London: The deep space actually sounds like the dawn chorus of birds singing in spring that`s interspersed with sun`s deep bass pulses.

Data collected by satellites and spacecraft was used by Andrew Williams to generate the sound that someone would hear if they tuned a radio in to outer space, the Daily Star reported.

Cluster II satellite used a Long Wave Radio receiver to record the sound on July 9, 2001.

williams said that the signals were outside human hearing range, so he lowered pitch and filtered them to make audible.

another recording of sun is its rhythmic pulses, here williams, leverhulme artist in residence at university leicester`s space research centre, accelerated 42,000 times provide 40 days pulses a few seconds, as sound occurs once every five minutes.
The sounds picked up by the Soho spacecraft are so deep that Williams had to magnify their pitch by 40,000 times.
