Seismic vibrations in the Eiffel Tower

"This recording of the Eiffel Tower in Paris was made using a sensitive geophone originally designed for seismic measurements that has been adjusted for field recording purposes. 

"The geophone was attached directly on to the main structure of the Eiffel Tower in one of the stairwells using a magnetic adapter. Through the geophone we can hear the actual vibrations of the 324 metre iron structure."
