YTConcerto Andreja Andric

YTConcerto is a real-time computer generated mashup of YouTube videos, in 8 video channels per laptop. The algorithm that drives the work explores the YouTube recommendation feature by playing randomly chosen fragments of videos that are retrieved by either submitting a randomly constructed query, or by exploring lists of videos “similar” to one previously chosen. The work takes inspiration from random mashups of recorded music, radio transmissions and ambient sounds made by John Cage in his Imaginary Landscape and Mix series, and aims to be as hilarious, mind-opening and profound as its predecessor.
