Enjoy the Cyrus


This is just all kinds of cool.

It turns out that Miley Cyrus's crappy song When I Look at You, when slowed down 8x, becomes a pretty brilliant, 33-minute-long ambient track.

As one commenter said, this sounds like the new Blade Runner soundtrack.

Minor detail. You can't slow something down 800%. I think you meant 87.5% slower or 1/8 of its speed.

I put that up so quickly that I didn't even bother doing the math; I just swiped that factoid from Harry Allen. Ergo, my bad. Sorry.

What happens when you speed up Vangelis 8x?

Capt Aclow said...

"Minor detail." ...is not a complete sentence because it doesn't contain a verb. I think you meant, "You forgot a minor detail", TGT.

Rather beautiful.

Put this together with the video of jello cubes filmed at 6200 fps

and then you've really got something trippy.

Steve Reich did this in 1965.

Are you sure this isn't new Sigur Ros? :P

A few months back, somebody slowed down Justin Biebers "I Love You" 75% - the result was a thing of beauty, like something dreamed up by Sigur Rós. Question is: What happens if you take one of those dreamy, dreamy songs and speed it up?

Astonishing beautiful! If you had told me i wanted to find a Miley Cyrus song, i would have been astonished.

Anyone know how to find such as this to keep? I'd even PAY for it. Which is kind of galling....

"Minor detail" works fine as an interjection; no, it isn't a full sentence, but it functions very well as a part of speech nonetheless. You are right that it probably should be separated by a semicolon instead of a period, though.

And yeah, I had visions of a unicorn running through a forest as I listened to this. Really cool.

Not sure if you'll see this "timelady" or not, but enjoy.

The music in the video is also rather reminiscent of Vangelis:

In other slowed down music news, here's an unused Playstation 2 commercial with a "Forever Young" remix by V/Vm*:

*V/Vm happens to be one of Leyland [James] Kirby's earlier music-art projects.
