The Transcendental Sounds of Crickets

What song or sound fascinates you?

With this question in mind we started our 4th meeting of our group Sounds Transformative last Dec 13th in a San Francisco coffee shop.  Musicians, non-musicians, and people from different regions of the planet shared their fascination with certain sounds and songs. As we listened to each other we began to enter the mysterious realm of the relationship between ourselves and sound landscapes. In this intersection, notes, melodies, and sounds encounter sensations, feelings, emotions, thoughts, and sometimes, as a result, we can have a taste of the transcendent. A participant, musician Vishnu Eschner, shared one of the sounds that fascinates him: the sound of crickets. In this transcendental, slowed down version of  the crickets’ sounds we perceive notes that we are usually unable to notice.  Imagine if you were able to hear much more than you can, what might you be hearing? Please check the video below and observe  your experience.

Where does this sound take you?

PS: Thank you, Vishnu Eschner for introducing us to this fascinating sound.

    The Crickets Chorus take me to a beautiful lake in Valinhos, SP that I used to fish with my father. I had some great times there… Thanks for sharing Joseh!
