How does one determine the resonant frequency of the earth? And
if one could, what would that have to do with music?

Musical sounds, I might add, don't normally have any one
frequency. They're enormously complicated, with frequencies all
up and down the spectrum sounding simultaneously. Not only that,
the frequencies change with time. I have software that can
display this rather neatly. If I had a recording of the sounds
allegedly made by Meier's alien ships, I could put it in digital
form on my hard drive, and analyze it with my software. The
result would almost certainly be a bewildering forest of spikes,
each representing a small stretch of the frequency spectrum,
some higher than others, but no single one sticking out above
the rest. (The software I'm using, for those who might be
curious, is the Spectrum Analysis plugin for Sound Forge. Sound
Forge is a standard professional-level digital audio editing
program for PCs.). A single cello note, apparently sounding a
single pitch, turns out to have well over a hundred frequency
components that show up on the spectrum graph. The sound of the
"beamships" was, I'm guessing, far more complex than that.)

And if the alleged sound of the ships wasn't musical -- if, in
other words, it's what we'd call "noise," rather than music --
then its frequency spectrum would be even more complicated. How
could it match the resonant frequency of a piece of tin foil,
let alone the earth?

We're dealing here with mystical blather.
