Someone did a slowed version of U-Smile and it's awesome

It's like the stuff that Shenkar did on Heroes.

It's not bad, really. But I think it's interesting that people can listen to that for a half hour. A million plus people.

I think most of those people listened to it for five minutes and gave up. But it honestly sounds nice.

Yeah, probably 500,000 people or lest pressed Play a couple of times.

It's fine, I'm not into music made that way on purpose either.

Re: Justin Bieber's U-Smile slowed 800% = Ambient

That's a fun morning background listen; I started it and cleaned up around the house and then took a shower and it was still going when I was done. Reminds me of that one Godflesh song that took up a whole album side and was based on a slowed-down Beach Boys sample. But really, I imagine this kid's music is so uninteresting to begin with that any attempts to alter it - slow it down, speed it up, subject it to chance operations determined by the I Ching - can only make it better as it couldn't be any worse.

if you really want a song to listen to, listen to all of the song "dopesmoker" by Sleep. Its a 63 minute stoner/doom metal song. here's part one

Very cool. I couldn't get past 5 minutes, but the experiment totally works.

I think it's pretty awesome, reminds me of Sigur Ros.

There's a download link at that site at the top left of the player, above the waveform.

Re: Justin Bieber's U-Smile slowed 800% = Ambient

This is actually fairly cool. I like ambient music, and didn't think that this would work out as well as it did. I look forward to any others that are done in the same way.

I guess Reddit has a bunch of these:

Thanks for the link; the slower version of Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek really works well.

Re: Justin Bieber's U-Smile slowed 800% = Ambient

This is surprisingly easy to do. I've done a couple metal songs, which are pretty cool in a dark ambient/drone kind of way. It'll take some messing around to find something that really grabs me, though.

I wonder how the instrumental songs Moby does would sound?
