Sllllooooowwww Down, Beethoven

For my at-work listening today, I am giving an ear to 9 Beet Stretch. It's a project that took Beethoven's 9th symphony and digitally slowed it down (without changing the pitch) so that it lasts for 24 hours. It sounds sort of like new-age / ambient music, but with a strange edge, and more development than that music usually has. I'm about 20 minutes into the first movement (which, I guess, is actually something like 1 minute into the original). All I can say is: whoa.
