Late night fun with glitches

Last night I was driving home down I-5 and the notoriously, uh, imperfect, Bluetooth connection to the stereo in my old Subaru Forester glitched out in a fabulous way leading to Kraftwerk’s Autobahn album getting played at 50% speed.

 

Ok, that was so cool I’ve gotta share. I slowed these tracks in Audacity for the same effect. Then I tried to upload them via WordPress but found it’s stuck with an 8 meg upload size limit and I don’t feel like troubleshooting that right now so I threw ’em on der aktiv-schaum. Then I googled the wordpress upload limit and…. BROKE GOOGLE.

COMPUTER MALTHUNCTION MALFUNNYTHINKIN….

Mitternacht wound up sounding like something that belongs as haunted house ambience:

The title track, Autobahn, just… took on whole new dimensions of weird.

I was also treated to a weird stuttering flanging thing happening when I tried to play an Aphex Twin track through it, which eventually stopped as my phone simply gave up on sending Bluetooth audio. Oh well.
