THE ACCELERANDO ILLUSION

The Accelerando Illusion is an original musical illusion implying an endlessly rising tempo. Try clapping along! A steady whole-note pulse morphs into a half-notes, then quarter-notes, eighth-notes  and soon you are at the limit of how fast your hands can clap...yet the music sounds the same as when you started. 

 

Make sure you start slow and warm up; the tempo starts at a moderate 115 beats per minute, but ends somewhere in the region of 100 quintillion BPM!
