What does the Earth's movement sound like ?


Posted on Monday, 6 January, 2014 | Comment icon 10 comments

How do you record the sounds of the Earth ? Image Credit: NASA
Artist Lotte Geeven has recorded audio of our planet from the bottom of the deepest hole in the world.
Despite spending all of our lives on the surface of the Earth, one thing we never get to hear is what our planet's rotation and movement through space actually sounds like.

To tackle this problem, Geeven and a production team ventured deep in to the bowels of the Earth via the deepest open hole anywhere on the planet, a place located on the border of the Czech Republic.

At a distance of 5.5 miles underground, the team used special equipment to record the very sounds of the Earth itself.

The recording can be heard below.

That doesn't surprise me. I always imagined that the sounds of the molten core would be a burbling sound and the other sounds reflect what would be plate movement, etc. Somewhere in YouTube, there are recordings of the sounds of the planets, out in space, as they move through the universe, and each has its own specific song. The earth reminds me of whales singing.

'Chorus', also known as 'dawn chorus', are naturally occurring electromagnetic radio wave/s emitted from the Earth’s magnetosphere that are audible by the human ear. These radio waves are caused by particles within Earth's magnetosphere. A magnetosphere is the region surrounding a planet that is dominated by the planet's magnetic field. Solar winds (charged particles coming out of the Sun) blast against against Earth's magnetosphere, causing it to be shaped the way it is.The sounds in the video below were recorded recently on Sept. 5, 2012 and the sounds were picked up using radio receivers.

Huh. 5.5 miles. Seems relatively scant given that the depth to the center of our Earth is nearly 4,000 miles.
