An Introduction To Cymatics

Discover The Freaky World Of Sound Made Visible      05/08/09

Make Magazine created this often hypnotic look at the world of cymatics - the study of visible sound and vibration.

Notes Make's Collin Cunningham:

Sound can have some amazing effects on liquids - and some downright bizarre effects on non-newtonian fluids such as the conveniently simple mixture of cornstarch & water.

Wow, that is amazing. Looks so freaky, worthy of a horror pick. If you chuck in some food coloring too you might get something really horrible.

Strange !

If Peter Gabriel had seen this Sledge Hammer may have been a very different video .

On another note the water version of the experiment reminds me of a phase scope and I wonder if that could have been the preverbal light bulb ?

Reminds me of Zappa's 'City of Tiny Lights' video - That was freaky too...
