Crickets and Chorus?

I wanted to share this very cool audio track by Jim Wilson. What you are listening to is a recording of crickets and the same recording slowed wwwwwaaaaaayyyyy down. Sounds like a human chorus, doesn't it? One the things I want to encourage you do is to try to think about familiar things, especially musical things, in new ways. It is those kinds of connections that lead to the deepest understanding, whether the subject be music or art or math or whatever. By the way -- we will have a chorus this year after school on Tuesday for interested 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.
