Strange Sounds from ice: Sounds from Tenaya Frozen Lake, Yosemite, USA

The Sounds from the frozen lake Tenaya was recorded on January 13, 2012 in the morning first in the air and then in the ice. These sounds are magical, strange, weird. It is amazing that something “immobile” triggers such music. These sounds are produced when ice floes rub against each other or bend.

These audio samples are also very impressive.

In the air at 9:35 am
