Funny coincidence.  Just this weekend I had a noise suddenly crop up that sounded much like this.  It was a fairly high-pitched swirling noise, like a bearing going bad, but was intermittent and independent of engine speed or load.  I tracked it down to the oil pump/filter area.  Since the oil pressure is pretty constant, my guess was a tear in the oil filter flapping around.  It was not near due for a change, but oil and filter changes being about the cheapest thing I can do to this car, I changed them.  So far, the noise seems to be gone.  Worth a try.
