My friend told me that a gentleman called Robert Shepard introduced at year 1964 a musical illusion, which was a scale progression which sounded both ascending and descending infinitely. Is this known to anybody here? Tried to do some Google search with the name and the year, but I only found a wikipedia match, and there weren't notes or tablatures of that trick.

Did you check this article?
The whole thing appears more scientific than musical anyway.
 
This site has some interesting stuff as well: http://www.exploratorium.edu/exhibits/highest_note/ex.about.fr.html
