Let’s get started on these audio assignments! For the first one I’m doing Make it 800% Slower, which entails, as might be expected, making a song 8 times slower. Since most songs hover around the 3-5 minute mark, most of them end up around 24-40 minutes when stretched out. Naturally, I decided to use the longest song I have on my computer, Human Sadness by Julian Casablancas+The Voidz.

It ended up being a staggering hour and twenty-seven minutes long. The file’s over 80MB. Fortunately, it looks like recent versions of Audacity have directly incorporated Paulstretch, so I didn’t need to use any third-party software to stretch the song out like this. I think it turned out really nicely! It’s super ambient and ethereal, even moreso than the original song. Now I dare you to listen to the entire thing.
