Listening to the Northern Lights
Produced by Barrett Golding
Listen with RealAudio in 14.4, 28.8, or G2 SureStream.
Natural Radio recordist Steve McGreevy was in Canada last year for the
Northern Lights: not to see them, but to hear them. You can do that, if
you have the right equipment. And Steve's got a van full. Producer Barrett
Golding introduces us to Natural Radio -- the sound of earth's magnetic
field. Like the auroral lights, Natural Radio effects tend to be stronger
around the spring and
fall equinox, and near the earth's poles. So whenever Steve gets a chance,
he heads north, into the wilderness, away from electrical interference,
where the listening is best. There's a double CD of Steve's Natural Radio
recordings called "Electric Enigma," put out by Dutch East India Trading.
