Black hole sounds
With a lot of data manipulation, NASA has released this. I propose a challenge to follow in music or words what is presented here.
Yeah, I listened to that earlier this morning. It is pretty ominous sounding.
"The note is too low for humans to hear, at around 57 octaves below middle C."
I'm going to need a bigger keyboard.
That sounds a bit like some of my tracks as it is.
I'll try to work this in to a tune.
I am not gonna read scientific "fine print" to find out what is the medium that vibrates near black hole, but there is a cloud of alcohol in space.
Would be interesting to model black hole sounds that propagate through cloud of alcohol. Of course it needs a LOT of processing power, like half of minting one bitcoin, but at least it would be something useful.
My 12 year old son got me to look up 'what a black hole sounds like' today before he went to bed. Think he must have heard about it at school. Lyrically, I can imagine something inspired by Stephen King novels as it sounds pretty spooky and ominous
Ominous sound indeed..or is it a Beatles' song played backwards?
Has anyone found a link to an audio file? I can't figure out how to extract the sound from the video -- would have to buy a piece of software that I really don't need.
You can download mp4 files of the Perseus galaxy cluster black hole, the M87 black hole, and our own galaxy's Sag A* black hole "sonifications" as well as a whole bunch of other space sounds here:
Both VLC and Audacity will let you extract audio from mp4 files (you'll need to install the FFMpeg plugin for Audacity first). They are both free:
Here's my #blackholemusic attempt:
I used VLC to create a WAV file as described in the link, then dropped it into a beat making plugin from the free "Inspired By Nature" pack for Max For Live, created by Dillon Bastian.
Does anyone here work with Apple? Any idea how to change a Mp4 into a Mp3 on a Mac?
