Wow. Sounds like the soundtrack to Forbidden Planet, which was made by Bebe and Louis Barron who constructed custom circuits and messed about with them.
The article says that the length of the sound has been compressed from 24 minutes down to 73 seconds, and the frequency has been lowered by a factor of 44! I wonder what the sound 'really' sounds like!
