This Is What Music Would Look Like If We Could See It

Similar to the fingerprints of humans, every sound in the natural universe has a unique, vibrational ‘signature’. TheCymaScope is a device that detects these vibrations and embodies them in a digital representation, allowing us to actually see these audio fingerprints, and they are truly amazing. The CymaScope produces its visualizations by directing the vibrations of different sound frequencies toward a surface of liquid- water, alcohol, et cetera. It then digitally captures the geometric vibrations in the water, producing these beautiful images and making sound visibly interpretable.
