YouTube Smash Up

PSY - GANGNAM STYLE (강남스타일) M/V (YouTube SmashUp)

Each week, we take the top 10 videos of YouTube and resynthesize the #1 video using the remaining 9 videos. We’ll continue doing so until one of our videos ends up in the top 10. The process, called “Smash Up” is a new kind of remix/mosaicing process which learns tiny perceptual fragments of audio and video using a computational model of audiovisual perception. This work attempts to bring to focus how copyright laws will treat such works of art in the future, when our computational tools for remixing media are able to understand much more about the content rather than simply their textual meta-data (see this blog post expanding on the issue of copyright in my work in more detail).
SmashUp of Youtube's #1 video using only audio and video material from Youtube's top #2-10 videos. We will continue this process every week on the top charted videos until we smashup one of our own videos. This video does not use the content, audio or visual, from the #1 video. It is created from using cut-up fragments of video and sound from the #2-10 videos.
