100 ways to pronounce “Schoeps” – wait for the conclusion @ 1:30 by the owner Ulrich Schoeps!
The giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant. This is what a giraffe sounds like.
That’s it really… enjoy..
Bearded Seal Call: The Bearded Seals live in the Arctic and have a very interesting call. I can’t spoil it until you watch the video though.
So I wanted to start finding more articles for you guys and gals that included sound art, since it isn’t exactly mainstream. So introducing the first nugget of gold i dug up from the web, courtesy of sound + design. Haven is a very cuddly way to listen to the wind as all shall be explained in the video below 🙂
Despite what you’ve not heard, there are actual sounds in space. Though not as we first thought about it. I’m sure you have all seen the bell in a jar experiment.
Due to the virtual vacuum in space, it’s not sound like you and I experience it (that being waves pulsing through the air), but there are electromagnetic waves that pulsate at the same wavelength as the sound waves we can hear.
We are able to perceive sound thanks to our brain decoding all the various frequencies collected through our inner ear. This is not just done with the ear but also directly through our skull. This is now being utilised through technology like google glass. This is thanks to mathematical and computational models by researchers to understand the whole process — bone conduction — works. Along with technologies such as Google Glass, it is looking to be utilised in medical equipment, their paper was published this week in Nature Communications.
It looks very slick and sounds even more futuristic than Tron. The trailer for it below gives bites of the new Harley Davison sound.
We shall see more and more of the electric motor sounds in the future as everyone makes the switch. I wrote an earlier article about how cars are already designed with sound in mind, all as part of creating a driving experience that will add more value to the car. This is the same idea that is being implied by electric motor designers that want to turn the tide of boredom and weakness that is associated to electric motors. The quiet, slow, heavy car sounds of the past.
