The spectrum of gravitational waves emitted after the formation of a black hole is dominated by damped oscillations, or ringing tones, represented by quasinormal modes. An analogy with the natural frequencies of a bell is quite fitting, since any system with a continuous spectrum permits complex frequency resonances. Some applications of spectral techniqes are considered here and the following question is posed: to what extent is the geometry determined by the quasinormal mode spectrum?
