LifeViewer does not have a "sad trombone" feature, so get the sound clip from elsewhere:

x = 20, y = 22, rule = LifeHistory

This is trivial, but here is a 24-glider synthesis of the true-period 22 gun:

Back up the glider by ten cells or so and run the pattern again.

NOW I GET IT! But the actual reflection works. The input doesn't.

That's part of a known loop synthesis:

If someone synthesized a snakestretcher and a glider destruction that left behind a super long python, we could make a stupidly expensive LWSS (or MWSS by backing up the glider one generation):

Haven't seen a signal perturbation quite like this before:

x = 17, y = 19, rule = B3/S23

I'll see if this can be wrangled into something non-useless (a conduit), but the odds of that are kinda slim.
