Hey guys! I found this article at facebook some days ago and I was amazed. It talked about a music composer called Jim Wilson, who took the sound of crickets and slowed it down. The results were an amazing sound that is very close to an angelical chorus.

You can listen to it here:

However, I found a new article in which is explained that there is also a human voice there, check it out:

"So yes, you are listening to two cricket tracks: crickets at normal speed (in Jim Wilson’s backyard), crickets slowed down with the pitch dropped (by Wilson and possibly Robbie Robertson), but it’s also accompanied by Bonnie Jo Hunt‘s beautiful, human singing. Still beautiful, still fascinating, but not just crickets alone!
And that’s an amazing sound that deserves to go viral, but please be aware that not everything you read on the internet is what it’s advertised to be!"

Full article: LINK


So.. is this fake? is this 50% fake? or what? By the way, I still like the track and the idea of inviting crickets to sing on a song.

This is the biggest hoax ever. biggrin.gif Just think about it. It's all different notes but the crickets do not produce that kind of sound.

Here's a guy who disproved this:

Sounds pretty cool, but yeah just a hoax... which they lied about. I would actually like it, if it wasn't for that fact, that they claim it as something it's not.

What next, mermaids discovered on camera (Mermaid Hoax), aliens/ufos mistaken from the US governments own illegal stealth drones spying on other countries (till shot down - this has been going on for years). Or the biggest and best hoax in the world which people still follow regardlessly - the Piltdown Man (ape-man), badly gluing together a jaw an Ape with that of a 500 year old humans skull to prove us humans are nothing but monkeys dated by actual scientists to be as old as 500,000+ years ago (accepted and unquestioned for over 50 years, and to date evolved into other faiths which people base their entire life upon). Just to go how far humans will go for a bit of fame, control and cash.
