The Internet as musical instrument

If you've spent any time on teh interwebs this week, you might have noticed one of these three ridiculously fun sites:

Firstly, http://www.najle.com/idaft/, which allows you to recreate kind of a poor man's version of 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' by Daft Punk.

And there's also http://www.ronwinter.tv/drums.html, which allows you to randomly bash some electro sounding samples together. I believe this is how Girl Talk made his last album:

The latter has a (rather pointless, but fun?) Facebook group which already has almost 6,000 members.

I tried to get all fancy and mix them all together (see below), but failed miserably. I kept getting IM'd:

Then of course there's Thru-You. Where this guy Kutiman has only just gone and made an album full of songs using samples from YouTube performances. And it's actually bloody listenable:

None of this is hugely revolutionary in idea. At it's core this is basically a funny soundboard mixed with one of those clickety beepity DJ mixing sites that vodka brands would do years ago. But they're all executed really well. And another tiny tiny death knell for the shite that the big music corporations keep dishing out to us.

It's such lo-fi goodness. And then you add in things like mobile, and all sorts of cool things start to happen.

I'm sure there's loads of examples I'm missing out on. And full credit to the people who've raised the possibility of this stuff before.

Exciting times.
