Artist Steve Lambert just added a video to Artists Space's YouTube Commentary Project, above. For this ongoing series, Artists Space invite artists to select a YouTube video and record their own commentary, which is then uploaded to Artists Space's channel. Lambert deviated a bit from this format by hiring actors to read the commentary posted to the video "Shostakovich, Symphony No. 5." His reasoning is that even "high brow" videos on YouTube generate goofy (e.g. "I like the white tuxedos!") and trivial discussions. His version of the video, with the inclusion of the dubbed comments, was then reinserted into the original conversation as a posted comment.
