about

A set of conceptually stretched sounds.

Track 1: Carl Sagan saying the word "billion" once during the first episode of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, stretched to last one hour.

Track 2: The opening chord to the Beatles' "A Hard Days Night" stretched to last one hour. Sample recorded from vinyl album.

Track 3: The slap bass bumper used as a scene transition on the television show Seinfeld, stretched to the average length of an episode of Seinfeld without commercials.

Track 4: All the non-vocal musical passages from Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" (exactly one minute of raw material) stretched to last for an hour.

Cover Art: a 1500x1500ppi image of the cover of "Jane Fonda's Workout Record" (1981) with a 500 pixel horizontal motion blur. Typeface: Eurostile Extended (bold and regular) with 500pt tracking.

All sounds stretched with Paulstretch. I know it's not impressive virtuosity. That's not the point.
