stats and early signs are anything to go on, we will be seeing much more of this dataset. Continue reading

Julie Freeman’s “Dogs’ Ears”

A witty and subversive take on the video chat room, Dogs’ Ears — commissioned by the ICA (UK) — explores the beauty and language of the dog ear and the future of arts patronage in the digital era. Presented as a video chat website, visitors can log-in and browse dogs for free. But if users want to ‘chat’ with a dog, then they will need to make a small donation – either to the charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People – or direct to the artist to fund the next stage of the project, when Freeman will write software that analyses the ear movements to produce a sonic piece.
