Why I love Autotune

Autotune was in my opinion, until recently, the incarnation of what was Wrong with music nowadays. Yes, Wrong with a capital W. A huge m**f**in' W.

I liked to repeat that in the "good old days", we didn't need autotune because sound people were allowed to say thing like "that was flat, you'll have to redo it". And if you couldn't do it, well you didn't get to make an album. That's it, that's all.

Well it seems that every cloud has a silver lining after all.

The Interweebs have been buzzing with little video opuses lately. These videos are made by putting talkies through Autotune to create totally hypnotic pieces.

Here's one of them, the Symphony of Science.

I find this highly shareable. You?
