Rollover Eno, Justin Bieber’s Ambient Epic

In the tradition of John Oswald’s Plunderphonics and Hans Zimmer’s recent slo-mo take on Edith Piaf’s rendition of “Non, je ne Regrette Rien,” in Inception, here’s a song by pop sensation, Justin Bieber, “U Smile” slowed down 800% by an artist who records as Shamantis.

Think Brian Eno‘s Music for Airports “2/1″ and “1/2″, Sigur Ros, or any number of New Age albums by artists with names like Aeoliah.

Here’s Shamantis’ “U Smile 800% Slower“

Here’s Justin Bieber’s original, adrenaline pumped version (relatively speaking).  Zip to 1:20 for the actual song.:

The question one might consider, as proposed by guitarist Jeff Pearce, “If you speed up Sigur Ros, will they sound like Justin Bieber?
