Press Play: “God’s Chorus of Crickets” Jim Wilson’s recording of crickets slowed way down

Reynold-Ruffins-Push-Pin-Animalarium

Composer Jim Wilson recorded the song of crickets and then slowed the tape way down… and the resulting melody is more than a wee bit remarkable… listen for yourself – the composer claims that everything on the tape is only the crickets. On the tape posted here there are two tracks: one of the crickets as they sound and one is of the same track but slowed down.

You can buy the original recording here: www.amazon.com/Gods-Chorus-Crick…=viglink124132-20

    When I was in Paris 2005, I could not visit the Louvre. But the Louvre came with sound recording equipment, which were kindly provided by the French. Found the “Mona Lisa” and began recording background sound created numerous visitors who came to see the masterpiece. The logic was simple. Allow myself to be noted that any masterpiece has the property of highly structured information field. Man – this is also, at its basis, the field structure. There is a contact of two field structures – human and masterpiece. This is probably the power of art. The sounds published the people who were in the masterpiece (talk, the shuffling of feet, etc.) were very valuable to me, they were correlated associated with him. Subjecting these records complicated transformation process, I managed to get some incredible sound. Many are led into shock – these sounds there is a clear identification with the portrait of “Mona Lisa.” Similar records I’ve made in the famous sculpture of Venus. As a result, based on these records, I had three works – “Knowledge”, “Flow” and “Communication”.

    Structure of presented video: sound background at Mona Lisa – result of transformational processing of a background, a sound background at Venus – result of transformational processing of a background, a work “Knowledge” fragment (the transformed sounds are used only).
