Gotye remixed dozens of covers of his most popular song into something he called “Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra”.

He said:

“Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn’t resist the massive remix-ability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered. Thank you to everyone who has responded to ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ via YouTube. It’s truly amazing!

To create the mix, he didn’t add any extra instruments, but he used “EQ, filtering, pitch-shifting and time-stretching” tools to make it all fit together.
