Cymatics, the field of making sound waves visible by interpreting them through materials such as water, sand or magnets for their mesmerizing visual and often geometric shapes has gained popularity over the last few years.
This particular video named after the art form is part music video and part science showcase featuring 7 experiments, cymatic and tesla coil all happening in-camera. It comes from Nigel Stanford, an ambient composer hailing from New Zealand and the song is from his new album Solar Echoes. The video is directed by Shahir Daud.
There’s a whole lot going on in this well thought out production so check it out and a few of some of the behind the scenes videos.
