Artist records the sound the Earth makes 9 kilometres down

Amsterdam-based artist Lotte Geeven has recorded the sound the Earth makes from the ‘deepest hole in the world’, which is apparently nine kilometres deep, near the Czech border. Seismologists, geophysicists and engineers helped her with this project, resulting in a series of sound installations.

It reminds me of some classic industrial music, probably Lustmord or a loop of 1980s Zoviet France. It’s soothing but eerie at the same time.
