The picture of the boy screaming

Ever heard of the song Gesang der Junglinge? If you haven't, you're lucky.

Gesang der Junglinge was created by Karlheinz Stockhausen, a famous German composer from the 1950s.

My name is Lisa Tampton and I am here to show my findings with the world.

What you are hearing is not music, but a picture converted to audio form. Now, electronics in 1955-56 were mainly analog, not digital, so talking about giving compression to a digital image such as .jpeg or .png was unheard of at the time. But I swear to you, if you take the audio from 8:59-9:01 and convert it to an image file, you will find a very disturbing image.

From what I can tell, it is a young boy with pale skin and a frighteningly twisted face, screaming. I'm still unsure why or how, this could be possible. Was Stockhausen trying to hide something?

I've shown the image to some of my friends, and something very... Unusual happened. Some of them said they could see a white ring in the child's right eye, but others said they couldn't. The strange thing is... The ones who saw the white ring said that they started hearing noises around their homes, most of which sounded like a little boy faintly singing...
