While the physical CD isn't currently available even through Ebay, through the wonders of modern technology you can still listen to the full album online:

  High-sensitivity recordings of various types of insect 
  pests released for the 5th International working conference 
  on stored product protection, 1990.

  This is the full and unedited version of the recording.

  INRA. Insect noise in stored foodstuffs.
  "Ces vibrations caracteristiques, plus proches de la   
  musique que du bruit, trahissent la presence de tous ces 
  convives invisibles qui ne peuvent se tenir silencieux.
  A.J. Andrieu et F. Fleurat-Lessard."

  01. Detecting pests in stored foodstuffs and wood.
  02. Rice weevil larvae in rice.
  03. Angoumois grain moth larvae in maize.
  04. Grain weevil larvae in barley.
  05. Communication signals of termites in wood.

The opposite of rain samples on your mind.

I listened to the first quarter. All this squeaks and creaks have just enough rhythm to induce living form presence lurking closer, which stresses me out.
