Sparkle and grunt: The sounds of a solar flare

I really dig science that makes the inaudible audible. Earlier this month, I posted a link where you could listen to seismic waves from the Tohoku earthquake converted into sound. A couple years ago, we had sounds from space—plasma waves converted into sound.

This video, from and the University of Michigan, turns a coronal mass ejection from March 7th into some fantastic sounds—some resembling tinkling bells, and others sounding more like a 7th grade boys' locker room.
