One of my favorite videos has always been the Seinfeld theme slowed down 1200%. So I was pretty excited to find this assignment. I chose Second Generation, a pretty good Prince Jammy song, cause reggae is one of my favorite styles of music and I thought it would be a neat thing to hear slowed down to the extreme. The results rendered it unrecognizable. It’s interesting to hear how the percussion devolved into, essentially, bursts of noise.
At first I tried using the change speed tool on audacity, but ti was too much for the program to handle so it kept crashing.
Instead I downloaded Paul’s Extreme Sound Stretch, a program exclusively designed for this purpose, and I managed to render the song into it’s current massive form in a matter of minutes.
