Cricket Chorus

When I was studying acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine our class was very small and we became a close family.  One day my friend Ara brought in the audio recording of crickets for all of us to hear.  We did not know what to expect and when we heard this our eyes filled and an air of amazement and connectedness filled the room.  I have never forgotten it.

The crickets singing had been slowed down to match the lifespan of a human.  I have included more info below for you.  Does this recording bring up emotions or remind you of our connectedness?

Jim Wilson & David Carson – God’s Cricket Chorus (1992).

The story behind GOD’S CRICKETS.

This unusual recording contains two tracks:
1. the natural sound of crickets chirping
2. the sound of the crickets slowed down to match and mirror the length of the average lifespan of a human being.

The angelic chorus you hear accompanying the sound of the crickets is NOT a synthesizer or a chorus singing. It’s the crickets themselves (slowed down) creating the effect. Really an amazing thing they’ve accomplished here. This recording can be played continuously in the background to create a natural soothing atmosphere for calming and healing.

This recording has been created by Jim Wilson.

This recording is an extended digitally remixed and mastered version taken from the original 1992 recording entitled “Ballad of the Twisted Hair” from the album “Medicine Songs” by David Carson and Little Wolf Band produced by Jim Wilson and released on Raven Records.

    If you like this as much as I do, you can download the html by right clicking on the video, then select “watch on You Tube” or “copy embed html” and paste to your destination. Wonderful!

    This is so beautiful. I love it – especially the slight imperfections that are yet precisely right to maintain the overall Harmony and shouldn’t be any other way. Wild in the way nature is wild. I just wish it went on for longer. Is there a longer version of this available somewhere? The other versions I have found on You-Tube are not as good as this recording.

      Hi Helen

      I have not been able to find a longer one that is the same. I understand that the original one was very short and was part of a song. You can always just have it looping, or repeating to get the desired affect.
