One day composer Jim Wilson decided to record the sound of crickets – you know those chirpy insects that emit quite a soothing (if frequent) buzzing sound.
He slowed the recording down to such a level that suddenly those chirpy noises started to sound more and more like a choir of human voices. The slower the recording became, the more it appeared as if the crickets themselves were singing in beautiful and perfect harmony. No music, no instruments, no effects added
Who would have thought, that listening to the noises of an animal in such a non-conventional way, would unearth such a human and almost ethereal sound?
Listen for yourself:
When slowed down cricket sing songs that sound strangely like humans singing. WEIRD.
