In Taos, New Mexico, a strange, low-frequency hum plagues two percent of the local population. This persistent droning emerges seemingly from nowhere and affects those who hear it without relief. Some attribute “The Taos Hum” to hearing disorders, while others suggest that seismic activity or nearby U.S. military testing may be to blame. But local legends attribute the selective sound to more sinister sources. Inspired by the Amazon Prime exclusive series “Lore,” an anatomy and physiology scholar examines the nature of this unexplained phenomenon.
