Exploratorium, a San Francisco based museum of science, art, and human perception, has launched a new interactive book exclusively for the iPad that allows you to explore the surprising side of sound.

Sound Uncovered, released less than a week ago, takes you through experiments you hear with your eyes and see with your ears.

This interactive book lets you flip through pages of quirky sound knowledge and hearing tests that will leave your ears puzzled.

How do you make a saxophone growl? Are there secret messaged in music played backwards? Why does the sound of gum chewing make people mad? You'll find the answers to these questions and more as you take an auditory trip to the place where sound gets truly interesting, the space between your ears.

Sound uncovered is free and can be found in the Apple Store.
