I’ve downloaded the mp3s, but they haven’t made it to my iPod quite yet. Maybe tomorrow.
The New York Times had a great story about Dr. Mark Whittle, a professor of astronomy at the University of Virginia who has taken the cosmic background radiation of the universe and made a series of sounds.
For the first 400,000 years, Dr. Whittle said, it sounds like a descending scream falling into a dull roar.
So of course the first thing we did was google him, find the site and turn the .WAV files in to MP3s for our iPods!
Right click / option click this link to download a zip file of the 13 sounds we also combined them all in to one MP3 which is in the zip as well.
If you d like to read more about Dr. Mark Whittle s work visit his site, there are a lot of presentations and information regarding Big Bang Acoustics.
