Soundless Music Creeps People Out
from the make-your-own-haunted-house dept
Some researchers studying the effect of “soundless music” (low frequency sounds that humans can’t hear) on humans have found that it generally seems to creep people out, and may be responsible for the common spooky feeling people get in places that are regularly considered haunted. How long until scary movies start incorporating this soundless music into their soundtrack to make their movies seem extra scary?

Could Infrasound induce religious fervor at gatherings? Certainly, the big pipe organs seem like candidates for infrasound.
Could troublemakers of the future induce mobs to greater heights of frenzy? Concrete pavement conducts low-frequency sounds well, if I’m not mistaken. Could pre-existing infrasounds account for some cases of bridge phobia?

Wasn’t there something about this in the movie “Attack of the killer tomatoes”? I don’t know if the tomatoes would describe their frenzy as “religious” though.
Deaf people have known for years about listening to music with their skin; it seems the mainstream is catching up to them. Mainstream youngsters have been going to nightclubs with deafening sounds for years, perhaps to subconsciously experience this.

The patent office has a patent on using high volume, low freq sound as a bugular repelling system.
Not really ‘news’ per say. Just more conformation.
