The Brown Noise

January 11, 2007 at 11:59 am (Cool Tech, Media)

The musical fruit - the more you eat, the more you toot.Huh. Rick Emerson just taught me something new. Noise has colors. During the show today, the equipment was making some noise, which he described as “brown noise“. Never heard of that before. I’ve heard of white noise, and pink noise, but never brown. And it’s not the same as the “brown note“, as seen on South Park. (The brown note is supposedly a low frequency sound that will make a person crap their drawers.) Nikola Tesla was credited with creating a non-lethal weapon based upon the “brown note”. Tesla was one seriously cool inventor / engineer who was decades ahead of his time.

Moral of the story – pay attention to what’s going on around you. You may learn something.
