Playing with youtube playback speed! :-) (Article ID: 34 - republished on Tue 24/12/2019 from tumblr)
Let’s choose a nice video on youtube: “George Frideric Handel - The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba”! Let’s experiment with the playback speed of this video: PLAYBACK SPEED = normal speed (1.0) : everything is… normal! speed = 0.75, the track sounds OK despite the slow tempo. It’s beautiful! speed = 1.25, very quick but… goooood!!! Wonderful Handel! speed = 0,5 , well… this is too slow dude! It’s kind of frozen! speed = 0,25, well… it sounds like Stockhausen! :-))) speed = 1.5, too quick to listen, a parody perhaps… speed = 1.75, kind of Benny Hill show… speed = 2.0, kind of quick Benny Hill show… Now, find out for yourselves!
