A surprising cocktail of sound

I’m sure it’s happened to you. Your browser unexpectedly closes, and when you decide to restore all your tabs, you’ve got a sudden influx of sound coming from multiple places. Maybe it’s that Netflix movie you were halfway through, some random YouTube video, or a song. Due to my habit of having maybe 30 tabs open at a time, it becomes this mad scramble to figure out where the sound is coming from and to slowly restore silence.

Well that happened to me this morning. But instead of being annoyed, I found that the combination of videos was actually quite pleasant. They were two things that ordinarily would never be together: an Audacity instructional video and Bon Iver’s new single, “Calgary.” But for some reason it worked. (That Audacity woman has such a soothing voice, no?)

Here they are.  You can play them at the same time or separately. Your choice. I’d recommend clicking play on Bon Iver and then immediately clicking play on Audacity. I just wish they were the same length!
