Seems to me this is just a repeat of some stinky news … I already blogged about it.

CLASSICAL music’s ability to stir the soul and lift the spirit is undisputed. But its ability to break down sewage is only just coming to light.

A German company is trialling a sound system that replicates the vibrations and sounds of the concert hall which, when combined with oxygen, helps break down sewage. Sydney Water is monitoring the trial.

The process being tested involves a stereo sound system developed by a private company, Mundus. It claims the sound waves of Mozart’s The Magic Flute and The Marriage of Figaro, together with oxygen, boost the activity of micro-organisms in breaking down biosolids.

”Mozart managed to transpose universal laws of nature into his music,” a founder of the company, Anton Stucki, has been reported as saying.

”It has an effect on people of every age and every cultural background. So why not microbes? After all, they are living things just like us.”


I continue to believe Mozart would get a kick out of this.
