Sounds that do not exist

Let’s listen to a tape recording of sacred music – Tibetan monks or Gregorian singing. If you listen, you can hear how the voices merge, forming one pulsating tone.

Perhaps this effect would remain in the sphere of interests of only musicians, if not the researcher Robert Monroe.
