Bass - How low can you go?

How about 57 octaves below middle C?


I got your Bb right here...

A black hole for a subwoofer?

In musical terms, the pitch of the sound generated by the black hole translates into the note of B flat. But, a human would have no chance of hearing this cosmic performance, because the note is 57 octaves lower than middle-C (by comparison a typical piano contains only about seven octaves). At a frequency over a million, billion times deeper than the limits of human hearing, this is the deepest note ever detected from an object in the universe.
On my 5 string, I can hit a low B.

Very Very Cool. I wonder if it would be possible to pitch it up to the realms of human hearing, so we could hear it in some way....

just sample it at a lower rate and upsample... or timestretch it. bring 2.5 billion years down to a minute. wonder what sample rate you could use for 1.2212453270876721944659948348999e-14hz

i read this article in some magazine where they are recording trees "talking" and they speeded it up to hear it...i think it was like @ 5hz or some ****. it was for some movie i think, lucasarts? maybe... maybe someone else knows here.

"For years astronomers have tried to understand why there is so much hot gas in galaxy clusters and so little cool gas. Hot gas glowing with X-rays should cool, and the dense central gas should cool the fastest. The pressure in this cool central gas should then fall, causing gas further out to sink in towards the galaxy, forming trillions of stars along the way. "


sounds like a big ole space fart. dammit god, point that out the door.

AJ, I remember reading/watching something like that.

Someone is buisy pitching the black hole sound up, there has got to be. So who will be the first to use it in a composition? Also, if it is flat or sharp, would you tune the universe to our tuning standard or the other way around?

The velocity of the spinning should be related to the mass, so there could be a bigger black hole out there farting a lower pitch.

Toooot!

Get six black holes, throw more matter into each one at varying intervals thus tuning them to EADGBE, stretch them across time and space and PLAY that cosmic guitar using six supernovae as pickups thus giving a performance to the anti-universe on the other side.

I just hope they've got a Vipre using pulsars for valves and a Royer 121 with dark-matter ribbons on the other side.

With the headroom the big bang has allowed I think it would DEFINATELY go up to 11.

Just mind out for feedback.
