9 Beet Stretch

I'm going to keep this short, as it's late, though this recommendation doesn't need a lot of introduction.

9 Beet Stretch is an adaptation of Beethoven's 9th Symphony by an artist called Leif Inge. Leif has taken an original recording of the 9th and time-stretched it, so that the original piece is now 24 hours in length.

The work by Leif was originally presented at the Norweigan network for Technology, Acoustics and Music (NOTAM).

This time stretching has been done with absolutely no pitch distortions and the piece is a fantastic ambient piece. It takes a while to get started, but I think it is worth spending a little time listening to.

You can either tune in to a continual 24 hour audio webstream by going here:

or you can download all of the the piece in mp3 format here:
