Jack Conte & Pomplamoose

Musician and YouTube phenomenon Jack Conte has two rules when it comes to his videos:

  • What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
  • If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).

… with rather cool results, I dare say:

If you’re slightly familiar with Conte, you’ll know about Pomplamoose, a duo that Conte has produced some tracks for. They stick to the same rules:

This DIY attitude toward recording combined with the instant world wide audience YouTube provides got me thinking: is the next musical revolution taking place on YouTube, right under our noses?

  1. Nice find, Barry! I really like these videos. I envy Jack’s limitless talent and ingenuity. ‘Gulf’ sounds like something from Tool. Conte gets some great sounds out of that acoustic. And a excellent revamp of ‘September”.

  2. BTW, all this might require some high-quality techniology – right? It seems really diffucult (to me) to cut all these separate tracks and bring them together – WITH THE VIDEO! I dont think its a five-minute procedure…
