Re: MRI recording

It's amazing how different that sounds from outside... listening to these recordings makes me want to reproduce the sound as it sounds from inside the machine. 

And though this all may seem somewhat off topic, I think those of us who've had an MRI are also responding to the cyclical loop of the sounds as they sequence as well as the sounds themselves. The unexpected jarring laser sounds that cycle, set against the engulfing rhythmic mechanical hums. You can't help but wonder if that feeling is principally the sensation caused by the incredible magnetic force or if it's the audio and therefore tricks we can incorporate into looping to ultimately reproduce that sensation? I tend to think the later and that page: https://www.ynic.york.ac.uk/information/mri/sounds though not, to me, what I was looking for, is an excellent reminder of the components.

Thanks for sending. I've been too busy to read the rest of these and I'm going camping for a week and a half but at some point I'm going to look for any other posted sounds. In the mean time, if you don't mind sharing, please let me know if you have any other MRI recordings by direct email so I for sure get it and I'd LOVE to hear what you folks make of it if any of you make an MRI track!

Thanks Kris, I have found some sounds https://www.ynic.york.ac.uk/information/mri/sounds also info on how these could be recorded.

I too am fascinated and actually enjoy MRI's myself as far as it goes :) I am going to ask about that, I get a disc of the pics, maybe they have something with the sounds..

Good luck with that.   But since I led this CD project, I may have the source files. I received them from an MRI tech who figured out a way to record the sounds.
They all pretty much sound the same, unless you just want your own personal MRI session recorded.
I actually enjoyed the session very much. It was peaceful and the sounds lulled me into a calm mood.  <wlEmoticon-smile[1].png>
Steroid, spinal tap shot?  That is a different story. I did not enjoy that!

Use a personal recorder but you can’t get it near the thing.  Ask the attendant whether they can do the record-button thang while you’re in it.  And ask for the video frames!

Hey loopers! I have an MRI scheduled this eve and was wondering how you could record the sounds. I love the ct album
MRI but didn't get much info about how to do it.
