Cricket Choir

A ghostly granular choir made from...loads of crickets....

The story

Well I suppose everything in our surroundings can be an instrument. Well, why not a cricket? Or MANY of them?

These fine and talented crickets were recorded near the Berkshires in Massachusetts at night and in the woods. Non union crickets (shhh) I recorded over the course of a few nights to get a variety of performances. I then threw them in to protools, time-stretched for some granular vibe, pitched them, filtered them and added some verb. I was surprised how choir like it sounded when I layered them together. For that reason I included them all in one Multi.

Enjoy!

  • A sparkling ambient choir

    It has a very beautiful texture and you can't hear the cricket-specific voice much, so this can be used just like another pad. The other day I had to de-cricket from the recordings, but listening to this library I thought I probably shouldn't have :

  • Incredible Choir Sound

    This sound actually works well as a choir or a pad sound. Very inspiring. Again sounds great alone or layered with strings. Non-union crickets. LOL. Enjoy!
