Cymatics is the study of visible sound. It is also the title of a recently viral video that takes that study and turns it into a captivating music video featuring everything from ferrofluid, to a Chladni plate, to Tesla coils, and shows you what sound actually ‘looks’ like.
There is also a series of BTS videos that covers each of the contraptions used in turn:
1. Chladni Plate
2. Speaker Dish
3. Hose Pipe
5. Ruben’s Tube
6. Tesla Coil
To learn more about each of these, or the folks behind the music video at the top, head over to Nigel Stanford’s website by clicking here. You can actually download the final video in 4K resolution from his website, in case you want the Ultra HD experience.
