Terrible Resonance: A Live Podcast about Subversive Sound, Earthquakes, Ghosts, Outer Space, Sonic Weaponry, and Whales

With Jeff Emtman and Joe Morgan

There is a murky and uncertain world of sound below the bassiest bass we can hear.  Despite the physical limitations of our ears, these rumbles, called “infrasounds” affect us, in wildly different ways–sometimes beautiful, sometimes terrifying.

Terrible Resonance is a journey from 0-20hz, telling stories from the well-studied rumbles of Earth’s crust, songs of whales and elephants, and resonant points in the human body to the areas of the unknown that lead to wild speculation: hauntings, the “brown” note, spontaneous orgasm and not-so-secret weapons programs from the Pentagon.

The show runs roughly 90 minutes and includes a live infrasound demonstration from Brooklyn-based musician Joe Morgan.  Earplugs will be provided.  Children and service animals should use extra precaution during this portion of the show.
