Earth Chorus

"The Earth has music for those who listen" 
--George Santayana
I read about this on Mashable yesterday.  In October, 2012, radio waves emanating from Earth were recorded by satellites investigating the Van Allen belts.  There are intense radiation zones that surround our planet. This recording was given the name "Chorus".   Here is the original recording:

What does it remind you of?

 Now, here is a remix of that "earthly" sounds, using interpretive dance.  The music was composed by Kerry Muzzey.  His song Looking Back was featured in Glee.  He has written other TV and movie themes as well. The dance is performed by DS2DIO (D-studio).  Check out their YouTube Channel.
