We’re all familiar with the peaceful sound of a “chorus” of crickets chirping away on a warm summer evening. But as one composer discovered when he slowed down a recording of chirping crickets, the insects’ songs bare an uncanny resemblance to an actual human choir. Take a listen below:The recording contains two tracks played simultaneously. One is an un-manipulated recording of the insects. The other is the same recording slowed way down, highlighting the transformation from bug sounds to beautiful harmonies. Explains composer Jim Wilson, “I discovered that when I slowed down this recording to various levels, this simple familiar sound began to morph into something very mystic and complex…almost human.”You can purchase a copy of the project, titled God’s Chorus Of Crickets, here.
