An interesting musical experiment by musician Steve-san ‘Samurai Guitarist’ Onotera.

What he’s done here is perform an incredibly slow instrumental cover of Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles, taking a full half hour (appropriately, either side of dawn) to pick all the notes. He then speeds up the recording by a factor of 20, approximating the speed of the original.

The result is a strange, not unpleasing modulated violin effect.

Steve-san discusses it in more detail here.

A very pleasing short by London based animator and wildlife fan Will Rose. To wit:

Eagle Blue lives high on a mountain top above a sleepy town below. With hungry chicks to feed she may lured in to the town by the temptation of an easy meal. Set to the music ‘This is a True Heart’ by Julia Holter.
