For a never-before-seen look at how an opera singer is able to produce such an amazing sound, German baritone Michael Volle performed Song to the Evening Star from Wagner’s Tannhäuser during an MRI scan.

The technique uses magnetic fields and radio waves to see right through the human body, and is able to capture movement resulting in this fascinating, but freaky footage. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]
