[Awesome] Hear The Sounds That Maggots And Centipedes Make

banggoesthetheorylogo
This is just WAY too cool not to share. BBC’s Bang Goes The Theory is running a series on the audio of life around us and they took the time to try and hear the quietest little critters possible: maggots, centipedes, and snails. By entering an anechoic chamber (a completely soundproof room that has zero acoustics) and setting up extremely sensitive microphones, the team gets to hear the sound of a maggot wriggling, a centipede walking, and a snail eating. Check out the video clip below.
For some reason, things like this simply fascinate me. Another example of this fascination is the guy who took slices of tree trunks and converted the age rings and wood grain into music. Check out that article here.
