Default Listen to 100 White Albums played at once!

So get this:

This dude recorded 100 vinyl pressings of the Beatles' "White Album" and overlaid them into one single track.

The result? Terror-inducing, echoing, trippy, fuck-your-shit-up music.

I know what you'll be thinking when you hear the first track ("Back in the USSR") : what's the difference?

Oh, just wait til you get to "Dear Prudence".

And the rest of the clip (which sadly only covers the first 24 minutes). It's making me sort of sick to my stomach because I don't think I can comprehend all of these sounds at once.


Check it out.

As it progresses it becomes more and more different.

I liked this a lot, I had the same idea with Magical Mystery tour and played it from my stereo and from my computer to great effect (I got the idea from the five phonographs in Ellison's Invisible Man), but it was nothing like this. This is the coolest thing that someone with the name Rutherford could have done .

Sound quality is absolute crap, and I get that it sounds more atmospheric, but it isn't atmospheric in a good way. It goes from sounding normal to sounding like it was recorded in Ringo's garage or something.

The first minute was tolerable, then by Dear Prudence you notice the drift, and it changed the intro to something unrecognizable. Glass Onion beginnings like a reverse echo as more and more albums catch up to the fastest record. When you get to Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da it is an utter mess. It sounds like someone it playing it at the end of terribly long hall but worse or some kid recorded through a bunch of delay pedal. It isn't anything, it isn't creative or experimental or trippy just weird. I couldn't take more than ten minutes of it.

Once you get to "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" you can hardly tell what song it is.

I actually felt sick to my stomach after listening for about 15 minutes.

yeah I don't think it's normal. He should of tried something different like over-dub himself playing drums over Ringos' drumming ... oh wait Paul did that.

The thing I don't really understand is why each copy wasn't identical.

Are all records literally different from one another even if it's the same recording?

Each play on a turntable would have slightly different speeds.
