Spectrogram

The full spectrogram, formed from the silences of every countdown video

The 77 Days Video Countdown, a.k.a. the Countdown, 77 Days or the Days, was an event on the Pronunciation Book YouTube Channel, running for 77 days from July 9th until September 24th. It may be considered the sequel to the mission narrative.

OverviewEdit

The Countdown consisted of a new video ("How to Pronounce X") being uploaded to the channel every day, at the same time (2pm UTC), the dialogue of each (bar 77 and Horse_ebooks) being comprised of a unique message ending with a statement that "Something is going to happen ... in X days". In both cases, X represents the number of days of the countdown left.

Every video would also have ~15 seconds of silence punctuated by audio static (noise) following the dialogue, which it was discovered formed a special image when analysed with audio-spectrographic software (the Spectrogram, shown right).
