Close your eyes and listen to this clip. It may sound like a Tibetan meditation bowl or a giant cosmic didgeridoo, but it's actually the sun! Kind of.

A group of very poetic scientists from NASA and the ESA (The European Space Agency) used data from NASA's Solar and Heliospehric Observatory to map the vibrations that form the "low, pulsing hum of our star's heartbeat." The result will either chill you out or instill a deep and vague sense of heliacal unease.

Sounds like something right out of Black Mirror. Or the sun is in pain.

Cool!

Many years ago I made a somewhat similiar recording using a variable frequency audio oscillator recorded on a continuious loop of mag tape. There were also some randomly inserted some step frequency changes. A neighbor used it as background effects for a rather extensive Halloween installation. Several parents complained about it because it scared their little ones!
