Hi all

This was sent to me some time ago.
I had no idea that crickets actually sing like humans. For me this shows we are all related, more than we think.

Enjoy:

God damn annoying background music..wish they'd only let the crickets sing..that background music manipulates the effect of the crickets! i say let the crickets sing without added music! i want to hear the unmolested song they sing!

If you listen to the woman talking in the beginning, there is no "background music", it's just the crickets. They used two tracks of the same recording overlapped, one is played at regular speed and the other is a slowed down version.

That was absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing that video.

BestLion,

As Cerridwen already pointed out, there is no background music, it's the crickets' song slowed down to correspond to 'human time'. Also I wrote in the beginning of my post:
I had no idea that crickets actually sing like humans. For me this shows we are all related, more than we think. .

That wouldn't make any sense then, would it?
...and as lovely as it might be to listen to crickets accompanied by music, it's not what I would create a thread for.

I just listened to this wondering where I heard this... It's on Robbie Robertson's Music for Native Americans album. Last track called "Twisted Hair" with Bonnie Jo Hunt singing opera along with the crickets. It's quite beautiful...

That REALLY is sooooo amazing! I never ever could have imagined anything like that!

Thank-you soooo much! Listening to Nature will never be the same (it will be so much more consciously done!) for me!

Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you!

Yes!!

Thanks so much for sharing this!

It sharpens the recollection of one of my early unitive experiences, whose music was eerily similar to the beauty recorded here in this video. I was sitting up meditating all night one summer in the late '60s, after meeting and being instructed by my first Zen teacher a few months prior. I was out in the hill country, and at a certain magical point, all of the night sounds -- most prominent among them being the crickets -- suddenly transformed into a divine symphony, of which I realized I was an equal and inextricable part.

There is no background music ... that is the crickets sounds in concert slowed down to a speed that emulates the crickets lifespan as human, then that track has been overlayed with the cricket sounds at regular speed -- it is all crickets, no music. Listen to and read the intro again - it is explained clearly...no music.

And it is absolutely brilliant. I used to fall asleep to the crickets every night as a kid ...

Thanks!

No there is..a humming sound..and that aint no crickets doing that..its some classical music or something. they need to cut that out and let the crickets sing. Crickets dont hum.thats added..and needs to be cut out to stop the manipulation of this

BestLion, YOU think that crickets don't sing or hum... the purpose of the video is to prove that they, indeed, do. (Get it, now?)

If you don't believe it, that's fine (MorningSong shrugs and shakes head back and forth with arms slightly outstreached with palms up).

Contact the people who did the original registration to complain.... we at Avalon can't do anything about it. Sorry.

That humming sound - the "choir" in the background, resembling "classical music" - those ARE the same crickets.
The original recording has been played in reverse and slowed down - so in that sense, yes, of course it is manipulated. But if we are to believe the author of this 1992 CD, nothing, no artificial sounds, have been added. What you're hearing are the crickets only.

Of course crickets do not "sing" - they rub their wings against their abdomens, if I am not mistaken (I could be), but that's a moot point.
It really is hauntingly beautiful.
Thank you, OP.

Hnmm..Im a bit skeptical on that. ive been around nature many times and heard crickets but they were never humming anything like "The Joy of Mans Desire" before.

That's because in nature you do not hear their song slowed down - considerably - and played in reverse. :)

I am a reader of folklore..and love to read about fairies and the 4th dimension. But this is all 3rd and enhanced via modern equipment of man. If they want to sing a song for us sing it as I say for all the ages..that mean without having to slow down FF. This crickets stuff is MANIPULATED!..means slowed down so we can hear music..its not natural to humans..the Viking of 800 AD would not hear that only through technological manipulation can we hear it...Like I said lets have some music for ALL the ages..not some music we must slow down to hear and can be manipulated. I am sure i can slow down enough music of a baby crying to hear a good melody or frogs chirping and get the same effect.

heres frogs singing UN-MANIPULATED! this is how it should be..this is the beauty of nature..and if nature wishes to show us music it should be without technological manipulations this video in post #1 does. Oddly we dont hear no classical music here but only pure nature...but I am sure the producer of video #1 can surely make this also into Beethovens 9th.

