Can anyone replicate the sounds in this video that start at 3:50?

Sounds similar to the Star Wars guy wire sound they used for laser blasts. I accidentally created the same sound with a slinky when I was a kid (around the same time the first Star Wars movie came out). I suspended the slinky from the ceiling and held a cheap microphone against the other, then tapped it. This could be one of those effects that's actually easier to create mechanically rather than electronically.

Yeah, slinky's but other types of wire and springs too. I recent'y recorded cables used to stabilize a closed diving bell. They run down either side of it to keep it from spinning. They're doing a similar thing.

That said, you cna't really beat ice. The other good one is when you walk on it and the little cracks do a similar thing.
