Barbie Knows Your Name 2.0

December 6, 2020 11:31 AM

In 2017, I posted this piece (using the Barbie voice samples from this post. At the time, it capped out at around five minutes due to a limitation in the Sonic-Pi, the software I was using. I've now learned enough SuperCollider to be dangerous and as a result have worked around those limitations, producing a full hour-long piece containing all of the names. This is not that piece. It is a shorter version (a Radio Edit, as it were) that doesn't exceed this site's file size limits.

The full piece is available for free from bandcamp split into nine tracks to make an album. (Bandcamp will always let you pay me for this album; I don't recommend it.)

Fun fact: I've listened to the entire (hour long) thing several times now and it's actually... not unpleasant. Which is weird, right? Also, my mind is completely unharmed by the experience.

Wow, this is incredible. I lost it when she said "Jamie Lynn", closely followed by "Raphael", for some reason.

Great idea - you beat me to it. Have this file lurking on my hard drive for a similar musical foray. Maybe one day. Or use it live, perhaps.
