about

Inspired by Leif Inge's 9 Beet Stretch, which stretches Beethoven's 9th Symphony to 24 hours in length, 9 beet superstretch slows the music down by another multiple of 24, to 24 days, or 576 hours.

Day 1 begins the 1st movement, which will last a total of 5 and a half days.

Silence is an important part of the music of Beethoven's 9th Symphony. The beginning of the Symphony, for example, slowly emerges from silence. I have preserved the periods of silence in the source recording, also stretching them to over 500 times their original length. The first track of day 1 begins with several minutes of silence, and the music emerging from this slowed down silence, very faint at first, takes several more minutes to build to a climax
