If you follow us on Twitter, you might already have seen this, so… watch it again! Take five, put on headphones, and give yourself over to Slowturn! (be warned there is a little strobing in this).

What the heck is this?

This little number is our beloved theme tune slowed down so much it sounds like you’ve been kidnapped by a UFO.

I liked it so much I decided to throw together some video art. I chose the most hypnotic and made them deliberately low-res and pixel-jaggy and synced them up with the noise. I like to think of the carp as being a deliberate switch up of perspective such as you might get in a space station with novel gravity orientations. And please, please, don’t lose yourself in the waterfall. You have been warned.

All the visuals were made from free CC0 assets from the amazing Pexels video site. The audio timewarp was done in Audacity, and the video in VSDC – all open source and free to use if you’re thinking of having a go!

And if you do make your own video art with a vaguely SFF theme, why not link it in the comments?
