The first section of this recording, 5:32 in length, presents the audio at the original recording speed of 1.5 ips. At this speed the upper frequency components of the elephant vocalizations are barely audible to the human ear. The clapping sounds are elephant's ear slaps. The second section, 2:19 in length, is the original recording played back at a speed of 3.75 ips (2.5 times the original speed). Human voices and the hum of the air handling system are audible.
