I took a one second clip of an audio recording of the tornado roar in Joplin, MO and stretched, remixed, and layered it back together, kind of the opposite synthesis method to granulization. This is using some of what I learned while making the tweets soundscape and while remixing the July 29 Todos Somos Arizona civil disobedience action against Wackenhut in LA. I hope no one thinks this is belittling the tragedy, it is just that the sounds inside the tornado are somewhat awesome in the older sense of the word.

Here is the clip that provided all the fuel for the remix. Nothing added soundwise to the remix other than what is in this one second.

And here is the remix, done in Ubuntu using Tapestrea and Audacity:
