Can two different YouTube song videos work together to make a new piece of musical art simply by combining the videos? An example of LCD Soundsystem - New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down played with Miles Davis - Louis Malle's Elevator To The Gallows Recording Session seems to make a case for a "Yes" answer.

See it done via YouTube Doubler and also as a screencast of the video playing in two different browsers.

To make this assignment work, find music from two different eras and/or genres and see if you can make a duet by playing them together. What new story does this tell?