Who are we to judge nature as to "how it should be".? Just because we humans can't hear these sounds, it doesn't negate the reality. Sound is vibration, and this beautiful vibration is wafting through our air just as nature intended it to. So even though I can't hear these vibrations, I now know that they exist. I've always enjoyed crickets chirping, but now I bless those sounds, both heard and unheard, even more.

I did a 10 day vipassana retreat and after 10 days of silence I heard sounds, like what these crickets are making, in my head for an entire day.
Also, I remember George K. in one of his video's saying how he really enjoyed the cricket race e.t.'s. Thanks for sharing the crickets.

just found this...cool!


I wanted to see how far I could take the recordings of bees into the realm of music. The bee produces about 200-230 wing flaps pr. second, which is enough to generate a nice, rich sounding buzz. I recorded a bunch of bee sounds and manipulated them through a variety of tools (including timefreezers, delays, filters, glitch modules etc). I then decided to add some more human elements to it (vocals, guitars, grooves etc) and wrapped it up by adding full symphony orchestra and choirs on it during the end.

Besides the bee sounds - the majority of samples are coming from the tonehammer.com sample catalog.

Hope you enjoy it. Einstein once predicted that the human race would survive no more then 4 years after the extinction of bees due to their keystone role in the entire ecosystem.

Peace out to all the bees and bumbles.

There is a set of tuning forks that I would love to have.
A friend used to own a set and we played with them for awhile one afternoon.
Each fork is tuned to the frequency of a different planet, including our Moon and the Sun.

Here'a another video thay was posted some time ago, I think by Viking (?) that is just wonderful! Nature inspires a musician.... "Birds on the Wire"


One day Jarbas Agnelli was reading his newspaper when he saw a picture of birds on electric wires which immediately fascinated him.. He noticed that the positions of the birds looked like a piece of musical notation. He set about recreating the melody based on where the birds were perched.

He contacted the photographer who had taken the original picture who was also intrigued by the music. He informed his Editor and the whole idea was turned in to a story in the newspaper. Agnelli, spurred on, then created this animation with the photo, the music and the score.

There is absolutely no Photoshop involved here - the melody is created from the exact positions of the birds on the wires. It's a lovely little tune, too!

Here's a video of the author explaining the song (in Brasilian, but you can choose english subtitles) with the orchestrated result:

Wonderful.

I did the exact same thing one day in the 1990s, seeing sparrows occupying my balcony.
There were like thirty of them and they were sitting in all sorts of positions (on the decorative railing), totally resembling notes.

I think I still have the composition somewhere in my first computer.

Hmm, was good wasn't it. All them thar crickets dang luvely corus kewl eh?

Some people will believe anything. Absolutely anything.

So how many of you are going to repeat this exercise and put up onto you tube as confirmation this indeed is what is found when the cricket sound is slowed without any audio manipulation or additions? Have any of you checked the validity of this claim? Would the inclusion of kitten pictures maybe enhance your enjoyment of the sound broadcast? Or even pictures of angels? Maybe a correlation with sacred frequencies be evident?
Where was this recorded? Who recorded it? What equipment and protocols used? Describe the frequencies before and after? What specifically does "slowing down" infer? Can you think of a question . . . ?

Sorry to be party pooper but waking up requires a little more diligence and discernment.

Trust me its not that important to analyze the **** out of something "artistic" so badly it becomes an exercise in merely being the "rightest" ego, without correlation to the enjoyment of the art itself (some people just don't "get" art which is fine - but their comments are obviously the least valuable in regards to art). You and Best Lion should form an "analysis club" -- lol just being facetious ... meant lightly ;)
