Yesterday I posted a video of a common nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) singing a lovely and complex song. Some readers thought it would make a nice ringtone or alarm and, sure enough, reader Cremnomaniac extracted the song as an MP3, tweaked it a bit, and made it available for 24 hours at the link below. His post was at 8:41 pm yesterday (Wednesday), so you have until this evening to download it. Here’s his/her comment:
Here is the MP3 for anyone interested.
I will leave it open until this time tomorrow. I’ve edited it slightly to remove some of the larger silences only. It’s 39 seconds and 1.3Mb.
I must say that seeing the modulation and timings of the song in graphic form is incredible. The the patterns and precision are immediately recognizable.
I don’t know how to turn MP3s into ringtones or alarms, but I’m sure we have plenty of tech-savvy readers who can do it.
Do post below if you’re using it.
