A Choir of Crickets Courtesy of Robert Wilson

Best known for his collaborations with Philip Glass on Einstein on the Beach, and with numerous other artists, including Lou Reed and Tom Waits, American experimental theater stage director and playwright Robert Wilson has always had a keen ear for the truly imaginative. None can be a greater example of his visionary mind than that of his “choir of crickets.”

Sounding like a chorus of angels, the audio is actually a field recording of crickets chirping at night, slowed down at a downtempo pace, to create a vivid, still-life ambient piece. The track was supplemented with the original chirping recording, giving off a culmination of glowingly, heavenly sounds that shows music in its most “natural” form.
