We have recently come across a brilliant masterpiece, designed and executed in an unfathomably unique manner. These musicians use science to help us see sound, it is an experiment, done through music to explore how sound and matter come hand in hand. We personally think that sound does not only have the parameter we tend to hear, sound is a dimension we can partially perceive, and within this video, we delve into a fraction of sound and motion we can very well feel.
Cymantics is a music video that explores sound through matter.
In this video Nigel Stanford studied the effect of Cymatic frequencies on matter, using sand on a Chaladini plate, to create sound waves propagating from a speaker, and allowing the sand plate to dance in a brilliant manner.
Stanford also used a water dish placed on a speaker, creating sound waves and motion allowing the water to move with the sound frequency of the speaker below it.
The artist also experimented with a Ruben’s tube loaded in flammable gas and perforated into little wholes that act as Bunsen, when the organ plays fire ejects through the perforated wholes.
In addition the artist uses Ferro liquid, a magnetic liquid that can form various shapes along magnetic lines.
This is merely a fraction of the experiments used for the creation of this video, we recommend you view this masterpiece, and enjoy it for yourselves. We really had goosebumps looking
