Nerd Alert! Jurassic Park Theme (1000% Slower)

Somebody sent this through to me and it was too good for me not to share. Basically, some on-line genius by the name of birdfeeder came up with the idea of slowing John Williams’ iconic Jurassic Park theme down to one-tenth of its regular speed. This sounds like something that could just be incredibly banal, slowing down a beloved piece of film music almost beyond recognition. However, slowing the track down reveals just how beautifully crafted Williams’ score is – the end result is a wonderful ambient arrangement which sounds almost choral at points.

If you’re a fan of film music, give it a listen here, or click the picture below.

  1. Too funny! I actually just listened to this great theme last night. Gotta rewatch the movie again.

  2. Wow! It’s dreamy and strange and quite beautiful. Can’t quite believe that’s the same piece of music from Jurassic Park.

    • Yep, iIfind myself spotting certain cues, but it just seems so much grander and more elegant. This is the CD you’d listen to while driving across the island, as opposed to taking in the highlights via helicopter, almost. It’s a testament to how skilfully Williams constructs his music that when you break it down like this there’s so much going on.
