love it. Its in the long-horned beetle group.
Should be easy for those who really know.
Whats your continent, if not state/region?

It's in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Guess it's not Indigenous..

Minot, ND

It looks like Batocera rufomaculata - see http://www.zin.ru/animalia/coleoptera/eng/batrufiz.htm for an image. Known as the tropical fig borer, it is reported to occur from the west coast of Africa to India and also discovered in Syria. Considered a very common species.

I don't know these, but click beetles have a spur underneath their belly that snaps into a space in the other body part when they bend- I think. Probably involves moving body parts, not a 'vocal' thing.
