makng ang audio track sound like it has come to a stop

I want to illustrate the idea of the heat death of the universe. Visually this is simple...the screen goes black.

However I want to illustrate it audibly by the sound of me saying "The heat death of the universe", sounding like it is a record that comes to a halt. I've tried stretching the audio so it slows down but that is not the right sound...the sound has got to get deeper.

Anyone have any ideas on how this could be accomplished?

i'd simply cut 'universe' to 'uni...' then a 1hz tone as in blank transmission.

Uuummmm...I've never been this way before.

'A 1 hz tone as in blank transmission'. Not sure I know what that means.

The sentence needs to be decipherable but wind down in speed and tone... like a turning record on a turn table coming to a halt due to the weight of the needle or the power to the turn table being turned off.

I'm pretty sure Audacity can do this for you
Select the snippet of Audio you want and the use Sliding Time Scale / Pitch Shift.

I have Goldwave audio editor which can do most things apparently, so I'll try that in there.

Thanks.

I just did it in Sound Forge with Pitch Bend. Works nice - UPLOAD issue with WAV, now in ZIP:

Re: making an audio track sound like it has come to a stop

Well...I've got more or less what I wanted via Goldwave. It doesn't have a 'sliding time scale' nor anything like keyframes that I can see, but it does have pitch and time, both affecting the whole file or selections.

Thus with the phrase 'the heat death of the universe', I was able attribute to each word a progressively lower pitch which basically gave me what I was after...
