Video: Video: Wally De Backer (Gotye) himself edits together all the the various covers on YouTube of Somebody That I Used To Know
A full list of links to the original videos is available here:â€¨â€ª http://bit.ly/NsKnfw Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn't resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.â€¨â€¨ I was directly inspired here by Kutiman's Thru-You project: â€¨â€ªhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tprMEs-zfQAâ€¬â€¨ Wonderful stuff!â€¨â€¨ Thankyou to everyone who has responded to Somebody That I Used To Know via YouTube. It's truly amazing! All audio and video in Somebodies is from the YouTube user videos featured, each of them a cover or parody of Somebody That I Used To Know. No extra sounds were added to the mix, but I used some EQ, filtering, pitch-shifting and time-stretching to make the music.â€¨â€¨ â€¬â€¨â€¨I avoided using any existing remixes of the song, or any covers from tv talent shows.â€¨ As comprehensive and extensive as I tried to be with my downloading of source videos, I know there are many clips that I missed. Tay Zonday's cover for instance, no internet mashup should be without him. â€¨â€¨I used KeepVid.com to download the YouTube videos, Ableton Live for audio stretching, pitch-shifting and the initial video editing, and Adobe's After Effects to put the final video together. â€¨â€¨Big thanks to Travis Banko for assistance with downloading source videos, and to James Bryans for After Effects tutelage.â€¨â€¨ Thankyou to Barry for being Barry, and guiding us all.â€¨â€¨ Thanks to you for listeningâ€¨â€¨ Wally
