Crickets, Chorus of the Gods

Not sure which forum to put this in.

This is two recordings of crickets, overlaid. One is at real-time speed, the other has been slowed down.

Apparently the recording has been around for some decades (Snopes writeup: God ‘s Chorus of Crickets).

Though it may sound like a synthesizer or a chorus singing; it’s the crickets themselves slowed way down, creating the effect of a choir of human voices. The sound created is a simple diatonic 7-note scale chord progression and melody with a multi-layered structure.
Creepy but beautiful sounds.
