Guy recreates The Downward Spiral using nothing but Frasier clips

Nine Inch Nails The Seattleward Spiral is a from-scratch, mostly-automatic reinterpretation of Trent et al's 1994 The Downward Spiral, using nothing but sliced up audio from the NBC sitcom Frasier. The result is something arguably far more "industrial" in some sense (and far, far less listenable in that same sense) than the original album.

The reconstitution was done using "afromb.py”, a python script that takes two files, the target track a that you're trying to recreate, and the source track b that provides the audio content used for that recreation, and slices both up into very small pieces, assembling the bits of track b one at a time according to whichever piece best matches the current bit of track a.
