Dan Deacon layered 'Call Me Maybe' 147 times (and it sounds bonkers) Experimental musician remixes Carly Rae Jepsen’s wonderful acapella by processing it into infinity.
Every year or so, a pop song is remixed by an experimental musician, and the song goes viral. In 2010, it was Justin Beiber 800% slower, the year before it was Oneohtrix’s echo jams. Summer 2012 has Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe, layered 147 times by wonderful Baltimore experimental pop artist Dan Deacon.
Carly’s song – featuring what could well be the pop chorus of the year, amiright? – is digitally looped over and over again, in the round style. There’s a sugary peak at around the 1.30 minute mark, before the mind-fracturing hits from three minutes.
It’s taken from a 43-track set of remixes of Call Me Maybe by experimental artists, and Dan Deacon will release his terrific album ‘America’ on August 27th.
And because this piece of sound art will make you want to listen to Call Me Maybe even more than usual, here’s the original below.
