Cymatics: Sound Made Visible

Cymatics is the process of making sound waves visible, and artist Nigel Standford shows just how that is done in a fantastic set of six audio-based science experiments. In one such experiment, Standford sends audio frequencies through a Chladni plate covered in sand and records the patterns that form in the sand. And in another experiment, he tapes a hose to a speaker and by matching the audio frequencies to the camera’s frame rate, he creates an illusion of water forming a spiral as it leaves the hose. It’s all very fascinating.

Check out CYMATICS: Science Vs. Music below.

To see the behind-the-scenes footage of these audio experiments, check out nigelstanford.com/Cymatics.

“Better Man Than He” Music Video Shot in MRI Scanner

Artist Sivu needed to think up a music video to his song, “Better Man Than He”. He had a brain wave.

Sivu lay in an MRI scanner for several hours and as the machine subjected him to loud noises, he made music of his own. Director Adam Powell collected and edited the real-time footage that shows the workings of Sivu’s mind as he sang his single.

Check out the resulting anatomical music video to “Better Man Than He”.

Stop Motion of the Day: Shugo Tokumaru’s “Katachi”

Have a look at official music video to Tokumaru’s single, Katachi.

Straight & Arrow: The Shocking Music Video

For the music video to his song Straight & Arrow, New York musician FaltyDL and Japanese artist Daito Manabe got a lending hand from a few volunteers.

Aesop Rock’s Graffiti Time-Lapse Music Video is Mesmerising

To promote his new single Zero Dark Thirty, American hip hop artist Aesop Rock enlisted the services of director Isaac Ravishankara and artist Coro to create a mesmerising set of visuals.

Ravishankara set up six Canon DSLR cameras that shot three-second exposures to create the time-lapse video of Coro as he painted a wall for a labour-intensive 10 hours. He then melded the footage of the ever-evolving painting with real-time video of Aesop Rock reclining against the wall on which Coro painted the mural (read the specifics of the production process here).

Zero Dark Thirty is taken from Aesop Rock’s forthcoming album, Skelethon. Check out the music video below.
