What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Unwitting Collaboration

Israeli composer Ophir “Kutiman” Kutiel creates original songs by editing together clips of amateur musicians he finds on YouTube. Through his “ThruYOU” music project, he has collaborated with hundreds of artists from around the world.

“At first I took some drummers—before I had the idea about ThruYOU, I took some drummers from YouTube and I played on top of them—just for fun, you know. And then one day, just before I plugged my guitar to play on top of the drummer from YouTube, I thought to myself, you know—maybe I can find a bass and guitar and other players on YouTube to play with this drummer . . . It took me two months, but it was really intense. I barely ate, I just worked on a computer and went to sleep, day and night, and night and day. [I] didn’t see any friends, no family, not even the sun.

If you like what you hear, his new album, “Thru YOU Too,” will be released on October 1. Like the song above, the whole album is composed of only “unrelated YouTube videos.” Cool!
