This is a spectrogram of Blackstar. while i was listening to it i had this weird feeling and wanted to run it through the spectrogram program. Do you guys see text at around 4:30, it was during this eerie off-tune part of the song, I don't know maybe I'm seeing what I want to see.

Also RIP David
>>
Fuck you guys are idiots. The guys dead. If he wanted to reveal some secret he'd have wrote a fucking letter.
>>
RIP in peace Mr. Bowie. Lots of folks say you are burning in hell right now for being a homosexual, Satan worshipping drug addict. You were always cool in my book though.
>>

But, let's be honest: If the christians have it right... Bowie, You are probably fucked.
>>
>>17208467
Besides his "lifestyles" was he really all that blasphemous? I will never be a rock god, but I assume when you can have any woman you want for so long, a little guy on guy spices it up.
>>
you idiots on /x/ dont get its, black star, Lazarus, it was him saying goodbye, he knew he was dying when he made this album.
Everyone thought it was just typical bowie being a weirdo but then he died and it all makes sense now.


Lazarus (David Bowie)


Look up here, I’m in heaven

I’ve got scars that can’t be seen

I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen

Everybody knows me now
Look up here, man, I’m in danger

I’ve got nothing left to lose

I’m so high it makes my brain whirl

Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain’t that just like me
By the time I got to New York

I was living like a king

Then I used up all my money

I was looking for your ass
This way or no way

You know, I’ll be free

Just like that bluebird

Now ain’t that just like me
Oh I’ll be free

Just like that bluebird

Oh I’ll be free

Ain’t that just like me

OP here, I like Bowie as well and mean no disrespect i just wanted some clarification on a part of one of his last songs.
>>
>>17208489
I spectrogrammed Lazarus and nothing was awry, but to be honest, if anyone didn't know that he was saying goodbye in this song even before he died, they might have some intelligence issues. He called it a parting gift the day the album released.

He had cancer for 18 months guys, and his album was a clear goodbye.

>>17208570
Bowie had cancer for eighteen months, m8. Bowie may not have known he would have died two days after his birthday, yet he knew his time here on earth was near it's expiration date. And he trudge through it all, fought like a lion. And gave the fans his final swan song, a gift in the form of an album - Blackstar.

He prepared it all. His affairs he had here? Set them straight. It's not uncommon for someone to do the same when they know they can kick the can and croack over like a frog at any minute. Death comes for you during uncertain times. And until then, you have to get ready to accept it all, which Bowie did came to accept Death's indifferent and cold embrace.

You suffer from two symptoms. The first is called faggotry, where OP continue to be a faggot. And the second, is called pareidolia. You want to see something there or believe there is a hidden message beyond a deadman song and your brain is deceiving you.

imo that crucified man is supposed to be one of the old messianic cults. You have the Jewish Messianists / Kabbalists (represented by an man in Orthodox Jewish clothing), Masons (represented by a white man in a black and white shirt, center stage), and Sinister/Gnostic cults (represented by a woman and on stage left of all three). This is a "true god" coming to overturn the false ideologies (blind straw-men) of would be world rulers.

As for what it is, that's anyone's guess, but it was called through the head of an astronaut manifested by a woman. Possibly the second coming? Or just straight-up aliens?

The other thing of note: the "solitary candle" is at the bottom of a stairway, not the top. That alone is fairly subversive.

It's a board about the 'paranormal' and it's most usual threads are ones asking how to make aliens, bigfoot and skinwalkers fall in love with you.

If there are people who lurk here to throw cold water on the idea that musicians hide messages in their music (which is a proven fact) then I say they are likely a shill, because I'm so stupid I can't imagine why they'd do a thing as low as staying in this place arguing against the most reasonable topics. Is it a coping mechanism, or is it logic?
>>
>>17213096
There is no right or wrong, especially when people jizz out their opinion on another. To qualify another as wrong is to admit someone is right, in which case, someone's ego is getting fueled.

1:21-1:23 "Lucifer" had to turn on the spatialiser to get this, playing in regularx1 and this way it's very clear.
1:33-1:35 "i'm asleep in the willow"
1:37-1:40 "this career's been run" hahah
1:55-1:57 "Lucifer" same as 1:21
2:07-2:10 "<achkt> Here is the last words" playing at 0.31x; perhaps it is 'the lost's words'
2:11-2:15 - "They're more for an invalid"

that he would at some point die? So far, everyone no longer alive have died. Doesn't really count as a prediction if it wasn't more specific.

Turned 90 degrees counter clockwise. Immediately read "Rotherham".
>>
It could be an audio watermark. You can't really hear it but depending on the type it can show up in spectrograms.

Most common in sample packs (drums, keys, etc) but commercial releases have started using them too, especially with promotional/pre-release and pre-masters. These days you can create an almost inaudible (sounds like very slight distortion, most people won't pick it up since modern tracks are mastered so loud anyway) spectral watermark.

That said they're typically in the 1-3kHz range, not the whole audible spectrum. If you can actually hear something in the song, then it could be something else.

>I can never be wrong because there is no truth lol

>>17214617
It's pareidolia. You see patterns that look vaguely like letters and assume it's words.
You hear sounds that kind of sound like words and you make sentences out of it.

Even if Bowie was hiding messages in his music, it's not paranormal.
If he had any big paranormal secret to share he would have done it publicly, knowing he was about to die anyway.
>>
>>17217493
Sir,

I don't know if you are familiar with the album. I might be the first to tell you that he ends it by saying "I can't give it all away" a few times.

Being a Bowie listener, I understand that he is talking about himself. The "it" here is not his life, or his love, or anything personal. He is talking about some esoteric knowledge. He is trying to tell you something, while he is telling you that it will be blatant.

Take a couple weeks, listen to everything twice. Not everything is pareidolia. Does pareidolia explain the beatles "number 9." The beatles told everyone they recorded it backwards. Does pareidolia explain Heath Ledger's perfect depiction of the tarot's "hanged man" on screen before his death?

Is there a term for when people like you see pareidolia everywhere. Possibly schizophrenia applies, possibly ignorance applies. It is well known that mass media is laced with all sorts of shit. It always has been, and always will be.

When "the chemical wedding" came out as a Rosicrucian treatise, I'm sure there were plenty of people like you saying it didn't mean anything. When ozzy recorded "mr. crowley" I'm sure he wasn't talking about Aleister, right?

When bowie sang

"I'm closer to the Golden Dawn / Immersed in Crowley's Uniform" on Hunky Dory, there's no way he was talking about the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, right?

There may be nothing in the spectrogram, but at least admit there is something more to this album than music.
