Stretch over Beethoven

The Norwegian conceptual artist Leif Inge has stretched Beethoven’s Ninth without pitch distortion to create an electro-acoustic concert lasting 24 hours. This makes for a fascinating experience of time perception. The piece has been performed from New York to Shanghai, often leading to the formation of communities of people who lasted the whole 24 hours (with the occasional nap).
