I never heard of the Israli musician Kutiman before today, and I already think he’s a genius. It was starting to sound trite to me when people talk about the potential of the Internet to enable creativity. But this is a convergence of technology, Internet culture, creativity, and maybe a little madness that kicked my jaded little ass.
What you are about to see is a mix of unrelated YouTube videos/clips together to create ThruYou. In other words, what you see is what you hear.
I sent a link to several of my musician friends. Within a couple of hours, two of them responded with the same phrase: blown away.
If Kutiman puts out an album, I will buy it. If he needs a legal defense fund, I will contribute to it.
