The longest audio project ever or hold on a second?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Okay we are recording at 133 beats per minute in continuous quarter notes fashion untill one trillion notes are played...is this the longest song ever made or just not that impressive for an OPUS?

 

HINT: Depends on your location....

 

Let's discuss this musical math problem!(here now below comment!) ;) This should be fun! ;) >>>---->SLF2024USA1<----<<<

First off we’d need a computer that would last thousands of years just to record a song that long not to mention a medium to capture all that info.  

Second, I feel that this may be a trick question.  But even at risk of looking like a fool, I’ll give a quick logical answer for the sake of getting the conversation going.

Assuming we’re all in the same place observing this (co-movers therefore having our clocks synchronized, not having to account for time dilation (closer you get to the speed of light time slows down) or how close to the singularity a second observer is), from a math standpoint might break down like this: (assuming the quarter note gets one beat 4/4

1,000,000,000,000 quarter notes

/133 beats per minute

=7,518,796,922.481203 minutes long

 /60 min per hour

=125,313,283.2070201 hours long

/24 hours a day

= 5,221,386.800334169 days

/ 365.2422 in a year (leap years included)

=14,295.68324890763 years.

Seems like a long time with no Tempo variations.  😳🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

Very impressive 9_9

Too bad we wont be alive to hear the outro and fade out :D

Gives a whole new meaning to the saying "the party ain't over"... 🤣

 

14,000+ years eh??

Sheesh... And most current songs are boring after the 2nd set of repeats...LOL

Where's the break?😋

I wonder if anyone from good old U.K. has answered the question to give us some perspective on how big this opus is or isn't...I think it will get MUCH longer!  - S

 

Remeber, it depends on your location...perhaps time also!

*Pfft...*  That's nothing!

 

I've covered John Cage's 4:33 on both kazoo AND vuvuzela!  (Including handling all vocals in 14 different languages at the same time!)

Heh, I saw that too, but wasn't going to point it out!  LOL.

I stand corrected. Make no bones about it. I guess I have to bone up on my old Trek history so I don't pull another boner.

If you'd have asked me before 1974, I'd have said a trillion notes would always be longer in the UK... but then again, I might not have had too much of an opinion in 1974...

If you're confused... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trillion

No worries!  See, you're a musician trying to talk like a nerd, while I'm just a nerd mis-using musical instruments! 🤣
