Solar Flare plays a mean power chord

I caught this in Gizmodo, sounds of a solar flare converted into music.

It turns out that the corona of the sun contains giant magnetic loops that vibrate much like a guitar string or a woodwind reed. And Sheffield University's joyously named Professor Robertus von Fáy-Siebenbürgen has created software to convert those vibrations into music.

Pretty amazing, I love listening to sounds of the universe. I think there was site which played some sounds coming from a comet. I wish I could be superman and fly around these things to hear what comets and suns sound like. Never expected the sun to have guitar like sounds. It sounds like a giant machine.

Very cool!
I would love to sample these sounds and utilize them in some music. They are so ominous and intriguing on their own, but I would love to manipulate them with some effects.

Here's a collection of sounds from various bodies:
