Frozen lake sounds like a Star Wars battle


Posted on Tuesday, 12 December, 2017 | Comment icon 7 comments
This amazing footage of Gun Lake in Canada reveals the cacophony of strange sounds made by the ice.
The recording, which was uploaded on to the 'Mesmerizing Instruments and Sounds' Facebook page, captures the bizarre sounds of the 'singing ice' as it shifts due to temperature changes.

The noise is like nothing else on Earth - a strange combination of bursting bubbles, boiling water and the sounds made by blaster fire during a space battle in Star Wars.

While the phenomenon isn't new, it is quite unusual and is thought to be particularly audible when there is no snow on the lake's surface to absorb the sounds.

This particular example has so far been viewed over 160,000 times.

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

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.
