Never-ending Scales, Practice Sightreading

Shephard Scales--check out this audio illusion:
You may notice that the scale always seems to be going down, but not getting much lower. It’s an auditory equivalent of an old-fashioned barber pole. But how is it possible in a sound pattern?

Practice Sightreading
Rhythm is the most important part of sight reading. If you play wrong notes but the correct rhythm, you will be in the correct place. If you play the correct notes but the wrong rhythm you will quickly become lost. This site helps musicians improve sight reading by creating random measures of Rhythm. Just choose the time signature, number of measures and the level.
