Amazing Discovery!! When Slowed Down to a Human-Like Time Frequency Crickets Begin to Sound Like a Choir of Angels !

This is the most amazing thing I’ve ever heard. (Audio of the Crickets)

This is the sound of Crickets chirping.  It is two tracks played over each other.  The first is the sound of the crickets at regular speed, the second is the sound of the crickets slowed down to the equivalent of a human life-span.  Crickets have a very short life span and therefore vibrate at a much higher frequency.  Slow their vibration down to a human level of vibration and they’re famous, high-pitched chirps begin to sound like a literal choir of angels.

The piece was recorded by composer Jim Wilson and is unmanipulated (save for the obvious slow down in tempo.)

Here is a quote from a Tom Waits interview saying the following…

“Q: Most interesting recording you own?

A: It’s a mysteriously beautiful recording from, I am told, Robbie Robertson’s label. It’s of crickets. That’s right, crickets. The first time I heard it… I swore I was listening to the Vienna Boys Choir, or the Mormon Tabernacle choir. It has a four-part harmony. It is a swaying choral panorama. Then a voice comes in on the tape and says, “What you are listening to is the sound of crickets. The only thing that has been manipulated is that they slowed down the tape.” No effects have been added of any kind, except that they changed the speed of the tape. The sound is so haunting. I played it for Charlie Musselwhite, and he looked at me as if I pulled a Leprechaun out of my pocket.”

“I had these messages saying that Robbie Robertson said to get in touch with me. So we went in studio. He said, `I want you to do whatever you feel like. And, now, these are crickets.’ So I thought, oh, my goodness. I’m to accompany crickets, see?

And when I heard them, I was so ashamed of myself, I was so humbled, because I had not given them enough respect. Jim Wilson recorded crickets in his back yard, and he brought it into the studio and went ahead and lowered the pitch and lowered the pitch and lowered the pitch. And they sound exactly like a well-trained church choir to me. And not only that, but it sounded to me like they were singing in the eight-tone scale. And so what–they started low, and then there was something like I would call, in musical terms, an interlude; and then another chorus part; and then an interval and another chorus. They kept going higher and higher.

They were saying cricket words. I kept thinking, `Oh, I almost can understand them. It’s a nice, mellow tone. And they never went off pitch until one of the interludes, where they went real crazy and they got back on again to where they were. And I know that people do not know that they’re listening to crickets unless they’re told that that’s what that is.”

This recording, if accurate, is truly amazing.  The revelation that insects could, at various pitch levels, imitate powerful symphonic works, brings rise to many important questions in regards to the vast, complex network binding nature and the universe.  

There is still much unknown about the physics of sound and the vibrations of nature but more needs to be explored and addressed.  I commend Jim Wilson for his unique contribution to the musical world, perhaps other composers will look into this further.  

There are truly angels among us.

**P.S – upon listening to this for the last half an hour I can say that this is really powerful stuff.  Extremely healing, very calming and meditative.  Very hard to stop listening.



What Happened to Classical Music??

So… Classical music… What the hell happened?

Where did the 500 years of musical imagination predating pop music vanish off to?

It’s funny how little people think about, remember or care for classical music these days.  I think most would find it hard to name or recall a single classical piece.  Beethoven… Which one was he?  He was the deaf one, right?  No he was the one that went crazy…?

I’ll help you out…  All of them went crazy, Beethoven was the deaf one… And this is Bach…

Classical music isn’t as complex or dated as it seems to be.  Just because the men (and they were mostly men) are only known through oil paintings and handwritten letters doesn’t mean they are not still relevant.

Classical music is simply music and as music it will always be relevant.  So long as there is emotion and beauty in the sound than nothing else matters.

Currently there is too much hype in music.  Too much money.  For example…

Puff Daddy, Sean Combs, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Diddy

…I mean, his pour is amazing… But…

Music should always be about the moment; The sound; The emotional impact.  If vibration is the electrical current of the universe than it is true… Music moves us.  It puts us in motion.


If all the supernatural, metaphysical power of music proves to be true than what does that mean about the centuries of music that preceded ours?

What does it say about our classical composers?

They were brilliant.

They constructed worlds and stories told entirely through sound.  The voices in their head would not be silenced and what they created was remarkable.

These composers tortured themselves, literally, just to communicate a message written in sound yet we barely remember them.

The Superheroes






The best storytellers the world ever knew.

Storytellers in sound.

It’s easy to forget about the hundreds of compositions and composers that existed prior to Frank Sinatra.  Lost in the following decades of money and a billion dollar music industry…

But, there is a place for instrumental music, symphonic music and opera in this day and age.  Classical music does not have to only exist in Universities and overpriced concert halls.

It was never intended for that audience.

Meet Modest Mussorgsky…


Does he look like he gives a shit about anything?… This man composed Pictures at an Exhibition and was one of the most influential composers in Russian history.  He was savage, self-taught and blackout drunk almost all the time.

The violinist Paganini thought he was the devil.

Liszt slept with everyone’s girlfriend.

And the rest died of syphilis or something worse.


These weren’t light-hearted people.  These composers were filled with fire, intensity and passion.

As we move towards the future we must take what we know about music structure and the composers that lived before us and push music further.  There is no better way than to learn from the past… So… once in a while…

Put on a classical recording.

And while you do…

Remember that somebody living hundreds of years ago had a musical thought so powerful they were compelled to grab the nearest feather pen and wet ink and spend years out of their life to write down this composition so that one day, hundreds of years later, it could be performed solely for you…

…It’s trippy to think about…
