The Guns N’ Roses Self-Similar Midi Synth is Guns n’ Roses songs made up of sped-up samples of entire Guns n’ Roses songs. How it works:

First, We took the recordings of several Guns N’ Roses songs, from the albums “Appetite for Destruction” (1987), “GN’R Lies” (1988), and “Use Your Illusion I and II” (1991). We sped up these recordings exponentially until the tempo of the song became a pitched frequency. This is generally in the area of 480 times faster than normal playback speed (at this speed a song that lasts 4 minutes would be over in 0.5 seconds). Then we take these short sounds use them as samples to play back midi files of various Guns N’ Roses songs. For instance, the GNR Self-Similar version of Sweet Child O’ Mine may use the entirety of November Rain as its snare drum sound and the entirety of Patience for a note in Axl’s voice. In this way, we can make Guns and Roses songs that are made up of very small Guns N’ Roses songs, which could reveal themselves under a sonic microscope, yet are too fast to hear in the actual final product.

Paradise City and Sweet Child O’ Mine are available.

This is a lot cooler than I was expecting. Boy does that webpage’s design take me back, though. They have the rotating 3D skulls!
