Cymatics

Cymatics [sy-mat-iks] is the study of visible sound and vibration. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and patterns are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. The apparatus employed can be simple, such as a Chladni Plate or advanced such as the CymaScope, a laboratory instrument that makes visible the inherent geometries within sound and music.
