Strange seal noises.

This is a clip from Werner Herzog's documentary Encounters at the End of the World, in which he interviews people living in Antarctica.

Two researchers living on the ice describe the seal noises they hear coming through the ice, and it really is something. They sound more electronic than animal and it's hard to believe these sounds are actually coming from seals. As the woman in the clip says, it definitely sounds like something you'd hear in a Pink Floyd song rather than an Antarctic sea.
