THE FROZEN LAKE SPEAKS | JANUARY, 2014
After one of the coldest Januaries on record, on this reasonably warm morning (35 degrees F) Deb and her friend Susan took a hike around an almost-completely-frozen Radnor Lake in Nashville. The sounds coming from the lake are REAL, and are NOT artificially enhanced. Frozen lakes, I learned, give off the most noise during major fluctuations in temperature, as the ice expands or contracts. Thin ice, like you see in this video, is especially good at this; it is more elastic and the odd sounds propagate better across the membrane-like surface. Watch, listen, and enjoy!
