"Slothcore: very slow (like 20 - 40bpm), dirty & with long pauses to simulate naps. Perfect music for that overworked college/university student in your life."

I wrote the first #slothcore song on my second day of FAWM, and the genre created by @candle quickly took off, with more than 30 songs as of today. After listening to all the great ideas and seeing how the genre is evolving I wanted to give it another try.

This song is called "Gentle eyes" because it's about sloths. I wrote it using my OP-Z, and since the lowest tempo on the OP-Z is 40 BPM I recorded my performance to cassette tape and played it back at half speed to get it to 20 BPM, together with some tape saturation and hiss.
