Sounds Of A Frozen Sea

This is pretty strange. Weird squeaking and creaking sounds of the frozen Black Sea in Odessa, Ukraine.

Sound effects for a future horror movie

One of the strangest sounds I have ever heard was "singing ice". An artifical lake had been covered in ice and as the ice had thinned and the wind picked up a little the ice had broken up into small shards and all been carried to the dam wall by the wind and current. The shards of ice had piled up in layers on the water at the end of the lake. As the ripples flowed under the ice the ice made a haunting keening noise.

I'm told this is not unheard of, but it is rare as it needs a very particular set of circumstances.

Sounds like pods of dolphins and whales during migration and breeding season.

A creepy sound is the cracking of ice on a frozen lake. It sounds like doppler shifted lightning.
