This is a recording of crickets. Nothing by humans. There are two tracks playing simultaneously, one at normal speed, and one slowed way down - they said the ratio was that of a cricket's lifespan to that of a human, but that would be maybe 200X, which seems too much. I was flabbergasted.

Interesting harmonics in there, and some curiously precise intervals given that the sound is produced through stridulation. Very beautiful, thank you!

This is the kind of beautiful thing that makes assholes turn around and claim that god and angels exist.

Seems legit and I can believe it, I'm already convinced that thousands of other species of Earthlings appreciate beauty some how.

Love this heavenly song! God is such an amazing Creator. As a friend said to me: This must be what the Father hears.

Where are those Buddhist Kammaṭṭhāna when you need them.

Here's a winter wren(NA bird) singing. A very complex song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0rXY80VQ68
