Very cool.

Called, the “Mother of All Funk Chords,” this song and video is made only from various YouTube clips. Must of taken forever, but boy did it ever pay off. More at thru-you.com/.

It’s stuff like this that really dictates the passage of copyright laws, since it’s obviously a creation of considerable originality and artistic value, but made with previously released parts.

    I enjoy those videos quite a bit. I think it’s especially interesting if you go into the “credits” and watch some of the original material. It gives you a sense of what Kutiman was looking for; for instance a lot of the source material is a video of basic rudiments.

    The original video of the Purdy Shuffle (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FX_84iWPLU&feature=related) is near the top of my all-time YouTube greats.
