So What Do Black Holes Colliding Sound Like?

So big news is the Gravity Wave detected from a distant collision of two black holes out there in the universe. The result was the Gravity Wave that created a shift in the space-time continuum (always wanted to use that phrase somewhere) of 7ms. Apparently, this confirms Einsteins theories on the subject and also opens up a whole new area of study for the boffins to explain that which is yet unexplained. We don't profess to be experts on this kind of thing, but we do know it made a sound of some kind.

Granted, its been frequency shifted to bring it into the audio spectrum to make some kind of recognisable sound, but this is nothing new, the sound of the planets has been through similar processes and people have made complete works of music from those.

According to

To get the unforgettable sound, the researchers working with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) scientific collaboration used light signals collected at their detectors in Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington, on Sept. 14, 2015, and converted them into sound waves.

I must confess, I was expecting something more grand, cinematic or dramatic, but there you go.

So heres a challenge, anyone want to have a go at making a track? We'll share them.
