    I think there is a link to the recording on the BBC page. You actually can't "hear" much… but it still is an astonishing idea. 148 years ago… :eek:

    If it was sold on the iTMS, they'd have to label it "explicit."

    I just want to hear the whole "recording" and find out if it can be freely used. :D

    I personally thought it was incredibally scary sounding. Not just like, scary how that was figured out so long ago, but scary sounding. Creepy. Loved it though, amazing.

    Wow that is freaky. All I could make out was the pitch changes. Reminds me of my grandfathers original Edison Phonograph. Very strange to hear sounds and music that are that old.
