Suppose Shamantis just awakened the early 21st century's Scott Walker.

It's funny, all the comments I was reading tagged on to that audio file... people will literally not only listen to but eat up positively anything with a spoon. And lick said spoon, eat it up yum.

It's slowed down Justin Bieber. Negativland this ain't.

A slight correction: The Bieber remixes were done with PaulStretch and it doesn't speed up audio -- it goes from realtime up to 1000-fold stretch. There are other programs (Soundforge, Wavelab come to mind) that can speed up samples, but the result would be unrecognizable. PaulStretch works by using FFT to analyze the spectral information in overlapping windows into the audio, which it crossfades through; it's an inherently destructive operation (in the information-theoretical sense of the word) and while the time dilation could be reversed the result would only be distantly related to the original.

As it happens I did a port of PaulStretch for the Macintosh, if you're one of those 'different thinkers' and don't want to mess with a Windows PC to make your own titanic epic:
