Ever wondered what sound a wobbling jelly makes?

The Daily Telegraph reports about sound artist Douglas Murphy, who recorded the oscillations of jellies wobbled in an anechoic chamber at University College London.

Douglas Murphy says:

It is refreshing to explore the sonority of a much neglected physical property: the wobble factor. Jelly entices us into a strange but compelling world of organic sounds. The sonic wobble is captured in two ways: by carefully recording the results of gentle coaxing and by expressing the wobble frequency as physically powerful base tones.

The captured sounds will be presented in a soundtrack that will be used Friday night at the London Festival of Architecture where leading firms of architects will compete for recognition of their creative skills with this unusual medium. Link via Boing Boing
