Week 4 pt. 1: Let’s Slow Things Down a Bit

The goal of this assignment was to create a piece of ambient music by slowing down an existing song by around 800%. As I was flipping through my Spotify, I came across Ride by 21 Pilots. While the beginning has a couple sharp drum attacks, which I knew wouldn’t take kindly to being slowed down, I felt the tune would produce interesting results.

Stars: 4

Process: After grabbing the mp3 of the song, I loaded it into Adobe Audition. I applied the Stretch & Pitch process, setting the song length to be 800% of the original version. I then selected the first 2 minutes and saved them to upload in the interest of SoundCloud storage space.
