A really long time ago I saw a post where someone on 4chan took whole albums and either slowed down or sped up the left channel by .2% and uploaded them to pirate sites as an Elaborate Ruse.
They uploaded a version of "The Mother We Share" as an example but I could never find it again so I recreated it and you get to listen to the beautiful mess that is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxtIT_CABpU
I love how fucked up this song is when Lauren says "and when it all fucks up"
@funkeh is this gonna break my brain be honest
@toilet most likely
@funkeh its already terrible
@toilet thank you <3
@funkeh alright lets see
@funkeh WHATS GOING ON
@funkeh IM SCARED AND INTIMIDATED
@funkeh the kinda funny thing is that it sounds like a really wide spatializer (since those just delay one channel by a few ms to make stuff sound More Stereo), but it gradually gets more and more horrifying as the channels drift
@er1n ah yeah, i see it! it starts off as a cool effect, the only issue being that it eventually becomes a portal to the underworld
@funkeh I think the worst part is between like 1:00 and 1:40 where it's too obviously wrong to ignore but your brain is still trying to put it back together involuntarily and it just carries on sliding out of sync
@funkeh i fuckin love this
