Link: A Machine to Listen to the Sky

A Machine to Listen to the Sky
Dan Tapper Sound Design

“A Machine to Listen to the Sky is an audio-visual installation revealing the unheard sounds of the earth’s ionosphere and beyond through custom built Very Low Frequency (VLF) antennas elevated through the use of a tethered weather balloon. These antennas reveal the electromagnetically produced sounds of lightning, the northern lights, Jovian radio, sun activity and man made technology.”

Dan has a book VLF: A Sound Artist’s Guide on issuu.com explaining how to make your own antenna.
