The Music of Earthquakes
A public lecture prepared by Andy Michael given at the USGS, AGU, public elementary schools, universities, Sigma Xi forum, and the National Science Teachers Association National Convention. Publicity has included coverage by CNN, FOX, CBS, NBC and local newspapers.

  • Is a cello like an earthquake?
  • Is a trombone like the earth?
  • Is an earthquake like an orchestra?
  • Insights from looking at music and listening to seismograms.

    For more information and to listen to earthquakes see Earthquake Quartet #1 ~ by Andy Michael
    soprano (Stephanie Ross)
    trombone (Andy Michael)
    cello (David Schaff)
    percussion (earthquakes)



    Seismograms for 15 similar earthquakes in China plotted in the colors of the rainbow.
    When superposed the colors combine to form white light, revealing where the traces
    overlay exactly. Where they are dissimilar, blends of various other hues remain.
