Lowest note ever sung: Tim Storms sings 8 Hz
Posted by Xeno on November 9, 2008
Humans can only hear between 15 and 20,000 Hz. Tim Storms can sing lower than anyone can hear. I’d like to know if there is some trick he used to learn this or if he just has unusually large vocal cords.
Although born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Storms was raised in Waterloo, Indiana. His musical affinity appeared at a young age. Four days after graduating high school, he returned to Oklahoma to begin his career in Christian music. … By vibrating his vocal cords at 8 Hz, Storms set a Guinness World Record for the lowest note produced by a human. His record was certified in January 2002. This note is below the range of a human’s hearing ability, two octaves below the lowest B on a piano. Storms also holds the Guinness World Record for the widest vocal range for a male. His records have been published in the Guinness World Records 2006. … Storms now performs with the previous holder of the record for the lowest bass note, Dan Britton. Britton is a managing partner of Pierce Arrow Theater as well as a performer, and had held the record for 20 years. – wiki
