We don't know how this happened, but it's incredible.
Composer Jim Wilson claims he recorded crickets making their normal, cricket-y sounds and found that for some reason, after slowing down the recording, it sounds like a human chorus. He calls the recording "God's Chorus Of Crickets."
Though Wilson claims his masterpiece is made solely from a chorus of the cricket variety, others have tried to replicate the sound to no avail, unable to replicate the major scale that Wilson achieves. Skeptics believe Wilson manipulated his cricket noises to create a major scale melody. Below, hear a cricket chorus by another artist that is unarguably more cricket-like.
Is there a microscopic soprano trapped inside every cricket? Or is Wilson's aural illusion all a hoax? Let us know in the comments.
