9 Beet Stretch – Leif Inge

 Every Sunday I am going to bring you something a little more downtempo to ease you back into the world.

Okay, so, today, something extremely different.

This is less song, more sound-art. To a lot of people, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony is pretty instantly recognisable. Artist Leif Inge took the composition (which normally lasts 70 minutes) and stretched it to last a full 24 hours without any distortion of pitch. What results is in an incredibly cinematic piece, with unimaginably deep texture and nuance. If you want to switch off, or go to another mental plane, this should be your soundtrack.
