'Alphabet Aerobics' is a pretty interesting track. I made it decidedly less interesting using some python signal processing libraries to make the whole track a constant tempo.

The blog post includes a link to the original and the python source code.

I really enjoyed that! It was interesting to hear an alternate version of the song, but I liked the constant tempo version on its own merits, too. Probably partially because I have heard the normal version before, and if you have done that, it's interesting to hear more clearly what he's saying near the end of the song.

Listening to this right now, it's making me giggle. I've heard this often enough to anticipate when the beat steps up, and... it... never... quite... does....

Ha yeah! I've listened to this version often enough now that I get surprised both ways. It's pretty interesting playing with expectations like that. It's also pretty interesting to me to hear the time stretching artifacts get gradually more noticeable too as the song goes on!
