Sigur Ros, sped up 300%.
(And the less funny one that is also making the rounds, posted only so that 30 of you don't post it as a comment.)
I was going to try speeding up Sigur Ros once I got home.
I expected it to sounds like ABBA.
It turned out pretty poppy !
Well that Sigur Ros is positively jaunty!
Brian Eno's "Discreet Music" is worth checking out if you like this. Also, bunches of Gavin Bryar's work.
And yes, I believe that Eno is God. (Rob Willis first told me that before I knew who Eno was!)
I rather like the Portal song, but the slowed-down one is also rather wonderful. I prefer Sigur RÃ³s at normal speed.
However, Justin Bieber - like many YouTube commenters, I've never heard this Murrican teenybopper before, and I wish I hadn't listening to this asinine single. The slowed-down version is great stuff, though.
He's Canadian - you can't blame that particular horror on us.
Because as everybody knows, Canada is not in North America and calling it American is wrong wrong wrong. Canada is in Australia. Duh!
Put it away. The Canadian pejorative is "Canuck", and you can't steal our "Murricans"!
I believe you mean 'Merkins.
Oh really? Oops! I do apologise. Er, apologize.
About 10 years ago on *I think* on illegalart was Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" slowed down at varying rates using granular synthesis like the Bieber one. It is really pretty, though it would be even prettier if it was slow enough you couldn't hear her weird diction. I wish I could find that track now...
Was linked to this yesterday:
say goodbye to whatever is left of your day...
I'm more impressed at how good a job it did of pitch-corrected slowdown. Audacity chokes at that kind of stretch factor last I remember.
That said, one of the reasons I still use mplayer for anything is the -speed option.
Simpson's did it...
But - yeah - wow. I think I'm going to do that to all my Bad Brains recordings.
