Sound Science I know hyperbole is über-fashionable these days, but I am not exaggerating one bit when I say this is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. New Zealand musician Nigel Stanford presents “CYMATICS”, a music video created with a host of mind-boggling physics experiments. To accompany the song, Nigel employed all sorts of scientific tools to make the invisible visible, allowing us to “see” sound via magnetic fields, electric arcs, flickering flames, and shaking sand. It’s got Chladni plates, a Rubens’ tube, some ferrofluids, a plasma dome, and a couple awesome uses of standing and interfering waves in water. And of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a freaking TESLA COIL! It’s all shot so, so, so beautifully, too. Seriously, I have the best case of physics feels right now. Just look at what science can inspire. Check out Nigel’s website for some behind the scenes on how it was done!
