reckon this is real?
I do think this is real, but the credits for it are obscure. Jim Wilson and David Carson made the track for Carson’s 1992 album “Medicine Songs.” There are 2 tracks, 1 cricket chorus at normal speed, and 2 the recording slowed down. The speed is a lifetime of a cricket scaled to the lifetime of a human being.
What’s going on is explained well by a commenter on a Youtube video here:

The sped up tape wouldn’t sound right, as you’d have crickets chirping at normal speed with sped-up crickets layered? on top. Track A is crickets normal speed, track B is the slowed down crickets, mixed together.
So what’s the effect you are hearing?
It’s a phenomena of oscillation and phase-cancellation between the waves of each track; the resulting sound is the modulation of these two sounds together.
You’d never hear this in the real world, as the other track doesn’t exist.
