The Singing lake... makes eerie noises

Why Does This Frozen Lake Sound Like A "Star Wars" Space Battle?

"Singing ice" makes weird noises caused by changes in temperature.

In a video posted on the Facebook page Mesmerizing Instruments and Sounds, we look out on Gun Lake in British Columbia, Canada. Not much is happening visually, but sonically viewers are treated to what sounds like a combination of the bursting bubbles of boiling water and the pew-pews of blasters in a Star Wars battle.

These amazing noises are the product of ice in the lake shifting, most likely because of temperature changes. The phenomenon has been noted and recorded in many places. It's particularly audible if there is no snow fall on the lake's surface to absorb the sounds as they travel.

But what explains the peculiar nature of the noises?

Unfortunately I couldn't here them.  I'll try at home.  The sound card in my work laptop is crappy.

Its a cool phenomenon, unless you happen to be standing on the ice at the time, then it is very much not cool

When Star Wars was first released, I used to imitate the lightsaber sound, if I did it in front of our un-neuter Tomcat, he'd shag any pillow or cuddly toy we put in front of him every time...great entertainment for kids...

Just a thought...

For whatever reason the vids audio is automatically muted on my end, so I had to follow OP's advice and un-mute the vid.
