This is when YouTube is truly a great medium for video. I doubt this is considered mashup as it’s just one source, but brilliant (and mind-boggingly time consuming) editing nonetheless. The maker of the video says he uses 90% original audio, I’m guessing the added audio is for the beat and maybe the pad or bass tracks. Meaning pretty much all you hear in this song is taken directly from the film, chopped, clipped, mixed, screwed with. Amazing. The dumbfoundingly beautiful melody that he has clipped is so melodic (!!!), tasteful, and creepy. It reminds me of music that Telepopmusik, Royksopp, and Thievery Corporation wishes it could make. The song definitely takes on a trip-hop/IDM/car commercial theme song angle.
Not only did this gentleman make a beautiful song almost entirely from audio clips from the Alice in Wonderland movie, he edited video to match the audio perfectly. Mood, rhythm, and theme all unite.
Great choice of video to edit, as well. Such a legend behind this book as you all know – symbolism, drugs, anthropomorphism, massive influence on culture, it’s got it all. If I was this video creator, I would feel like I really created something truly worthy of creation. A big check off the to-do list.
Props to Belardi for the link.
