    Gases have resonant radio frequencies. Earth's atmosphere is mainly
    composed of nitrogen gas, hydrogen gas, oxygen gas, water vapor, and
    CO2. If an audio signal is transmitted at the resonant radio
    frequencies of the above gases, will the music be heard?

  3. Reflections and resonations are passive modifications that will not
    produce new notes.

    There are audio frequency electrical noises in the atmosphere, though.
    I can't remember the name of them. You can pick them up on mountain
    tops using a whip antenna and a sensitive audio amplifier with a very
    high input impedance. Oh, and hold still too. Friction generates a lot
    of audio frequency electrical noise.

    Yeah, and a lot of 'em are due to electrical storms, so be sure there are
    some nice beefy local thunderstorms....

    VLF, dawn chorus, possibly caused by change in ionisation levels

    Depends upon how you define music. I produce some very resonant
    gases after eating apricots.
