Ever wonder what it would be like to hear yourself ascending Escher's staircase?

The "Shepard Tone" illusion makes this possible:

Daffydoug, I didn't have a problem hearing it at all, and I have no idea why you have a problem. Try later, maybe.

Pjpastir, I am a fan of M.C. Escher, too, but I am definitely and unfortunately not a musician!
