Local music gets its own ambient soundtrack of the day
"The idea of it is pretty simple. I take a small chunk (usually around 100 milliseconds) of the audio file from the start position, and I smear it: first I analyze a sound's frequencies, and then randomize a part of the sounds characteristics and rebuild the chunk. I repeat the same process for another chunk of the audio file, and so on."Except that last point: I really think I did a bang-up job on these, so...
These "smeared chunks" (those numbered segments in this image), are then placed next to each other to elongate the track.
So instead of simply stretching the entire song, the stretches occur in tiny increments. When they overlap, they create a cohesive body of sound.It seems that this time neither the singer nor the DJ, but instead the programmer, deserves the artist's credit.
