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.

This is one of my favorite TV shows ever. The theme isn’t the catchiest, but it really fits the entire mood of the show. I love how confusing this was to figure out.
