A Conversation for The Origin of Terry Pratchett's Discworld

saw an article in the press recently where scientists have said that the sound of the universe starting was a hum rather than a bang - reminded me of the listening monks (can't remember the book) and Soul Music. Life imitating art?
I think the monks were mentioned in a couple of the "Death" books.

More a case of art imitating life. That scientific theory has been around for about 10 years and I'm sure Terry would have read it.
