What is cymatics?
Cymatics is the study of visible sound via vibration of particles or liquid on a membrane. More simply put, cymatics is sound made visible. When sound vibrations encounter a membrane such as the surface of water, an invisible pattern of energy is then imprinted upon that surface. Depending on the sound frequency, the pattern may be geometric or kaleidoscopic.
The following experiment demonstrates the observable patterns created by Pink Floyd’s Welcome to the Machine.
