Auditory Illusions: Hearing Lyrics Where There Are None

Was looking for a midi for a project, but I couldn’t find the one I needed. Came across a website that promised to convert MP3s to midis, so I figured I’d give it a shot. Aside from the fact that the result sounded like a piano factory exploding, I also could have sworn I heard sung lyrics in it, even though the only midi track was a piano. Not sure how the converter works, but I guess the way vocals are recreated via piano is similar enough to the real song for our brains to mentally fill in the words where there aren’t any. Maybe? Pianos usually don’t talk.

Let me know how well you hear the lyrics, if at all, and what other songs you tried!

Stuff I used:


3D Midi visualizer-

Midi instrument editor –

The midis I made from the video:
