After becoming enthralled with speaker design over the summer, I wanted to highlight the correlation between music, vibration, fluids and visuals. You don’t often think of music or sound as something you can see, but it is possible to show off the beauty of sound waves moving through something other than the invisible air that surrounds us. Wave dispersion is important for speaker design, as well as speaker placement in a room, and videos like this just begin to scratch the surface of what may be possible for sound visualization.
This video was made by SONY and directed by Cole Paviour, with many others helping in the film for their. It is very similar to the popular cymatics video by Neigel Stanford (posted last semester in best of web). This video has slightly better videography and photography, while I find the Stanford video to be a bit more mesmerizing.
