"Malfunctioning Microwave".

The high pitched sound that's repeating in the background that sounds like a broken record is the glass plate that keeps hitting something when it tries to turn and has to reset itself. The dominant sound is the microwave trying to keep going, however it slows down and finally stops with the crashing sound we hear at the end.
That's how I hear it anyways haha

Hello Jordan,

I have a few choices, here goes ...

"Vomit from hell"

"Rabbit Fall" Or

"Alice Fall"-(Note the sound of things breaking and falling into the rabbit/Alice hole and the voice sound disappearing...) A reference to the classic Alice in Wonderland.

I hope that you enjoy it!!!!!!

Thank you to make it all happend!!!!!

- Bee vs. ird

LOL, while writing that i came up with something even more genius,

- bee to the earth

it might sound like a bee failing to fly and falling to the floor, at the end you also hear a sound like something has fallen,

besides that, you also hear a higher pitched sound which may sound like a bird, "Bee" is pronounciation of letter "B" and "earth" is pronounced same as "ird" so together they spell "bird"

B to the ird
sometimes they do it with names too, for example: J to the ordan

therefore i think "bee to the earth" is the perfect name.

- B-B-B-BIRD IS THE WORD!

awesome song, and you can pronounce the "B-B-B" as "bee bee bee" if you want to haha, this one is pretty awesome too haha

other suggestions (less interessting than "bee to the earth")
- B - reakdown ("B" can stand for bee and for bird)

- pie (just because I want to eat one right now and i like 3,14)

- sinusoid (because sound somes from waves)

- interfering waves (because that what all sounds is)

- A cos(ωt + φ) (thats what a sinusoid is =D )

that's all for now,

pz,
Kevin

My idea is 'Zipwire through Peru'.
To me it sounds like you're travelling across a zipwire through the Amazon rainforest, because of the squeaky, insect-like sounds in the background.
