Project #5: Youtube Mix

Hallelujah Remix

This project was intended to incorporate appropriated videos from Youtube in a compilation for a new experience. I searched for the many covers of the song Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen and grabbed twenty of over a hundred to be played separately or simultaneousness. The song itself is a powerful one, but has been ridiculously over done to the point that even American Idol has now band it from their stage. My intention was for these videos to overwhelm the viewer and give the feeling that this rendition will almost fall apart. However, with the lyrics and cords played it holds itself together to the end with an almost painful and slightly creepy feel.
