Hear Japan’s Earthquake in Real Time Music

Micah Frank is the founder of the Tectonic project, and a sound programmer/engineer from Brooklyn who produces aural interpretations of seismic activity.

The chilling soundscapes create an audio of disasters like the earthquake in Japan.

If you’re looking to interpret the sounds to get an idea of what was happening during the quake — where it took place, how far under the earth it was — there are some specific cues to listen for.
