I’m always on the lookout for new movements in technology+music.. and today this newsbit had me shocked. With the help of a new, open-source software called Paul’s Extreme Timestretch, you can do some amazing things with sound.
As an example of it’s power, one user named Nick Pittsinger has time-stretched Justin Bieber’s entire original track “U Smile” – and slowed it down 8 times (or 800%) to amazing result. The resulting track is something Peter Gabriel might publish.. or the backtrack for a Dead Can Dance epic. Pretty amazing. Hear the re-worked track below (The SoundCloud link had over 1,000,000 hits this week – pretty impressive.)
Lifehacker has also posted a nifty How-To on making your own ambient epics. Check it out HERE.
