The Slow Music Movement

First slow food, now this {npr}:

Back in August, a recording of Justin Bieber’s “U Smile” went mega-viral on YouTube, earning over 1 million hits.

But it wasn’t the original song — it was a version slowed down by more than 800 times its original speed.

The slow version sounds cosmic and ethereal. Last week, a similar recording went viral, this time a stretched version of the theme from the movie Jurassic Park. Listeners compared it to the early work of Brian Eno.
