For 14 years he conducted experiments animating inert powders,
pastes, and liquids into life-like, flowing forms, which mirrored
patterns found throughout nature, art and architecture. What's more,
all of these patterns were created using simple sine wave vibrations
(pure tones) within the audible range. So what you see is a physical
representation of vibration, or how sound manifests into form
through the medium of various materials.
It illustrates the very principles which inspired the ancient Greek philosophers Heraclitus, Pythagoras and Plato, on down to Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler, the fathers of modern astronomy.
These Cymatic images are truly awe-inspiring, not only for their
visual beauty in portraying the inherent responsiveness of matter to
sound, but also because they inspire a deep recognition that we,
too, are part and parcel of this same complex and intricate

Watch as complex and intricate forms, often resembling living organisms, arise from inert powders, pastes and liquids, solely through the influence of sound...
