audio music


In the dim and distant past EchoNest offered some fascinating APIs for manipulating audio data. One delightful service was ‘swingification’ – unfortunately Facebook bought EchoNest and shut down all the fun.

I just stumbled on a cache of swingified songs I made back in early 2016.

Some work better than others, enjoy.
