Riddle

So I saw this riddle and I can't seem to make any sense out of it.

I received this hint with it, some text and audio.

The crew fully entered in that mansion.

The ambient was uncomfortably frigid, like from another world.

Soon they felt a presence,

it was a horrible feeling.

Everyone was startled when they heard that faint voice:

"Count the words, count all of them"

Immediately, an unpleasant sound started:

Any ideas? I suppose there's some words encrypted into the audio, but I don't know under what form.

That audio sounds a lot like what you'd hear from old dial up modems just as it was starting to connect... But at a much, much lower bitrate.

There's several 'words' in there, if we can assume that's what each of the distinct patterns heard through the audio are.

Now, dial-up chirps were nothing else than a speaker connected to the tx/rx wires on the modem, so you could hear the start of the connection. The sound was audible because there was enough data coming through to produce a high-enough-frequency bit stream that it would come out on a speaker as hearable audio.

On this one though, I think the bit rate might be far too low to work the same way. I think each 'bit' in that message is actually being sounded out explicitly with a small blip sound.

I wish I had Audition installed on this PC now... It would be interesting to run it through some analyzers and see what would come out.

Also, I noticed that as one pattern ends and another begins, there seems to be a small crossfade period between the end of one and the start of the other. That might also just be an auditory illusion, but it might be suggestive too, for all we know at this point.

Cheers
The next sentence is the truth. - The previous sentence is a lie.

Spoiler:
The image has some black text which doesn't show up until you drag it onto a different background

There's a # before the purple squiggle, and a 7 after it
