We all use acoustics to absorb or to reflect sound waves. The use of semi-solid acoustic gels (similar to once used in salt bridges in electrochemical cells) only they would have to absorb the pressure variances present the atmosphere and transmit them unto ionic species embedded (mixed) in the gels. This way the moving of these ionic species will be related to the intensity of sound waves absorbed and will create a varying electromagnetic field which can be used to harness electricity. The use of these gels in high noise areas like aircraft interiors, airport interiors, concerts or just regular sound proofing may not only give power but also be helpful to reduce public nuisance..
