“Mash ups” have long been the best thing about digital music in recent years and some of the best tracks in my playlists are mashups from unsigned / unknown bedroom producers.
But this week “Kutiman” was featured on youtube for his really great compositions (and they are compositions) using audio and video from the you tube user base.
There was some teacup stormage with people thinking (wrongly) that youtube would cane him for copyright and using other people vids.. on the contrary they are promoting him.
Anyway the “Thru-you” series of user-remix music “open source music” is really great, with a real dub / funk / breaks tangent.

Hello Dear Reader,
I’m not ignoring you, at least not on purpose. Though I’d love to be out taking photos, making art, recording music and generally sharing content with you I thought I should let you know I’ve started my Masters of Information Technology at CSU. Because of my industry experience I have been awarded a good deal of credit and so am roughly halfway through the course already! That is an offer I could not turn down, and am pursuing this level of education for the moment.
Naturally this is rather technical, and sometimes dry, stuff so I have created a new blog which deals solely with my current research topic - The iPhone. Since I bought my iPhone I’ve been downright besotted with the thing. Yes, I’m one of *those* people now… twittering on the go, toucing, pinching and swiping my new friend which comes with me everywhere. So I’ve decided to turn an otherwise unhealthy obsession into a research project with the aim of learning Objective C and iPhone Application development. Granted I won’t be the greatest coder in a few months, but I’d like to learn more about the device I’ve taken to so fondly. What better way than to get under the bonnet.
I don’t expect any of Deography’s regular readers will be much interested but if you are head over to the new blog Iphone 3g Development. I suspect it will be more active than Deography over the next little while but I will try to post when I can!
