Someone Slowed Down Crickets and they Sound Like an Angel Choir

Composer Jim Wilson recorded crickets and slowed down the track to reveal a beautiful sound.

Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts – you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”

Brilliant. Hilarious. Perfect adult humor for Twitter. Why can’t toilet jokes be funny and PG-13?

While profusely apologizing to their followers who tweeted, they also posted this apology noting both the agency and employee were fired.

The iLoud is here – the best way to jam on the go

I’ve been a fan of IK Multimedia for years now and am pretty pumped about their new iLoud portable stereo speaker. If you’re like me and always jam on the go, you’ll know that the toughest part is being able to hear the music you’re making clearly.

From hotel rooms to the back of tour buses and trains, a jam can start anywhere. Unlike other portable speakers, the iLoud gives you the ability to not only play back your own music from an iPhone or iPod, but plug in your guitar or keyboard and start playing along. Read the rest of this entry
