How does the sun sound?
Classis FM ‘Awesome’ B.B.C. ‘Brilliant’ Sounds of the Sun via NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Centre : Music Amelia Chain ‘Solstice’
The pulsing metallic ‘otherworldly’ sound you hear at the beginning of the track that inspired ‘Solstice’ by Amelia Chain is the ‘sound’ captured from the Sun by astronomers at Stanford University who recorded acoustical pressure waves in the Sun by carefully tracking movements on the Sun’s surface. To do this, they use an instrument called a Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI), mounted on the SOHO spacecraft, circling the Sun 1,000,000 miles from Earth. The Sun’s sound waves are normally at frequencies too low for the human ear to hear. To be able to hear them, the scientists sped up the waves 42,000 times — and compressed 40 days of vibrations into a few seconds. The Video footage is curtosy of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
Amelia Chains ‘Solstice’ will be released 21st December 2017 as part of the Four Track EP ‘Chapter I’
